ConstructConnect’s Through Third Quarter 2016 U.S. Regional Construction Starts

Economic News

The tables below showcase ConstructConnect’s U.S. regional nonresidential building and heavy engineering/civil construction starts.

2016-11-02-First-Three-Quarters-2016-US-Regional-Construction-Starts-Graphic

The latest (through third quarter of 2016) year-to-date results are compared with the same period of last year. The percentage changes are shown in the right-hand columns.

These tables will be updated as each new quarter of starts data “actuals” becomes available.

With 50 states and the District of Columbia, choosing regional boundaries is challenging.

Many different groupings by entities other than ConstructConnect have been tried over the years. Media sources often apply an intuitive approach, referring to the Great Lakes States, the Great Plains States and/or the Far West.

But Tables 1 through 4 happily accept the agglomerations specified by both the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), thereby facilitating comparisons with the major data releases from government.  

The Northeast, Midwest, South and West designations are instantly compatible with Census Bureau and BLS statistics on housing starts and unemployment rates.
