Definition: Production of building construction and civil engineering (Indices)
The objectives and characteristics of indices for variable 110 (production) also apply to the indices for the variables on building construction and civil engineering.
The division of production between building construction and civil engineering is based on the classification of types of construction (CC). These indices aim to show the development of value added for each of the two main sections in construction, namely buildings and civil engineering works. These indices are calculated by assigning the basic information (deflated output, hours worked, authorisations/permits) to products in the CC and then aggregating the product indices in accordance with the CC to the section level.
