Source: Office for National Statistics

Construction Statistics brings together a wider range of statistics currently available on the construction industry from a variety of sources. This edition updates the figures for Tables 2.4, 2.8, 2.9, 3.1, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5 that were supplied in Construction Statistics Annual 2013. From 2014, Table 1.7 is no longer produced after a public consultation which showed it had little benefit to users. All other tables that were previously contained in the annual Construction Statistics publication are no longer collated and published by the ONS. Where these data tables are no longer published, links have been supplied to enable users to obtain the relevant data. This is the sixth web based only edition and the tables produced by ONS are available in Excel, allowing independent analyses of the published information.
