Volume index of sales of construction companies

The volume index of sales of construction enterprises describes development in the output of the entire construction industry. The index describes relative change in the volume of output compared to the average output in the base year.

The volume indices of sales of construction enterprises are obtained by weighting together the volume indices of sales of building construction, civil engineering and specialised construction activities. The used weights are the value added of output in the base year.

The index is published monthly. Apart from the original index series, a seasonally adjusted series and a trend series are also calculated.

The index is calculated using the Tax Administration's enterprise-specific periodic tax return data and data from Statistics Finland's sales inquiry. The observation unit is an enterprise or a local kind-of-activity unit.
