BUDAPEST, Oct 15 (Reuters) - Hungary's construction sector output fell by 6.1 percent year-on-year in August after a 0.2 percent annual rise in July, the Central Statistics Office (KSH) said on Thursday.

On a monthly basis, output was 3.6 percent lower than in July based on seasonally and calendar-adjusted data, it said. In the first eight months, construction sector output rose by 4.7 percent year-on-year.
