Did you receive an administrative decision from Statistics Norway regarding your duty to provide information for the official survey entitled Hours worked in construction (RA-0324)? This web page provides you with information on how to answer the survey.

What information must be reported?

In order to get statistics that show the development of production in construction industry, we need information about employment and hours worked during the quarter. The number of employees is to be distributed according to domain of work.

Your answers are valuable

The purpose of this survey is to collect information about activity in building and construction industry. Public and private entities, researchers, politicians, and use the data to understand challenges in the construction sector, and for future planning. The index is a requirement according to the EEA Agreement, and it is also used by international organisations.

Who needs to complete the survey?

Statistics Norway collects information from a sample of about 2000 enterprises. The sample is drawn from the Register of Legal Entities, Statistics Norway’s register of all Norwegian-registered legal entities in both the private and public sector.

If the enterprise has changed name, type of activity, or address, this must be reported using the Coordinated register notification. More information on this is available at www.brreg.no/home. The survey must still be answered if there has been no activity in the enterprise during the period to be reported.
