In its commitment to provide relevant and timely information, the National Statistics Institute (INE) publishes a series of products related to the construction sector:
- The Census of Building Permits measures construction activity according to the intention to build in the national territory, through an analysis of the Standardized Building Form (Formulario Único de Edificación, FUE) for housing and non-housing purposes.
- Monthly information is provided on the authorized surface area (in square meters) of the permits granted by the Departments of Municipal Works throughout the country.
- The Index of Income from Construction of Large Companies (Índices de Ingresos de la Construcción de Grandes Empresas, or IICGE) compiles information on the income of large companies engaged in construction activities and civil engineering works. A quarterly analysis of variations is provided as an approximation of the evolution of construction activity.
