Sources and methods of data collection
The data are collected by using the reporting method on the Monthly Report on Issued Building Permits (GRAĐ-44a form).
Coverage and comparability
The Monthly Report on Issued Building Permits is collected from the administration bodies competent for construction affairs in major cities, the City of Zagreb and counties as well as from the Ministry of Physical Planning, Construction and State Assets, which issue building permits for constructions as specified in the Building Act (NN, Nos 153/13, 20/17, 39/19 and 125/19).
Data on types of constructions and works are classified according to the National Classification of Types of Constructions – NKVG (Methodological Guidelines No. 41, ISBN 953-6667-33-9, the Croatian Bureau of Statistics, 2002).
Constructions are structures connected with the ground, for which construction works are carried out and which are made of construction materials and ready-made components.
Buildings are permanent constructions covered with a roof and closed with outer walls. They are built as separate useful units that protect from weather and other external conditions, intended for dwelling, for performing a certain activity or for storage and upkeep of animals, goods and equipment used in various industrial activities and services, etc.
In this survey, constructions covered with a roof but without (some of the) walls, e.g., porches and underground constructions, such as underground shelters, underground garages, underground shopping centres and other business spaces (e.g. in subways), etc. are also counted as buildings.
Residential buildings are constructions in which 50% or more of the useful floor area is intended for dwelling purposes.
Non-residential buildings are constructions without dwelling areas or in which less than 50% of the overall useful floor area is used for dwelling purposes.
Floor area of a building is the sum total of the areas of all floors of a building placed inside outer walls.
Useful floor area of a dwelling is the floor area of a dwelling, measured inside the walls of the dwelling.
Volume of building is the sum total of the volumes of all roofed spaces of a building, including outer walls.
Civil engineering works are all constructions not classified under buildings, for example roads, railways, pipelines, bridges, dams, constructions intended for sports and recreation, etc.
New constructions are newly built structures built on a location where no structure existed or on a location previously cleared by demolition.
Reconstructions are construction works that affect the main characteristics of already existing constructions, for example, additions and extensions, conversions and other works, which may significantly improve the occupancy value of a construction (for example capacity, quality, function) and/or prolong or at least restore its duration.
Value of works is defined according to the bill of costs submitted by an investor, which is used for defining the tax paid for the issuing of a building permit.
