In addition, there is annual and quarterly information on the value of total overseas trade in building materials by imports and exports for the United Kingdom.

Apart from price indices and overseas trade, the information is in volume terms for production, deliveries and stocks. It is collected from the producers of each building material.

Information for calculating the price indices is collected by the Office for National Statistics and those relating to building materials are reproduced in this publication. Overseas trade is collected by Customs & Excise from which that relating to the values for building materials is extracted.
