Construction output statistics

The construction output statistics are intended to provide a general measure of quarterly changes in the volume and value of construction output in NI.

Due to the coronavirus illness (COVID-19) we anticipate that there will be some changes in terms of our regular statistical production. See the COVID-19 and the production of statistics page for more information.
