CMD’s First Half 2015 U.S. Regional Construction Starts

Aug 26, 2015

The tables below showcase CMD’s U.S. regional non-residential building and heavy engineering/civil construction starts.

2015 08 26 CMD US Regional Construction Starts Graphic

The latest (first half of 2015) 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 CMD 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 Bureau of the Census and the Department of Labor (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.
