Construction Statistics brings together a wider range of statistics currently available on the construction industry from a variety of sources. This edition updates the figures for Tables 1.7, 2.4, 2.8, 2.9, 3.1, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 that were supplied in Construction Statistics Annual 2012. All other tables that were previously contained in the annual Construction Statistics publication are no longer collated and published by the ONS. Where these data tables are no longer published, links have been supplied to enable users to obtain the relevant data. This is the fifth web based only edition and the tables produced by ONS are available in Excel, allowing independent analyses of the published information.
Our thanks go to the external contributors and in particular to our colleagues in Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the Scottish Government, Welsh Government and the Northern Ireland Executive.
Our thanks also go to the members of the Consultative Committee on Construction Industry Statistics (the forum for joint consultation on construction statistics by the Industry, BIS and the ONS).
