Release Information

Building permits and building completions represent the core of building activity statistics, providing an essential basis for short-term assessments of the building market’s current economic situation.  The data are monthly and calendar and seasonally adjusted.  The breakdown includes residential and non-residential construction.

Data are based on monthly records of bulding permits.  The survey program provides for the collection of data on the building owner’s assignment to an economic sector, type of building, kind of building activity, the size of the building and estimated cost of building. The outcome of this statistical survey is indispensable information to be used by legislative bodies, the Federation’s and federal states’ governments, by builders’ and craftsmen’s associations and chambers and it is also required as a basis for numerous decisions to be taken with respect to the entire economic policy and, in particular, the building policy.

Data are subject to revisions.
