This rebound comes mainly from construction (7.2%) and, to a lesser extent, from industry (-0.0 after a 2.1% decline in the previous quarter). However, the decline continued in the tertiary sector (-1.0%, after -0.2%).

On average over the first quarter of 2019, temporary working volume, measured in Full-Time Equivalent jobs, declined by 1.3%, after a 1.4% increase in the previous quarter).
