About this dataset

The Building Activity Survey releases provide estimates of the value and volume of work put in place on construction jobs in New Zealand. The value of building work includes residential building work and non-residential building work, which are summed to give all building work. Non-building construction work, such as roads and bridges, is excluded.
The value of building work put in place measures activity in the construction sector, and complements building consents issued information (which represents the intention to build).
