Letter of Transmittal
U nited States D epartment of L abor,
B ureau of L abor Statistics,

Washington, D. C., June 1, 1942.
The Secretary of L abor:
I have the honor to transmit herewith a statistical report on build­
ing construction in the United States, 1941, prepared under the
general direction of Herman B. Byer, Chief of the Bureau’s Division
of Construction and Public Employment. The estimates of total
construction expenditures were prepared under the supervision of
Harold Wolkind, and the estimation of new dwelling units in nonfarm
areas was under the supervision of Sidney Jaffe. Nellie E. Ratchford, assisted by Thomas A. Loughrey, was in charge of the tabula­
tions of building-permit reports, while Edward M. Gordon supervised
the tabulations of Federal construction contracts. Kathryn R.
Murphy assembled the tables and prepared the text.
A. F. H inrichs, Acting Commissioner.

Building Construction, 1941
Estimated C on stru ction Expenditures in U nited States
The construction industry was one of the first to be stimulated by
the war program, since troop housing, military and naval bases,
airports, shipyards, ordnance and other war-material plants, and
housing for war workers were prerequisites for the all-out war effort.
In 1941 construction expenditures for military and civilian require­
ments reached a total of $10,969,000,000, which was 70 percent above
the total for 1939.
The Federal Government began awarding contracts for military
and industrial facilities on a large scale in the summer of 1940, and
the initial effect of these contracts on the volume of construction
expenditures is reflected in the increase in military and naval con­
struction and publicly financed industrial facilities in 1940. How­
ever, the major part of the 13-percent increase in construction ex­
penditures between 1939 and 1940 was in privately financed con­
struction, which represented approximately five-eighths of the 1940
total of $7,299,000,000.
Private construction continued to increase in 1941, but at a much
slower rate than public construction. Consequently, the public
program accounted for almost one-half of the $10,969,000,000 spent
for construction in 1941, as contrasted with less than three-eighths
of the total in 1940.
Acute shortages of certain building materials, particularly metals,
necessitated measures to curtail nonessential construction. The
S. P. A. B. policy announcement of October 9, 1941, stipulated that
no priorities assistance would be given for nonessential construction.
However, this order did not prohibit such construction if builders
could get material without priorities. The War Production Board
Conservation Order Lr-41, which became effective on April 9, 1942,
was designed to bring about a much more rigid control of the use of
critical materials by providing that no construction could be started
(except in a few specified cases) without permission. Furthermore,
projects already under construction were being carefully examined
by the W. P. B. on an individual basis with the object of halting
construction on such projects if the scarce materials to be used in
them could be put to more effective use in the war program.
With the Federal Government scheduling the largest volume of
war construction in the history of the nation, it is anticipated that
construction expenditures in 1942 will exceed the 1941 total. Because
of the measures to conserve scarce materials, the expansion in public
construction will be at the expense of private construction.

Scope o f Data
The Bureau of Labor Statistics began collecting data on building
permits in 1920, but until the end of 1932 only cities in the population
class of 25,000 and over reported. Since then the coverage has been
extended several times, and reports are currently being received from
incorporated places with populations of 500 or more persons and also
from some unincorporated areas.
Building-permit data are collected by the Bureau directly from local
building officials, except in the States of Illinois, Massachusetts, New
Jersey, New York, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, where State
departments of labor collect and forward the data to the Bureau.
In addition, the Bureau receives notifications of construction projects
financed by Federal and State Governments.
The permit-valuation figures represent estimates of construction
costs made by prospective builders when applying for permits to
build in the case of privately financed construction, and the value of
contracts awarded in the case of construction financed with Federal or
State funds. Figures for the Federal Government also include the
value of force-account construction started, i. e., construction work
for which a Federal agency employs its own labor instead of contract­
ing for it. No land costs are included.
The construction expenditures shown in table 1 are the first in a
new series of estimates of the total volume of construction made by
the Bureau ol Labor Statistics. These estimates differ in two impor­
tant respects from other figures shown in this bulletin. First, they
represent construction expenditures rather than the value of permits




ESTIMATED CONSTRUCTION EXPENDITURES

issued or of contracts awarded; and, second, the figures are more com­
prehensive since they include all types of construction financed with
public and private funds.
The remainder of this bulletin is a revision and continuation of
information on construction activity published in Bulletin No. 693
of United States Bureau of Labor Statistics. It is divided into two
parts. Part I outlines major trends in building construction during
the period from 1921 through 1941. It is composed of two sections—
the first dealing with all types of building construction in reporting
cities, and the second, with estimates of residential construction
throughout the entire nonfarm area of the United States.
Part II, which is also divided into two sections, presents more
detailed information on the volume of construction in 1940 and 1941.
The first section contains an analysis of building construction in
2,449 cities with populations of 1,000 or more which reported to the
Bureau in both 1940 and 1941. The second section contains tabula­
tions of the amount of construction financed from public funds; it
includes other types of construction as well as building construction
and also includes construction outside corporate limits. Figures for
Federally financed construction are complete, but those for construction
financed from State funds cover only two types of construction—
public buildings and highways. A tabulation is also presented of the
value of street-paving work started in 51 of the larger cities of the
United States. Whatever publicly financed building construction
was located within the corporate limits of the reporting cities has also
been included in the tabulations for reporting cities in other sections
of this bulletin.

B uilding C onstru ction in 257 Cities, 1921 to 1941
Summary for A ll Building Construction
To relate current activity to past performances of the building
construction industry, the Bureau prepares series showing the annual
volume of building construction in 257 of the larger cities 1 throughout
the country. Covering more than two decades, the figures in table 2
and the chart on page 8 outline cyclical movements in building con­
struction in these cities.
The rise in permit valuations which began in 1939 continued
through 1941, when the building industry experienced the best year
since 1929. Although permit valuations were more than five times
as high in 1941 as in the depths of the depression in 1933, they never­
theless had not attained half of the volume reported in the peak
year, 1925.

GENERAL TRENDS IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

In “ good” years new residential construction has accounted for the
major part of the building activity. Throughout the period from
1930 through 1935, however, permit valuations for nonresidential
construction exceeded those for housing, and in 1933 and 1934 the
volume of new residential construction fell below that for additions
and repairs. The volume of new residential construction has, there­
fore, shown much wider fluctuations over the past two decades than
either of the other classes of construction included in table 2 and the
chart on page 8.
However, during the defense and current war period nonresidential
building has expanded relatively more than housing. The index of
new residential construction moved from 152 in 1939 to 175 in 1941
(on the basis of the average for 1935-39 as 100), while that for new
nonresidential construction rose from 106 to 225.
The index for additions, alterations, and repairs has remained the
steadiest of the three throughout the 21-year period. In 1941 it
stood at 113, as compared with a peak of 150 in 1929 and a low of
44 in 1932.
Five Leading Cities

Five cities accounted for approximately 28 percent of the permit
valuations in the entire 257 cities during 1941. Although the amount
reported for New York City in 1941 was about 15 percent lower than
in 1940, that city continued to be the leading center of building-con­
struction activity in the country. Los Angeles registered a 28-percent
increase during 1941, and Washington, D. C., showed almost as great
improvement. The increases in Los Angeles were about equally
divided between residential and nonresidential buildings, but in
Washington they were chiefly for new housing. Chicago returned
to the list of 5 leading cities shown in table 3 in 1941, having been
displaced by Philadelphia in 1940.

Permit Valuations, Building^Material Prices, and Wage Rates

Expanding building activity during the past 3 years has been ac­
companied by rising prices of building materials and increasing wage
rates for building-trades workers. The index of wholesale prices of
building materials shown in table 4 was higher in 1941 than in any
previous year except 1923. The index of union wage rates per hour
in the building trades reached a higher point in 1941 than in any year
for which the Bureau has records, and was 15 percent above the
average for the 5 years 1935-39.

N ew Dwelling Units

Estimates of the number of new dwelling units placed under con­
struction in the 257 cities during each year from 1910 through 1920
are presented for the first time in table 5. These cities have contained
at least five-eighths of the urban population of the United States since
1910, with the distribution among the several geographic divisions
approximating that of the total urban population. During the
decade 1910-20, the rate of growth of these cities was 28 percent as
compared to 29 percent for the total urban population. Since that
time, however, the total urban population has grown increasingly
faster than the population of these cities, with a rate of 23 percent for
the 257 cities as compared to an urb^n rate of 27 percent during the
twenties, and rates of 4 percent and 8 percent, respectively, during
the thirties. The new series provides a reliable measure of year-toyear fluctuations in urban residential construction during the decade
including World War I; and for the period beginning with 1920, when
the bias inherent in fixed samples begins to affect this series noticeably,
estimates of new dwelling units provided in the entire nonfarm area
are also available. (See table 10.)
More new family-dwelling units were placed under construction in
the 257 cities in 1941 than in any year since 1929. Although the
232,000 homes shown in table 5 for 1941 were over 11 times the number
reported in the low year, 1934, they represented only about half the
volume for each year from 1923 through 1926. The 1941 rate of
construction was equivalent to somewhat less than 50 new homes for
each 10,000 persons living in the 257 cities.
Fluctuations in the index of residential rents were confined to a
much narrower range than movements in the index of new dwelling
units provided, but the cyclical patterns for both series were approxi­
mately the same. The Bureau of Labor Statistics index of rents
was 106 in 1941, as contrasted with an average of 100 for 1935-39,
inclusive. Supplementary surveys of rent changes in critical housing
areas made by both the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Work
Projects Administration indicate that increases in rents since the

winter of 1940-41 have been much greater in certain areas near war
plants or military and naval bases than in the cities included in the
Bureau’s rent index.

5 Population figures are actual enumerations for the 257 cities in the census years 1910,1920,1930, and 1940;
estimates for other years are straight-line interpolations of census figures.
2 Estimates for the period prior to 1921 are based on building-permit data made available b y the building
permit survey which the Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted in cooperation with the W ork Projects A d ­
ministration . Data were available for 118 cities for 1910 and for a progressively greater number of cities each
successive year, reaching a total of 229 cities in 1920. Since that time, all 257 cities have reported directly to
the Bureau.

* Data not available.
* Revised.

Single-family houses formed a higher proportion of the new dwe1
!ings in the 257 cities in 1941 than in any other year of active building
shown in table 6. Units in both 2-family and multifamily buildings
decreased both absolutely and relatively between 1940 and 1941, the
proportion of units in multifamily buildings being lower in 1941 than
in any of the previous 20 years except 1932 when there was little
residential construction of any kind.

with more than half a million inhabitants than in smaller cities is
shown by figures in table 7. However, even in these large cities the
proportion of units in multifamily buildings was unusually low in

The average permit valuation tor each type of dwelling unit shown
in table 8 increased between 1940 and 1941. Nevertheless, the 1941
averages were below those for the majority of the years in the previous
two decades. In interpreting these averages it should be noted that
they do not represent fluctuations in the cost of building identical
units of housing, but show fluctuations in the estimated construction
costs of those units for which permits were issued. The comparatively
small increase in average permit valuations, in view of the increases in
material and labor costs in 1941 previously noted, is partially ex­
plained by two factors. The Federal Government was building large
numbers of low-cost homes for war workers, and had also issued an
order in the early fall of 1941 which set a maximum selling price of
$6,000 per dwelling unit as one condition for granting priorities
assistance to private builders.

Indexes o f Building C on stru ction , 1929 to 1941
Total building-permit valuations in all reporting cities reached a
higher level in 1941 than in any year since 1929. Unusually high
permit valuations for new residences were primarily responsible for
making 1941 an outstanding construction year in the reporting cities,
but smaller gains were shown in permit valuations for both other
classes of construction included in table 9.3

Estimated N ew D w ellin g U nits in N onfarm A reas
In addition to publishing the number of dwelling units for which
permits were issued in the sample of reporting cities, the Bureau uses
the building-permit reports as the basis for estimating the number of
new dwelling units in the entire nonfarm area of the United States.
The Bureau’s estimates, which were started in 1936, are a continuation
of the series established by the National Bureau of Economic Research,
which also based its work on building-permit data.
A special study of the preliminary results of the 1940 Census of
Housing recently revealed that the true level of residential construction
during the 1930’s had been understated in estimates published by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics and National Bureau of Economic Re­
search.4 The 1930-39 estimates were accordingly revised, and the
1940 and 1941 estimates are consistent with the new level indicated
for the previous years. All of these estimates, which are included in
table 10 and the chart on page 18, are preliminary and will undergo
further analysis when the complete data of the 1940 census become
available.

GENERAL trends in building construction

19

Estimates of residential construction presented here are intended to
cover all such activity within the “ nonfarm area” (all urban and rural
nonfarm places). The urban designation is applied to all incorporated
places with 1940 population of 2,500 or greater, and also, by special
rule, to a small number of unincorporated civil divisions. In the
class of rural nonfarm construction is placed all activity for nonagricultural use in unincorporated areas and in incorporated places of
less than 2,500 population. Thus, whereas urban construction
actually corresponds to a definite area, rural nonfarm construction
depends for its classification upon the intended use of the individual
buildings.
Since building permits are issued when construction work is about
to start, estimates derived from permits represent future dwellingunit capacity of buildings upon which construction work was started
in the period specified. No attempt is made here to estimate the
number of family accommodations gained by alterations and con­
versions or those lost by demolitions.
Trend in Residential Construction, 1920 to 1941
With 715,000 new dwelling units provided for nonfarm families,
residential construction during 1941 continued its upward climb of
the last 8 years. The 1941 total was more than twice the annual
average of 300,000 units for the preceding decade, and was also
slightly more than the 703,000 average for the decade of the 1920,s.
The last year of greater activity was 1928, when new family accom­
modations totaled 753,000 units. From that point it dropped to
509,000 in 1929 and then fell to a depression low of 93,000 units in 1933.

than the earlier estimates, caution should be exercised in comparing years in different sections of the series.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION,

1941

The recovery in residential construction is even more marked when
1-family dwellings alone are considered. Altogether, the construction
of 613,000 new 1-family houses, or 86 percent of the new?nonfarm
units, was begun in 1941, which represented an all-time high point.
Two-family and apartment units declined from 1940 to 1941, and the
output of these types in 1941 was less than one-third of the number
provided in the most active years of the 1920's.
Comparison by Type o f Dwelling, 1940 and 1941

The 715,000 new family-dwelling units upon which construction was
started in nonfarm areas during 1941 represented an increase of 19
percent over the 603,000 total for the preceding year. The increase
of 26 percent in the number of new 1-family homes from 1940 to 1941
was responsible for the gain in total residential construction, despite
declines of 8 and 14 percent, respectively, in the number of 2-family
and multifamily units shown in table 11.
The 2-family and multifamily units included in the 1940 and 1941
estimates were, as usual, heavily concentrated in the larger cities.
Forty-seven percent of all 2-family units and 70 percent of all multi­
family units in nonfarm areas were in cities of over 100,000 popula­
tion, although construction of units of all types in these cities ac­
counted for only 29 percent of the nonfarm totals for both years.
Urban places of less than 100,000 population accounted for 34 per­
cent of the nonfarm totals for the 2 years and rural nonfarm areas
for the remaining 37 percent.
The recent census revealed a disproportionate growth in population
of smaller cities and rural places as compared with large urban centers.
When the trends in construction of new dwelling units are examined
with reference to centers of population of different size, the related
tendency towards dispersion of new housing is found to have con­
tinued through 1941. Of the new units provided during 1941, 39 per
cent were in rural nonfarm areas as compared with 34 percent during
1940. No year previous to 1941 had as large a number of new rural
nonfarm dwelling units.

GENERAL TRENDS IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

Within the urban area, cities of different size classification did
not share proportionately in the increase from 1940 to 141. Cities
of over 25,000 population provided 5 percent more new units in 1941
than during the previous year, as compared with a 23-percent rise in
the smaller urban places. These percentage changes were considerably
affected by the location of Federally financed housing projects, which
showed an even greater trend toward location in smaller cities and
rural places than did privately financed housing.
Geographic location had considerable influence upon the type of
dwelling unit built (table 12). In the Middle Atlantic section, which
had the highest number of new multifamily units in both 1940 and
1941, this type comprised 34 and 16 percent of the respective totals.
This is to a great extent explained by the concentration of large cities
in the Middle Atlantic area. The South Atlantic and Pacific States
also had large numbers of multiple units, this classification accounting
for 13 and 12 percent of the respective area totals for 1941. Privately
financed apartment construction showed a loss more than large enough
to account for the decrease in the United States multifamily totals.
In New York City alone, applications filed for apartment units dropped
from a total of 19,800 units in 1940 to 13,400 units in 1941.

Comparison by Source of Funds, l')40 and 1941

Projects financed with public funds during 1941 provided accommo­
dations for 95,740 families, or 13 percent of the nonfarm total, as
compared with 73,029 units, or 10 percent of the total, during 1940.
Included in publicly financed projects during 1940 and 1941 were
32,086 and 88,715 units, respectively, spe< fically designated for
families of war workers and military personnel.
Among the privately financed units, the ^-family group showed
a gain of 11 percent from 1940 to 1941, and the multifamily group, 3
percent. In publicly financed projects, the number of 1-family units
more than doubled, but the 2-family and apartment units in 1941 were
only about half as great as in 1940.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION,

1941

1940 and 1941. The large increases in smaller places and in rural non­
farm areas were due to the great number of war housing projects built
around army camps, powder plants, and similar war establishments
located in sparsely populated sections of the country where the new
plant or camp virtually meant the creation of a new community.
For privately financed units alone, cities of over 25,000 population
experienced a 10-percent rise in new dwelling units as compared with
a 13-percent increase for smaller urban places.

The South Atlantic States received the most Federal assistance in
providing housing, because this section includes so many areas with
vital war-industry and military and naval concentrations. During
1941 publicly financed housing projects in this area were planned to
accommodate 21,680 families, a small increase over the corresponding
19,233 units in 1940. The second largest concentration of publicly
financed units in 1941, shown in table 14, was in the Middle Atlantic
States where 19,519 units were under construction. In terms of
privately financed construction alone, the East North Central and
West South Central States showed the largest percentage gain in 1941
over 1940. The New England and East South Central States were
next in order.

GENERAL TRENDS IN BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

As a step to encourage private building for war workers, Congress
in March 1941 added title VI to the National Housing Act governing
the operations of the Federal Housing Administration. This amend­
ment allowed liberal insurance terms to builders who would provide
low-cost housing in specific defense areas so designated by the Presi­
dent at the recommendation of the Defense Housing Coordinator. By
the end of 1941 mortgages covering 42,000 homes had been accepted
for insurance under title VI by the Federal Housing Administration.
The greater part of F. H. A.-insured mortgages on new houses,
however, was still carried under the provision of title II of the National
Housing Act, with an additional small number under title I. Under
these provisions, 183,000 new homes were accepted for insurance
during 1941 as compared with 177,000 during 1940. The Federal
Housing Administration estimates that of the new homes thus insured
during 1941, 84 percent were located within war-production areas.
The second quarter of 1941 saw more new housing begun than
any other quarter of 1940 or 1941. Although the number of publicly
financed units in this quarter was exceptionally large, reaching a total
of 32,258, the number privately financed was still 25 percent above the
comparable period of 1940 (table 15). From the high point in the
second quarter of 1941 the number of privately financed units started
showed but a small decrease of 4 percent in the third quarter. There
was a sharp decline from the third to the fourth quarter, which is for
the most part explained by the normal seasonal tendencies.
In 1941 this seasonal decline was accentuated by the growing
shortages of strategic materials, influencing some builders against
starting new construction until governmental policy and the supply
situation ‘became clarified. However, because of the much higher
rate of building during 1941 as compared with 1940, even a 33-percent decline in private building from the previous quarter left the
fourth quarter of 1941 at approximately the same level as the cor­
responding period of 1940.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION, 1 9 4 1

The discussion of publicly financed housing has thus far been con­
cerned with stationary types of units within continental United States.
Demountable units have been included in the totals presented but
portable units and trailers were omitted. During 1941, 766 portable
dwelling units were provided in defense areas by the Farm Security
Administration with funds provided under Public Act No. 9, 77th
Congress. Under the terms of the same law, the Farm Security
Administration in 1941 provided 4,859 trailer units and dormitories
to accommodate 7,390 persons. Dormitories under construction by
other agencies were to house an additional group of 1,752 persons.
Estimated Permit Valuations

The permit valuation of the 715,000 new units upon which con­
struction was started in nonfarm areas during 1941 is estimated at
$2,502,818,000. This included $2,180,805,000 for privately financed
units and $322,013,000 for those in public projects. Of the total valua­
tion, $2,219,094,000 (89 percent) was for 1-family dwellings, $86,526,000 (3 percent) for 2-family houses, and $197,198,000 (8 percent) for
apartments. During 1940 the 603,000 new nonfarm units had an
estimated permit valuation of $2,021,363,000, of which $227,289,000
was for public projects.
Because of the nature of the cost estimates given by builders when
they apply for permits, these permit valuations commonly understate
actual costs. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has been studying the
degree of this understatement and has released preliminary results of
this study, which indicate that costs of 1-family houses average 15.5
percent more than the valuations entered on the permit records.
Further results of this study may modify this conclusion and may also
show a somewhat different relationship between costs and permit
valuation of 2-family and apartment buildings. In the absence of more
complete data, permit valuations of privately financed residential con­
struction, shown in table 16, should be increased 15.5 percent to
yield estimated construction costs. Contract awards for projects
publicly financed are reported directly to the Bureau. Since the latter
approximate construction costs, no adjustment of public totals is
necessary. With those considerations in mind, construction of the
715,000 new units in 1941 and of the 603,000 in 1940 may be said to
involve expenditures of approximately $2,840,000,000 and $2,300,000,000, respectively.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION,

1941

B uilding C onstru ction in 2,449 Cities
The number of cities which have cooperated with the Bureau of
Labor Statistics by reporting building-permit data has increased
steadily since 1921. Data in tables 17 to 26, inclusive, are based on
information received from 2,449 identical cities with populations of
1.000 persons or more which reported to the Bureau in both 1940 and
1941. Reports were received from all cities with a population of
50.000 or more; the completeness of the coverage for the remaining
cities decreases directly with the size of the city.
The number of reporting cities and their total populations are dis­
tributed geographically and by size of city, on the basis of the 1940
census, as follows:

Summary for A ll Building Construction

Permits issued in the 2,449 reporting cities during 1941 covered
almost 926,000 buildings of all types for which the permit valuations
exceeded $3,000,000,000. The 1941 figures represented increases of
8.1 and 13.5 percent, respectively, over the 1940 volume. Valuations
for both Federal and non-Federal building construction increased
during 1941, but the greater gains were in the Federal war building
program. Federal contract values thus formed 27 percent of total
permit valuations in 1941, as contrasted with 24 percent in the
previous year. Since permit valuations commonly understate the
actual construction cost, the comparison with Federal contract values
somewhat overemphasizes the relative importance of Federal building
in these cities.
Permit valuations for new residential construction increased 12.5
percent between 1940 and 1941, and accounted for approximately
half of the permit valuations in both years. As can be seen from
table 17, single-family dwellings were by far the most important type
of residential construction and were responsible for most of the increase
in new residential construction between 1940 and 1941. Permit
valuation of units in 2-family houses and in flats and other multi­
family buildings decreased during 1941.
In addition to family housekeeping units, the figures for residential
construction include hotels, lodging houses, and such miscellaneous
living quarters as dormitories and clubs. Hotels formed the only
category of nonhousekeeping residential buildings for which permit

valuations increased in 1941, and the permit issued for the new Statler
Hotel in Washington, D. C., contributed materially to this rise.

Nonresidential buildings______ _____

Permit valuations for nonresidential construction increased more
than those for residential buildings between 1940 and 1941— 16.4
percent as contrasted with 12.5 percent. The effect of the Federal
war construction program was more pronounced in the figures for
nonresidential than for residential construction, accounting for over
half of the nonresidential permit valuations in 1941. The major
gains in 1941 were in permit valuations for new factory buildings and
for public works and utilities, both of which were heavily weighted
with Federal contracts. Although the number of public buildings
reported in 1941 was 25 percent greater than in 1940, there was a
slight decline in valuations. One factor contributing to this decrease
was the inclusion of large contracts for troop housing in 1940. Several
types of buildings on which Federal construction has little or no effect
had lower valuations in 1941 than in 1940. This group included
amusement buildings, service stations, institutional buildings, office
buildings (other than Federal), and schools and libraries.




28

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION, 1 9 4 1

Permit valuations for additions, alterations, and repairs increased
9 percent between 1940 and 1941, which was less than the gain reported
for either class of new construction shown in table 17. Work on
nonresidential buildings accounted for almost three-fifths of the
repairs and alterations in both years.
In the reporting cities privately financed housing showed greater
increases between 1940 and 1941 than public housing, measured either
in number of units or permit valuations. This was contrary to the
relationship shown on page 22 for the rural nonfarm area as a whole,
and is explained by the location of large public war housing projects
either outside the corporate limits of the reporting cities or in areas
which did not report to the Bureau. For the privately financed homes
shown in table 18, a 9-percent increase in the number of units was
accompanied by a 13-percent rise in permit valuations, while for the
publicly financed units the corresponding gains were 1 and 11 percent.
U. S. H. A. slum-clearance projects accounted for the bulk of the
public units in 1940. Most of these projects were located in large
cities where the apartment type of building predominated. The
effect of the shift to war-housing projects in 1941 is reflected in the
50-percent increase in single-family units at the same time that the
number of units in other types of buildings decreased 46 percent.

Comparison by Geographic Division

In all sections of the country except the West North Central States,
permit valuations increased between 1940 and 1941. The decrease in
this one area resulted from the sharp drop in Federal contracts for
nonresidential construction from almost $31,000,000 in 1940 to less
than $3,000,000 in 1941. Increases in permit valuations in other
areas shown in table 19 ranged from 7 percent in the Middle Atlantic
States to 72 percent in the Mountain States. The influence of Federal
contracts on the relative showing of the latter area is clear from table
20, which shows that Federal contracts for new nonresidential buildings.

1940

AND

1941

in the Mountain States were over 10 times as large in 1941 as in the
previous year. Most of this increase was in Denver and Salt Lake
City.
For the reporting cities as a whole the volume of new nonresidential
construction, as measured by permit valuations, was about equally
divided between Federal and non-Federal projects in 1941. For new
residential construction, however, there was over six times as much
non-Federal construction as Federal. Increases in non-Federal hous­
ing were reported in all sections of the country except the Middle
Atlantic States. Substantial gains in several cities in this area were
offset by losses in New York City.

In the Middle Atlantic and Mountain States there were small de­
creases in the number of new dwelling units for which permits were
issued in 1941 as compared with 1940. In the remaining seven re­
gions shown in table 22, the gains ranged from 1 percent in the West
South Central States to 26 percent in New England. Privately
financed units in New England increased 9 percent, but the major
part of the improvement in this area resulted from public projects
necessitated by the influx of war workers into New England. On the
other hand, the small increases in the East and West South Central
States resulted from a greater volume of privately financed housing
since there was a substantial decline in the number of units in public
projects.

Detail for Individual Cities

Three measures of the volume of building construction in each of
the 2,449 cities which reported building-permit data in 1940 and
1941 are given in table 23. The number and permit valuations of
buildings for which permits were issued are shown for each class of
construction. In addition, the number of dwelling units contained
in new housekeeping residential buildings is included. The cities
are listed alphabetically within each State and the States are grouped
to correspond with the geographic divisions shown in tables 19 through

22.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION,

1941

Comparison by Size of City

Except for a negligible decrease in cities with populations of 25,000
to 50,000 persons, increases in permit valuations in 1941 were general
throughout the groups of cities shown in table 24. The gains ranged
from 4 percent in the largest cities to 32 percent in places with 2,500
to 5,000 inhabitants.

On a per capita basis, cities in the group of 50,000 to 100,000 popu­
lation had the highest volume of permit valuations. This resulted
from the large amount of new nonresidential construction, since this
group of cities was among the lowest of the groups shown in table
25 in terms of the volume of new residential construction. Per capita
valuations for new residential construction were almost twice as great
in cities of 5,000 to 10,000 population as in cities with more than half
a million people where there was the lowest volume of such con­
struction.

1 Based on population figures shown on p. 26.

Cities with populations of less than 25,000 had greater increases in
1-family units, both publicly and privately financed, than the groups
of larger cities included in table 26. Since single-family houses formed
over three-fourths of the total in the reporting cities in 1941, the same
contrast between activity in large and small cities appeared in the
comparison for all types of units combined.

4 Includes multifamily dwellings with stores.

The smaller cities also had more new dwelling units in relation to
population than the larger cities in 1941. From the ratios shown
below it can be seen that while the differences among the eight popula­
tion groups were greater in 1941 than in 1940, in both years there was
the same tendency for more new units to be built in smaller places
than in the large cities.

CONSTRUCTION IN

1940

127

AND 1 9 4 1

C onstru ction from Public Funds
In addition to reports on the values of contracts awarded for build­
ing construction by various public agencies, the Bureau collects
information on other types of publicly financed construction which is
summarized in the tables which follow.
The value of all contracts awarded or force-account work started
by the Federal Government for construction projects in 1940 and 1941
is shown in table 26. This tabulation covers Federal construction
both inside and outside the continental United States.
The total volume of Federal construction started in 1941 was less
than 5 percent higher than in 1940, but there were marked shifts in
the amounts reported for the different types of projects shown in
table 27. Contracts awarded by the Maritime Commission for cargo
vessels increased sharply. Offsetting this was a large reduction in
contracts for naval vessels, so that the total for ship construction and
repairs in 1941 was far below the 1940 figure. Decreases occurred in
electrification and hydroelectric-power projects and in forestry and
reclamation projects. There were substantial increases in all other
types of projects in this table, the largest gains being for airports and
building construction. Although Federal building projects in the
reporting cities increased between 1940 and 1941, much greater
increases occurred outside the reporting cities; Federally financed
buildings inside the reporting cities formed only about one-fourth of
the total in 1941 as contrasted with more than two-fifths of the 1940
total.

Nearly 98 percent of the valuations on Federal construction con­
tracts awarded in 1941 were for projects to be financed with regular
Federal appropriations. The remainder was to be financed from
funds appropriated for Public Works Administration and Work
Projects Administration projects, which in 1934 and 1935 had ac­
counted for approximately 80 to 90 percent of the value of all
Federal construction.
In addition to construction undertaken by Federal agencies with
W. P. A. funds, which is included in table 27, the Work Projects
Administration operated other construction projects in cooperation
with State and local governments. The volume of such construction
decreased between 1940 and 1941. Larger amounts were reported
for construction of airports, but decreases occurred in all other
types of projects shown in table 28.

The value of awards for public buildings financed wholly by State
governments was nearly 40 percent less in 1941 than in the previous
year. The five sections of the country with the largest volume in
1940 all had substantial reductions in 1941. Comparatively small
increases were reported in the remaining geographic divisions included
in table 29.
Highway construction is a much more important factor in State
construction activities than public buildings, and there was a 2-percent
increase in awards for highways during 1941. The gains were con­
fined to six of the nine geographic regions, however, with losses
reported by the New England, East North Central, and South Atlantic
States.

The Bureau also received reports on the value of street paving for
which contracts were awarded or force-account work was started in
51 cities in the population class of 150,000 and over. The number of
these cities starting jobs each month in 1940 and 1941, and the value
of the jobs, are presented in table 30. The total volume of this work
was about the same in both years.
