Seasonally-adjusted production in the construction sector increased by 0.4% in both the euro area and the 28 EU member states in November compared with October, Eurostat, the statistical office of the European Union, announced on Wednesday. In October 2016, production in construction grew by 0.4% in the euro area and by 0.3% in the EU. Compared with November 2015, production in construction remained stable in the euro area and rose by 0.2% in the EU.

This increase in construction production appears to reflect increases in  house prices across the EU.

Compared with the second quarter of 2016, house prices rose by 1.3% in the euro area and by 1.5% in the EU in
the third quarter of 2016.
