The index represents the value of new orders for construction work received during the month by 50 major constructors. Figures refer to the value of original contracts and construction for own use but not the value of subcontracted orders. Data refer to construction of Buildings and Dwellings. Both public and private new orders are covered by the survey. The survey is compiled from the results of the Survey of Construction Orders Received which is a postal survey directly conducted by the Ministry of Construction. This is the percentage change compared with the corresponding period in the previous year.
