  • The volume of construction output fell by 1.1 per cent (-£295M).  New work fell by 1.8 per cent (-£340M) and repair and maintenance rose by 0.5 per cent (+£44M) (constant price, non seasonally adjusted series; months of August, September and October 2011 compared with the same months in 2010).

  • The Q3 2011/Q2 2011 growth in the constant price, seasonally adjusted series has increased from a fall of 0.2 per cent to a growth of 0.3 per cent. This increase is due to additional data returned by businesses, the receipt of new deflator information and the impact of seasonal adjustment.

Construction output is a monthly series of the output of the construction industry in both the private and public sectors. In the months before the quarter month, current and constant price not seasonally adjusted data by sector are published. On the quarter months, additional constant price seasonally adjusted index data and value data by sector are published. On the months after the quarter, additional current price data by type of work and region are published.
