The Ministry of Industry, Trade and Tourism, through the S.D.G. for Studies, Analysis and Action Plans, which is organically dependent on the General Technical Secretariat, is responsible for carrying out the survey on the current situation of the construction sector, included within the National Statistical Plan.
In addition, we collaborate as a "Partner Institute" with the European Union's Harmonised Programme for Business and Consumer Surveys. This means that the survey is carried out according to a common broad methodological approach, a common timetable and a common set of questions, mainly of a qualitative nature.
The aim is to collect information on the current situation of the companies and on their plans and expectations for the near future, and then add it to build up the sector's confidence indicators. The final objective is to obtain a monthly Economic Sentiment Index for the economy as a whole.
Below is the schedule for carrying out this survey as well as a monthly dossier with an analysis of the results.
