BUILDING OPERATIONS IN REPRESENTATIVE CITIES IN 1920.1
INTRODUCTION.

This is the first animal report on the above subject issued by the
United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. For several years past the
Geological Survey of the Department of the Interior has collected
and published data relative to building operations in the larger cities
of the country as indicated by the building permits issued. At the
initiation of the Geological Survey and with the consent of the
Bureau of Labor Statistics the compilation of these data was trans­
ferred early in 1921 from the Geological Survey to the Bureau of
Labor Statistics. The chief interest of the survey in its compila­
tions of past years appeared to be in the material used in construc­
tion; that is, whether or not the buildings were built of wood, brick
or tile, stone, or concrete, or were of steel skeleton construction.
The entrance of the United States into the World War caused a
check in building operations in 1917 and 1918, and conditions be­
came serious, the building of new homes not keeping pace with the
increase in population, especially in many of the larger cities of the
country. There was a great demand for living quarters, rents rapidly
increased, and housing conditions became congested. The public
interest in building operations centered not to any great extent in
material used in construction or the amount of building as a whole
but primarily in the prospect of getting a place in which to live.
With this phase of the problem in mind the Bureau of Labor Sta­
tistics undertook to continue the reports as issued by the Geological
Survey, and to enlarge the inquiry to cover the use of the buildings
constructed and to ascertain as far as possible the number of families
provided for by new building each year.
Questionnaires were sent to 218 cities having a population of
35,000 or over. Reports were received by correspondence or through
special agents from 207 cities. Upon analysis it was found that
reports from 196 cities were approximately complete in all their
details, while returns from 198 were sufficiently complete to show
classification by materials used, and reports from 9 others were
acceptable as to the total number of permits issued and the aggregate
construction costs but could not be used in the distribution of details.
1 Preliminary summary figures appeared in the M onthly L abor R eview for July, 1921, and in a pam­
phlet on “ The Building Situation” issued by the Chamber of Commerce of the United States.

BUILDING OPERATIONS IN 1920.

In preparing the questionnaire it was recognized that the records
of different cities would vary in completeness of detail and that esti­
mates would have to be accepted for some items. Estimates that
appeared sound have been accepted and used.
In 196 cities with a population of 35,000 or over from which
returns were received, $1,204;490,764 was expended in building con­
struction for the year 1920. The population of these 196 cities was
34,572,904, or 32.7 per cent of the total population of the United
States. There were 68,637 one-family houses constructed at a cost
of $296,124,663, or 24.6 per cent of the total amount of money spent
in all kinds of building. There were only 5,402 two-family houses
built and 846 one-family or two-family houses with store combined;
but while in all the one-family and two-family houses combined there
were onlv about 81,000 families provided for, there were 93,121 garages
built. An unknown number of families were provided for in the 1,496
apartment houses that were built as such and the 239 apartment
houses with stores combined. Still, making liberal estimates for
these, automobiles fared better than families. There were 426 moving
picture and other amusement places built in these cities during the
year at a cost of $40,522,240, or considerably more than the cost of
churches and hospitals combined; and while these cities constructed
547 schoolhouses, their cost, $50,023,140, was but little more than
half the money spent on garages.
The importance of these figures from a social point of view is that
they show that building construction for the purpose of housing
families lags far behind the current increase in the demand for houses.
If we apply the marriage rate that obtained in 1916 to the population
of these 196 cities we find that in 1920, 362,785 marriages took place
in the cities considered. It used to be that a marriage very generally
meant a new separate family and a new demand for a home either
through purchase or rental. True, those conditions have somewhat
changed; but if only half of the newly married couples seek homes to
themselves we are building not more than half of the accommodations
required, so that instead of catching up with the result of the cessa­
tion of residence building during the war we are not providing hous­
ing for more than 50 per cent of the newly established families. True,
there is an offset to this in that the number of deaths releases for the
use of new occupants a certain percentage of dwellings already built.
Just what influence this has upon the housing situation is not known,
but with all allowances made the figures would seem to indicate an in­
creasing doubling up of families in these cities.
In this undertaking the Bureau of Labor Statistics has had the co­
operation of the United States Chamber of Commerce, which sent
letters to local chambers asking them to urge the local building in­
spection offices to make prompt and complete reports to questionnaires
received from the bureau. Such action was of substantial assistance.
Advance figures for 131 cities were furnished to the chamber of com­
merce, which issued a pamphlet on the subject. The chamber of com­
merce is urging a standard form of permit for adoption by all cities.
Standard forms would lead to better and more comparable statistics.

EXPLANATION OF TABLES.

EXPLANATION OF TABLES.

Three general tables are presented.
Table A (pp. 7 to 11) shows for 207 cities the number of permits
issued or buildings authorized and the cost of the buildings, by years,
from 1914 to 1920, inclusive, in so far as data are available. The
Geological Survey expanded its list from year to year and each year
some cities failed to report, hence complete figures are not available
for all of the 207 cities. For 131 cities the table shows the number
of permits issued or buildings authorized and the estimated cost of
the buildings each year from 1914 to 1920, inclusive. The total
amount of money involved in the permits for these 131 cities is as
follows:
1914.................
1915.................

1917.................

..............$749,515,813

..................... 1 ,2 5 9 ,0 4 4 ,8 6 8
..................... 1 ,3 4 3 ,6 2 9 ,0 3 6

In addition to the 131 cities mentioned, the table contains a broken
series of annual reports for 76 cities. No city appears in the table
unless figures for 1920 were secured. Unfortunately, the figures for
earlier years do not show a distinction between permits and buildings;
in some cities the figures relate to permits, m others to buildings.
In the questionnaire for the 1920 figures there were two questions on
this subject— the first asked for the number of permits, the second for
the number of buildings.
Of the cities showing an increase in cost of construction in 1920 over
1919, the greatest increase was in Charleston, S. C., which shows 251
per cent; that is to say, the construction was three and one-half times
as great in 1920 as in 1919, measured by cost. Of the cities showing
a decrease between these years, the largest decrease was in Dubuque,
Iowa, where there was a reduction of 67 per cent in the estimated cost
shown on the building permits between the years 1919 and 1920. Of
the 10 largest cities in the United States, New York, Cleveland, Boston,
Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Los Angeles showed a gain in 1920 over
1919, while Chicago, Philadelphia, Detroit, and St. Louis showed a
decrease.
Building inspectors in most of the cities covered by the report show
that there is a pressing need for dwellings, conditions being especially
bad in the larger cities.
These figures as to the cost of buildings, as indicated by building
permits, must not be interpreted as indicating the relative physiesd
amount of building construction, as the cost of construction has
greatly increased between 1914 and 1920. A table of index numbers
is published by the Engineering-News Record (May 12, 1921) showing
the change in the relative cost of building construction from 1913 to
1921. The figures take into consideration the rate paid common labor
and the price movement of the three construction materials least
influenced by local conditions, steel, lumber, and cement. These
index numbers are as follows:

The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not undertake to estimate
the physical amount of building construction or the change in this
amount from year to year. It is to be regretted that the permits
do not show the floor area of the new construction or the cubic
contents, or both.
Table B (pp. 12 to 25) shows the number of permits issued and
the estimated cost of buildings authorized in each of the 207 cities
reporting for 1920 by the principal material used in construction.
The figures are shown separately lor new buildings and for additions,
alterations, and repairs. Detailed data are shown for 198 cities,
while totals are for 207 cities. This table, on account of its size, is
printed in two sections. The last column of the second section
shows the rank of each city as indicated by the cost of construction.
Table C (pp. 26 to 49) relates to new construction only and the
proposed use of the building. There are two parts to this table—
the first part covers residential buildings and the second part nonresidential buildings. Eleven cities which reported grand totals of
new construction and additions, alterations, and repairs, but which
did not report details as to proposed use of the buildings, are not
included in this table.
In the questionnaire the number of families per dwelling provided for
in the new construction was requested. The answer, of course, is
apparent for one-family and two-family dwellings, but for multi­
family dwellings, consisting of apartments and tenements, the returns
received are incomplete.
It is impossible to tell whether or not the ratio of apartment houses
to the total number of dwelling houses has increased materially. It
is to be presumed that it has, however, for the table shows many
apartment houses to have been built in the cities with a population




5

EXPLANATION OF TABLES.

of 75,000 or less. The building inspectors in some of these cities
reported that multi-family dwellings (or apartments) were erected
in their cities for the first time during 1920. They gave as a reason
that apartments for rent brought in a better return for the money
invested than single-family or two-family houses.
One peculiar fact the table shows is that in 1920 there were more
garages built than buildings of any other one kind. Public and
private garages could not be separated, so the figures show garages
rom the small private ones costing $100 to the large commercial
arages costing $50,000 or more. By far the greater number,
owever, are the small private garages costing $1,000 or less.
Following is a summarization of the data in Table C, according to
the use of buildings. This table gives the totals for 196 cities that
reported the necessary details. In five cities the data were not en­
tirely segregated and a parallel tabulation is given for the 191 cities
having a complete segregation. Referring to the figures for the 191
cities it will be noticed by grouping dwellings and apartments together
that 34.8 per cent of the cost of all buildings was spent for the housing
of families.
Next to dwellings the greatest amount of money, 16 per cent of the
total expended, was for factories and workshops. Stores and other
mercantile buildings ranked third with 11.9 per cent. Then followed
in the order named office buildings 10.8 per cent, garages 7.7 per
cent, schools 4.2 per cent, amusement places 3.4 per cent, hospitals 1.8
per cent, and churches 1.5 per cent. It will be seen that more
money was expended for amusement houses than for churches and
hospitals combined, and that almost twice as much was spent for
garages as for schools.

It is a recognized fact that the ultimate cost of a building is not
always that stated in the building permit. There may be an occasional
intentional misstatement of fact, but more often modifications in
plans or specifications change the final cost figures. Further, it is
recognized that some permits may be issued and building plans then
suspended temporarily or indefinitely. However, building permits
are at present the most complete available figures for building con­
struction. The time may come when occupancy permits may be
demanded for new buildings. Such figures would eliminate permits
issued but not used.
It has been found that in some cities there are no building codes
and that cities of some considerable size have practically no records
of building permits. The fact has also been developed that in some
cities nominally requiring permits considerable building is done with­
out permits because of laxity in inspection and in permit enforce­
ment.
While this report is incomplete in some particulars, it is the best that
could be prepared by the method used, and from the information
available, and it is hoped that this report will stimulate interest in
building construction not only in the cities here represented but in
other cities as well and lead to improvement in building codes and
building records.
