The production of the construction branch covers construction works conducted on the territory of the Slovak Republic and abroad by supplier construction enterprises with the major activity in the field of building and construction registered in the Slovak Republic (including tradesmen) and by construction establishment of non-construction enterprises. Predominating building and construction activity of the enterprise is determined by its registered appurtenance to divisions 41, 42, 43 of the Statistical Classification of Economic Activities SK NACE Rev.2 (if it is not reported otherwise). Data are presented in methodology and organization structure of the current year.

  • with 20 or more employees - exhaustively
  • with up to 19 employees
    • if their annual turnover reached EUR 5 million or more - exhaustively
    • if the annual turnover did not exceed EUR 5 million - selectively
  • Data for self-employed persons are estimated.

Monthly data of the last quarter are preliminary and are adjusted quarterly on the base of processing quarterly reports (Quarterly Report of Production Industries Prod3-04).

Annual (definitive) data

The SO SR releases annual definitive data approximately 9 months after the end of the reference period. It collects them from the data of annual statistical reports (Annual report of production industries in construction Roč Stav 1-01 and Annual report of production industries in small enterprises in construction Roč Stav 2-01).
