The Department of Building and Housing has released the Key Indicators for the Construction Industry. These indicators report on dwelling consents, GDP, employment and other indicators of change which affect the construction sector. To view the full report go to http://www.dbh.govt.nz/key-indicator-reports.
These reports include retrospective data, some short-term forecasts, and a commentary that ties everything together in a cohesive summary.
Each report brings together information from a range of sources, such as Statistics New Zealand, Quotable Value, and the Department’s own internal sources, to give a comprehensive picture.
