Table 2 shows:

  1. The division* showing the largest  growth in total housing in 2011(18 per cent) was from businesses classified to 'Infrastructure'.

  2. The largest contributions to the 8 per cent growth in 2011 came, as would be expected, from businesses classified to 'Building construction' (41 per cent), although all contributions to growth were similar across all three divisions.

* This is the division to which a business is classified on the ONS's Inter Departmental Business Register.  So, for example, a business classified to 'infrastructure' (that is, its main activity is infrastructure construction) may also carry out 'housing' work.
