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 20 April 2005 and in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8762.0) on 19 April 2005.
