A Statistical Overview of the Construction Industry from 2000 to 2008

Introduction

The construction industry covers general construction and construction trade services. Activities within it include building and peripheral construction services, such as plumbing, site preparation, and other installation trade services.

Because it contributes around 5 percent to gross domestic product, the construction industry is important to New Zealand’s economy. With over 50,000 businesses it is the third largest industry by business count in our economy. Almost two-thirds of all construction enterprises have an employee count of zero. Those with an employee count greater than zero account for around 7 percent of total employment across all industries.
