According to the data, the monthly decrease in October was mainly due to the falls in building construction by 0.5% and in civil engineering by 0.3%. The data showed that Sweden, the United Kingdom and Germany recorded the largest decreases by 2.1%, 1.6% and 1.3% respectively in the production in construction while Slovenia, Hungary and Slovakia posted the largest increases respectively by 8.5%, 5.9% and 5.7% on a monthly basis.
