This subject sets the context for an understanding of the operations of firms within the construction production process. This includes conducting statistical analysis of the data concerning construction. By analysing construction’s contribution to national income and its linkages to other sectors of the economy it is possible to draw conclusions and gain insights into the operations of firms involved in the production of the built environment.
