NAICS 236 - Construction of buildings
Ownership: Private Sector
Oregon Statewide
 
Industry Definition
The Construction of Buildings subsector comprises establishments primarily responsible for the construction of buildings. The work performed may include new work, additions, alterations, or maintenance and repairs. The on-site assembly of precut, panelized, and prefabricated buildings and construction of temporary buildings are included in this subsector. Part or all of the production work for which the establishments in this sector have responsibility may be subcontracted to other construction establishments-usually specialty trade contractors. Establishments in this subsector are classified based on the types of buildings they construct. This classification reflects variations in the requirements of the underlying production processes.

Chart titled, Oregon Statewide Covered Employmentd


Code changes (or 'non-economic code changes') occur when a correction is made to a firm's industry classification or county. Consequently, the net employment changes shown in this column do not reflect actual economic events and must be taken into account when analyzing trends across multiple years. Any such adjustments are made in January of each year. Currently, code change data is available for private-sector industries only. Changes of 5% or more are indicated by a 'CC' note on the employment chart.
