CONSTRUCTION WORK DONE
In the March quarter 2010, the total value of building work done (in trend terms) in South Australia rose to $1,221.5m, an increase of 4.4% over the December quarter 2009.
Between the December quarters 2007 and 2009, the trend estimate for the value of engineering work done rose sharply ($628.0m to $1,283.0m) before plateauing in the March quarter 2010 ($1,285.0m).
