Construction price index

The construction price index expresses the change in the cost of construction taking into consideration the price changes of basic inputs. These are divided into three main groups: labour, building materials and building machines.

The calculation of the construction price index covers four groups of buildings: detached houses, blocks of flats, industrial buildings and office buildings. Price information is collected by a sample survey covering construction, rental and wholesale companies and retail enterprises in ten cities.

The construction price index is published quarterly.
