VALUE OF CONSTRUCTION WORK DONE, VOLUME TERMS
SEASONALLY ADJUSTED ESTIMATES
ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 80% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 19 January 2004 and in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8762.0) on 16 January 2004.
Note that additional time series are available on AusStats. For the state and territory building work done series shown in tables 9 and 10, work done (and corresponding percentage changes) for each state and territory is available by private sector/all sectors and by type of building, i.e., by the same dissections as shown for Australia in tables 7 and 8.
CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE
Two new pages have been added. Page 4 shows graphs of original estimates of total construction work done and compares the states/territories, while an index of tables is included on page 5.

CONSTRUCTION WORK DONE, CHAIN VOLUME MEASURES
TREND PERCENTAGE CHANGE
The total value of construction work done has shown marginal falls for the last two quarters, following eight successive quarters of growth.
Engineering construction work done fell marginally in the September quarter, following nine quarters of growth.
Total building work done has shown marginal falls for the last two quarters, following eight quarters of growth.
Residential building work has declined for the last two quarters (but see the first dot point on page 1), following eight quarters of growth.
Non-residential building work has remained virtually steady for the last two quarters, following eight quarters of growth.
New South Wales, Victoria
Since early 2001, construction work done has risen strongly in New South Wales and Victoria. Both building and engineering work increased, with building recording the stronger growth in both states.
Queensland, Western Australia
Construction work done has risen strongly in Queensland and Western Australia since early 2001. Growth in Queensland has been driven mainly by the building sector, while in Western Australia the engineering sector was predominant.
South Australia, Tasmania
Construction work done has risen strongly in South Australia since early 2001, with growth in both building and engineering work. Tasmania has also shown growth since 2001, although it has been relatively flat over the last 12 months.
Northern Territory, Australian Capital Territory
Growth in the Northern Territory over the last two years has been driven by the engineering sector. Construction work in the Australian Capital Territory is dominated by the building sector which has shown steady growth since early 2001.
