The development of turnover was positive in all industries of construction. In August to October, the growth was strongest in building construction, where 10.7 per cent more turnover was accumulated than one year earlier. The turnover of specialised construction activities increased by 5.5 per cent during the period and that of civil engineering by 4.1 per cent.

In August to October, the sales volume of construction enterprises increased by 5.6 per cent in building construction. The sales volume of specialised construction activities increased a little, by 0.6 per cent from the year before. The sales volume of civil engineering remained almost on level with the previous year.

The volume index of enterprises’ sales is calculated by removing the effect of price changes from the turnover index series.

Industries of enterprises have been revised in the data released in January

Starting from this statistical release the latest industries defined by the Business Register have been taken into use in the turnover and wage and salary indices. The industry corrections are visible as revised data in some of the published industries for the years 2017-2018. The effects of the changes are taken into consideration in statistics production so that no breaks occur in the time series of the published index series. The interpretation of the statistics also remains unchanged in the renewal. Revisions to annual changes in industries are presented under Revisions in these statistics.
