The construction and heavy industry benchmark covers industries that are often doing things on a grand physical scale. They employ engineers, machinery operators and other skilled workers who can bring big projects and endeavors to life.
We consider this an emerging benchmark: it has enough data available for us to use bootstrapping to create a representative sample. As the sample grows in size, some scores may slightly change. Our research has shown that our bootstrapped scores are consistent with our standard benchmarks. Read more about the methodology.
