SURVEY OF BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

For the three months ending ...............................................................................................

GENERAL REMARKS

The purpose of this quarterly enquiry is to collect data on building operations throughout the country. Currently, the only information pertaining to building activity is that obtainable from building plans approved by the Town and City Councils. This information is deficient for two reasons-

   (a)   It excludes the activities in the rural areas.

   (b)   It does not give any indication of the commencement of construction of the approved projects; since it only tells us the number and estimated value of new plans approved. The intention of this new survey is to collect data on the number and value of projects currently undertaken. In this way it is hoped that reliable information on building activity can be made available to planners.

This enquiry is conducted under the STATISTICS ACT (Cap. 17:01). The data you provide will be treated in the strictest confidence. Only statistical personnel sworn under the ACT will have access to the data you provide.

Please complete both copies of the enclosed questionnaire and return one copy to this office within 30 days of your receiving it. The second copy is for your records.

Where actual figures are not available on time, careful estimates will be accepted. In order to produce statistics which are up to date, it is MORE IMPORTANT for us to receive your best estimates by the due date than exact figures very late.

........................................................................................................................................

Notes on completing the questionnaire

   1.   Include particulars of all building jobs and all building alterations and repairs with a value of P3 000 or more.
