The bar chart (right) compares monthly contract awards with the level of awards in the same month a year earlier.

The line graph (below right) shows the rolling 12-month total of contracts awarded. Each point on the graph is the total of contracts awarded in the year to that month.

This helps smooth out seasonal variations and provides a guide to work in hand.

Recent months have seen a slight improvement in contracts awarded, but this has not affected the rolling total, because levels are still below those of last year.
