Economic theory suggests that construction investment varies directly with business and consumer confidence in national economic situation and inversely with price changes and interest rate. Studies of public and private sectors new housing and other new construction works using OLS regression analysis on UK data reveal the time lags and dynamics of these relationships. The time lags reveal the question of how rapid the construction investment could respond to changes in these underlying economic factors, as this may substantially determine private and public sector construction investment policies.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
