The source writes:

Data are compiled in compliance with the 1998 Law on Building Construction Statistics. 

Building activity surveys of building construction (building activity statistics) are regularly carried out at federal level in order to determine the volume, structure and development of building activities and to update the stock of residential buildings and dwellings.

The item directly surveyed is the building, which is classified as either residential or non-residential and further categorized by type of building.  Residential buildings are classified as one-, two-, or multi-family houses or as residential homes.  Non-residential buildings comprise, for instance, office and administrative buildings, agricultural buildings, factory buildings and workshops, hotels and restaurants.  Civil engineering projects (i.e. roads, tunnels, and bridges) are not covered by these statistics.
