L abor:

I have the honor to transmit herewith a statistical report showing trends in
construction expenditures, employment, and volume in the United States with
special reference to building construction and emphasis on activities in 1942 and
1943. This report was prepared under the general direction of Herman B . Byer,
Chief of the Bureau’s Division of Construction and Public Employment. The
estimates and analysis of total construction expenditures and employment were
prepared under the direction of Henry F. Haase, and tabulation of buildingconstruction data was carried on under the supervision of George Schumm, who
also prepared the accompanying text. Edward M . Gordon directed the tabula­
tion of Federal construction contracts and analyzed the results.

Construction Industry in the United States
The construction industry is made up principally of general con­
tractors, special-trade contractors, and builders. General contractors
construct all or the major part of buildings and other structures on
contract for owners. They sublet part of the work to special-trade
contractors and usually execute the work of one or more major
trades themselves. Their field of operations is divided into buildings,
highways, and heavy construction, with most contractors engaging
in only one of these divisions. Special-trade contractors perform
the work of a single trade (or two or more related trades such as
roofing and sheet-metal work) on buildings and other structures.
This work is done for the general contractors in some cases, and in
other cases directly for the owners. Builders construct buildings
(usually residential) on their own account, for sale or for investment,
and assume the coordinating responsibilities of general contractors
on such projects.
Reliable statistics of construction activity, where the data relate
to the period of actual expenditures rather than to the period in which
the contract was let or the building permit issued, date from 1915.
The available figures show that the industry is characterized by
extreme year-to-year fluctuations which tend to follow closely in
pattern the movements in the value of the gross national product.
Expenditures for construction are high when the value of the total
national product and the levels of real income are also high, thus
encouraging expenditures not only for the expansion of industrial
and commercial facilities and for new housing, but also for utilities,
highways, and other works and structures contributing to the general
welfare. Conversely, when real income and production are low,
construction activity declines and in fact descends to levels that are
relatively lower than those of agricultural production and the manu­
facture of consumers’ goods.

Trend of Construction Expenditures, 1 9 1 5 -4 3
During the period 1915-43 construction expenditures fluctuated
from about 2% billion dollars in the depression year of 1933 to a peak
of 13K billion dollars reached in 1942, the first year of World War II.
Thus, at the height of construction activity in 1942 expenditures for
construction were over five times those at the depths of the depression
in 1933. In contrast, though the national product also varied the
most between these two years, in 1942 it was only slightly less than
three times the figure for 1933, 152 billion as compared with 55 billion
dollars.

Private versus P ublic Construction Expenditures

Expenditures for private construction, except for the war years of
1917 through 1919, comprised approximately 80 percent of all expendi­
tures from 1915 through 1929. Thereafter until 1932 expenditures
for private work progressively made up a smaller part of the total,
and in 1932 and 1933 accounted for only half. Between 1934 and
1940, however, privately financed construction became increasingly
more important in the total, although much less so than in the years
prior to 1930. Extensive Federal expenditures for useful public
works during this period were responsible for the greater relative
importance of public expenditures as compared with the earlier period.
By 1940 expenditures on private work were accounting for twothirds of all construction expenditures, but in 1941 this proportion
began to decrease and in 1942 and 1943— war years which saw rapid
expansion in the volume of publicly financed industrial and naval
facilities together with contraction of all types of private construc­
tion— private work accounted for only one-fourth of all construction
expenditures.
Private Construction Expenditures

Always acutely responsive to economic conditions, private con­
struction expenditures reached a peak of almost 9 billion dollars in
1926, or more than six times the expenditures in 1933 when they were
at their lowest level in the last three decades. The dollar volume of
private work increased practically every year between 1918 and
1926 and, beginning with 1925 and extending through 1929, more
than 8 billion d o lla r worth of private construction was placed each
year. Volume fell off rapidly after 1929 and has never again ap­
proached the levels of the late twenties. An upward trend beginning
in 1934 was reversed in 1942 when, under the wartime pressure of
manpower and material shortages, all nonessential construction
activity was halted.1
Nonfarm residential building usually accounts for approximately
half of all private construction activity, the only exceptions since
1915 being during and immediately following the first World War
and in the early thirties when this type of work accounted for less than
40 percent of the total. Average annual expenditures for the 29-year
period were over 2.1 billion dollars and represented 45 percent of all
private expenditures. Peak activity occurred in 1925 and 1926
when over 4% billion dollars was spent annually for private nonfarm
housing, or 11 times the low point of 1933, when only slightly over
400 minion dollars was expended.
Over one-quarter of the expenditures between 1915 and 1943 for
privately financed construction went for nonresidential structures in
nonfarm areas. This class of construction is comprised chiefly of
commercial and industrial buildings, but also includes religious,
private educational, and social buildings as well as privately owned
utility buildings. Expenditures for this type of work reached their
peak of 2.8 billion dollars in 1929, somewhat later than the peak for
residential construction.
1 Conservation Order No. L-41, issued by the War Production Board and effective April 9,1942,was de­
signed to conserve scarce materials “ by allocating them to essential uses and restricting their use in nonessential construction.”

1 Unless otherwise stated estimates include expenditures for new construction, and major additions and
alterations, but exclude expenditures for repairs, maintenance, and work-relief construction. Estimates
from 1915 through 1938, except for farm construction, are from Bureau of Foreign and Domestic Commerce
Series “ Construction Activity in Continental United States.”
2 Data for 1929 and subsequent years have been adjusted to include repair work, for which building per­
mits are generally issued.
2 Farm construction from 1915 through 1941 estimated by Bureau of Agricultural Economics, U. S. De­
partment of Agriculture; includes expenditures for maintenance work.
4 Mainly river, harbor, flood-control, reclamation, and power projects.
* Includes water supply, sewage disposal, and miscellaneous public-service enterprises.

Expenditures for commercial buildings in 1929 were close to the
1927 peak of over l){ billion dollars while construction of industrial
buildings in 1929 amounted to almost 800 million dollars, more than
in any year since 1920. Fluctuations in the annual expenditures for
nonresidential buildings have been less extreme than for residential
buildings. The smallest annual total, 408 million dollars in 1943,
was about a seventh of the peak, as compared to one-eleventh for
residential buildings.
Construction by privately owned public utilities, except for build­
ings, constituted the third largest class of construction expenditures,
accounting for 18 percent of the private total between 1915 and 1943.
These expenditures reached their peak of 1.6 billion dollars in 1929,
the same year as for nonresidential building, and then remained close




5
to the peak through 1930 when all other classes of construction were
falling sharply. By 1933, however, expenditures were at a low of
245 million dollars and have not since exceeded 800 million dollars.
Expenditures for farm construction, least important of the 4 classes
of private construction in point of dollar volume, were greatest
during the war and post-war farm boom of 1917-20, when farm con­
struction expenditures averaged 814 million dollars annually. Only
once since that time, in 1941, has the annual volume exceeded 700
million dollars. On the other hand, the annual volume fell below
400 million dollars only during the early thirties and in 1943.
P ublic Construction Expenditures

During all except war years, expenditures for publicly financed
construction have fluctuated within much narrower limits than those
for private construction. In 1933, the year of least activity since 1916,
public construction expenditures aggregated 1.2 billion dollars, or almost
half of the peacetime peak of 2.8 billion dollars. Public expenditures
tripled between 1916 and 1918 during World War I, [and in 1942
during World War II expenditures reached 4 times the 1940 total,
or 10.4 billion dollars.
Highway construction normally has accounted for a larger part of
the public total than any of the other classes, varying from somewhat
more than half during most of the twenties to about a third in the
late thirties. Annual expenditures exceeded a billion dollars each
year between 1925 and 1931, approaching 1){ billion dollars in 1930.
Since 1931, however, the volume ranged from 600 to slightly over
900 million dollars annually until 1943 when because of the war the
total declined to about 400 million dollars.
During war periods, military and naval construction, normally
unimportant, overshadows all other classes of public construction.
In 1918, military and naval construction aggregated 1.6 billion
dollars, well over two-thirds of the public total. In 1942, expenditures
totaled 5 billion dollars or almost half of the public total. The de­
creased relative importance of direct military and naval construction
in the current war as compared to World War I is explained by the
fact that in 1917-18 comparatively little was spent for the expansion
of industrial facilities except shipyards, while in 1941-43 expenditures
for such expansion approached the volume for direct military and
naval construction. In 1942, public nonresidential building construc­
tion cost 3.6 billion dollars or about six times the average amount
spent annually during the late twenties and late thirties when expend­
itures were at their previous peaks.
As with nonresidential building, very small public expenditures
were made during World War I for residential construction, 42 million
dollars in all. In comparison, under the slum clearance program of
the late thirties, 263 million dollars was spent for residential buildings
through 1939; since that time over a span of only 4 years 1.8 billion
dollars has been spent, almost entirely for war housing.
Public construction, other than the types already discussed, con­
sisting mainly of river, harbor, and flood control; reclamation; and
power projects carried on by the Federal Government, has been grow­
ing in volume since 1915. In 1920, expenditures for this kind of work
totaled 56 million dollars, but by 1930 they had more than doubled,




6
reaching 120 million dollars, and since 1940 have aggregated about
400 million dollars annually. Even during the early depression years
of the thirties, before the establishment of the Public Works Admin­
istration, when practically all other types of construction were being
curtailed, expenditures for this class increased in volume each year.
State and local expenditures for construction, such as water and
sewerage projects and other public services, have averaged over 250
million dollars annually for the last 29 years, ranging from 113 million
dollars in 1943 to 505 million dollars in 1927.

Employment in the Construction Industry, 1929—
43
Approximately 1% million workers were released from construction
work between August 1942 and December 1943. This major with­
drawal from the construction industry was the result of completion
of the major portion of the war construction programs and tight
Government control over materials for nonwar projects. During the
16-month period construction employment decreased by nearly twothirds from 2,579,000 to 905,000. Public construction employment
declined from its peak of nearly 2 million workers in August 1942 to
842.000 a year later and by the end of 1943 amounted only to some­
what over half a million. Employment on private projects started to
decrease in the middle of 1941, dropping from about 1,800,000 to
629.000 by August 1942 when public employment was at its height.
It then fell off to only 384,000 by December 1943.
Construction employment is an exaggerated barometer of the trend
in the national economy, for in prosperous peacetime years it com­
prises a much greater proportion of total nonagricultural employment
than in depression years, showing that the industry is affected so
directly by good or bad times that employment increases or falls off
proportionately more than in industry as a whole.
Employment on the site of construction projects was over 8 per­
cent of the total estimated nonagricultural employment of 31.1
millions in 1929. After this boom year the proportion of site con­
struction employment to total nonagricultural employment dropped
each year to an average of 4.5 percent in the depression years 1933-35.
Construction employment rose again in importance in the total non­
agricultural labor force beginning with 1936, so that between 1936
and 1940 construction site workers comprised about 6 percent of all
nonagricultural workers and in 1941, 6.9 percent. Total industrial
employment rose so steeply in 1942, however, that construction this
time did not keep pace in spite of the fact that the industry was ex­
periencing its most prosperous year in at least three decades. Site
construction workers in 1942 accounted for but 5.8 percent of all the
nonagricultural workers employed. Although times were good, re­
straints on nonessential construction activity instituted in 1942 and
completion of the major part of the war construction program caused
employment in the construction industry to fall off so heavily in 1943
as to comprise in that year only 3.4 percent of the nonagricultural
employed labor force.

Employment as presented covers wage earners, salaried employees, and special-trade contractors
actively engaged in construction work. Includes new construction and major additions, alterations and
repairs. Excludes workers engaged on maintenance.

Throughout the 15-year period 1929-43 the construction industry
approached a peak of about 2% million workers in only 2 years—
1929 and 1941. Employment in the industry was at its lowest in
1933 when somewhat less than a million workers were employed.
Though the seasonality characteristic, especially of private construc­
tion activity, leads to extensive accessions and lay-offs within the
year, the industry has probably never experienced such sweeping
employment cut-backs as occurred between 1942 and 1943. The
tremendous upsurge and downsweep in employment in the brief 3year period 1941-43 reveals strikingly the capacity and flexibility of
the construction industry.
In the peacetime period of the last 15 years private construction
activity has ordinarily claimed a greater proportion of the workers
than public construction except in time of depression. In the war
years 1942 and 1943, however, public construction projects employed
well over two-thirds of all the workers. Only in 1933 and 1934 was
this situation even approached within the period under consideration,
when 53 percent of construction employees were on public works.

i Employment as presented covers wage earners, salaried employees, and special-trade contractors ac­
tively engaged in construction work. Includes new construction and major additions, alterations, and

P ublic Construction Em ploym ent

Average*annual employment on public construction projects from
1929 through 1940 showed relatively little fluctuation, the lowest
figure, 511,000, occurring in 1929 and the highest, 843,000, in 1936.
The level of construction employment was maintained through the
depression and recovery years by Public Works Administration proj­
ects which were responsible for most of the public construction em­
ployment for the 6 years 1933 through 1938. In 1939, also, the school
or educational building construction program sponsored by PWA
gave employment to a large portion of construction workers. Though
public construction employment was lower than usual early in 1940
because of curtailment of PWA activities, passage of the Selective
Service Act, resulting in the necessity for building camps and other
military facilities, increased employment by 472,000 between January
and the following December, a movement contrary to normal seasonal
trends.
The increase in public construction employment continued, subject
to slight monthly fluctuations, through September 1941 to the hereto­
fore unprecedented level of 1,200,000 persons. Though a gradual
monthly decline followed, the average of 1,023,000 workers on public
construction projects in 1941 was 72 percent greater than in 1940.
Construction of shipways, housing, factories, and military facilities,
begun in 1941 and speeded up after the United States entered the war,
required even greater public construction employment in 1942.
Between February and August 954,000 persons were added, an average
monthly increment of 159,000 employees. The greatest addition in
one month was 266,000, an increase of 17 percent between June and
July 1942. After the 12-year peak of 1,950,000 reported for August
1942, the decline in employment was rapid and consistent during the




11
rest of 1942 and throughout 1943. In fact, the decrease in 1943 re­
leased an average of almost 86,000 persons per month. Average
employment on public construction for the year was 957,000 com­
pared with the unprecedented 1942 figure of 1,488,000. More than
90 percent of the publicly financed war construction program had been
completed by the end of 1943.
Private Construction Em ploym ent

Construction employment on private projects from 1929 through
1941 follows closely the business activity of the Nation. Employment
in the boom year of 1929 averaged nearly 2 million, falling off to a little
over one-fifth of this in 1933, the lowest year in the depression phase
of the business activity cycle. The 4 following years showed increased
employment each successive year, averaging 962,000 by 1937. The
recession year of 1938, however, saw a decline to 858,000. With
recovery and growing economic prosperity, average employment on
private construction projects rose steeply to 1,181,000 in 1939, and
then to 1,320,000 in 1940 and 1,423,000 in 1941. The high employ­
ment in 1929 was never attained, however, for late in 1941 control of
materials and restrictions on private projects were imposed to assure
materials and men for war production. Private construction em­
ployment then decreased sharply to an average of 726,000 workers in
1942, slightly over half the average for 1941. The decline of almost
50 percent to 381,000 in 1943 gave employment to 7 percent fewer
workers than in the depression year of 1933.
The best month for private construction employment in the years
for which monthly data are available, 1939 to 1943, was July 1941
when 1,799,000 persons were engaged on private construction projects.
This was over five times the employment in the worst month, March
1943, when the figure was 331,000. The decrease over this 20-month
interim totaled nearly 1% million workers, an average monthly decline
of 73,000.

During the 9-year period January 1935 to December 1943, contracts
were awarded and force-account work 3 was started in excess of 26
billion dollars on construction projects financed wholly or partially
from Federal funds. Of this amount about 15 billion dollars, consid­
erably more than half, was for nonresidential building construction;
the remainder, 11 billion dollars, was spent for such construction
projects as highways and roads, housing, airports, bridges, reclama­
tion, and water supply and sewerage systems, to mention but a few.
Four emergency or special construction programs were either in opera­
tion or introduced within the, 9-year period covered, in addition to
projects financed from regular Federal appropriations. The first and
largest of these was the Public Works Administration program started
2 This section was included in an article of the same title in the Monthly Labor Review for June 1944
(pp. 1309-1313).
2 Construction work by force account under a Federal agency is work conducted directly by that agency *
without benefit of contract. The workers are usually employed for a specific project at completion of which
their services may be terminated. Figures presented in this section of the bulletin relate to the value of
contracts awarded or force-account work started by Federal agencies. Figures covering actual expenditures
on all public worksr State and local as well as Federal, are given in the section “ Trend of construction
expenditures/2pp. 1 to 6.




12
in July 1933 and practically completed by December 1941. The next
largest was made up of other than work-relief projects operated by
other Federal agencies but financed from Work Projects Administra­
tion funds. This program was in effect during the period July 1935
to December 1941. The other two programs were the low-rent housing
projects under the United States Housing Authority, and the War
Public Works program begun in late 1941 and still in operation,
covering construction of schools, water systems, sewer systems, and.
various other types of facility needed in crowded war areas.

Trend 1935-43
Although there has always been some construction financed by
regular Federal appropriations, the PWA program started in July 1933
was the forerunner of large-scale Federal public works programs.
From 1935 to 1939 well over three-fifths of Federal construction award
values were for PWA and WPA projects. After extension of PWA
from funds made available by the Emergency Relief Appropriation
Act of 1935, and the inception of the WPA program financed from
the same act, contracts were awarded or force-account work started
in 1935 amounting to somewhat over 1% billion dollars, 87 percent of




13
the total for the year. The next year, with continuance of the PWA
and W PA programs, the value of Federal awards increased slightly,
from $1,478,000,000 to $1,543,000,000. Smaller PWA appropriations
and a reduction in amounts transferred from WPA funds to Federal
construction work in 1937, resulted in a drop in total Federal awards
of nearly half a billion dollars to $1,046,000,000, the lowest for any
year during the period 1935-43. Passage of the Public Works Ad­
ministration Act of 1938 and the start of the USHA program, however,
caused total awards to mount again in 1938 and remain steady in 1939.
The following 3 years witnessed the introduction of the “ Defense
Program” begun in June 1940, and the “ War Program” started after
the attack on Pearl Harbor. PWA and WPA were decreasing in
importance, but the “ Defense Program,” including the first canton­
ment camp project, pushed 1940 Federal construction awards to
$2,395,000,000, well over two-fifths higher than the figure for 1939.
With increased demands for military camps and posts, and expanded
construction of productive facilities, the total for 1941 rose abruptly
to $6,014,000,000, over 2% times that for the previous year. The
peak was reached in 1942 when the war construction program called
for contract awards for more than $7,814,000,000 or 30 percent of the
total for the entire 9-year period 1935-43. A sudden drop occurred the
following year, however, to a figure near the 1940 level because of
completion or near completion of many types of war construction
projects. Thus, in the 4-year defense and war period 1940-43, nearly
18% billion dollars worth of contracts were awarded, amounting to
72 percent of the 9-year total and 2% times the total for the 5 years
1935-39.
T ypes o f Projects Included in the Programs

Of all the types of projects undertaken, nonresidential building
construction was by far the most important. It accounted for wen
over one-half of the total value of contracts awarded and forceaccount work started on Federal construction in the years 1935-39.
The money was allocated for schools, hospitals, post offices, public
buildings of all types, and in connection with the war program, can­
tonment camps and barracks, hangars, magazines and storehouses,
and the many different types of industrial plants and factories required
to produce the supplies and equipment needed by a nation at war.
Next in importance in amount of contract awards was street, road,
and highway construction with $3,301,000,000. Well over fourfifths of this amount was administered under the Public Roads
Administration. Slum-clearance and low-rent housing projects ac­
counted for $1,832,000,000 in awards and were built largely under
jurisdiction of three agencies: The Housing Division of PWA, the
United States Housing Authority, and the Federal Public Housing
Authority, the latter having major responsibility for the large war­
housing program. Airport construction with awards of $1,453,000,000
and river, harbor, and flood-control projects with $1,116,000,000
were the only other types to reach the $1,000,000,000 mark in the
9-year period.
The reclamation work that was carried on under Federal contract
included large dams in the western States and the TYA in the South.

more than $275,000,000 appropriated in 1941, and construction of the
Mid town Hudson Tunnel of New York City were among the largest
heavy-engineering projects accomplished in the 9-year period. Mis­
cellaneous projects, including forestry and railroad construction and
repair, swelled the total, especially in 1942 when a great many
multiple-use war projects were begun, providing sometimes for as
many as five or six different types of facility.

Public W orks Adm inistration Program

Much credit for recovery of the construction industry after the low
days of 1930-32 should be given to the PWA program, which started
in July 1933 and continued until 1941 when virtually all projects were
completed. The various PWA program^4 furnished the funds with
which more than 34,500 projects located in every State and territory
were built. To complete them, contracts were awarded and forceaccount work was authorized in excess of $5,497,000,000. Though,
over the full 9-year period 1935-43, PWA projects accounted for but
14 percent of the awards for all Federal construction, in the first 5
years (1935-39) they made up nearly half of the total.
Nearly 40 percent of PWA contract values was for building con­
struction, including a new school in practically every community in
the country, post offices and court houses, hospitals, barracks and
other buildings on military posts, large government buildings, such as
the new Interior Department building in Washington, D. C., and
many others. Also included were the 51 slum-clearance projects
built by the Housing Division of PWA. Street, road, and highway
awards were made for such large projects as the “ Pennsylvania
Turnpike.” *
* The National Industry Kecovery Act of 1933 and 1934; the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act of
1935; the First Deficiency Appropriation of 1936; the Public Works Administration Extension Act of 1937;
and the Public Works Administration Appropriation Act of 1938.

W P A Projects Operated b y Federal A gencies J u ly 1935-D ecem ber
1941

Included in the total of 26 billion dollars for Federal construction
contract awards and force-account work started in 1935-43 is approxi­
mately $1,189,000,000 for construction projects financed from funds
made available through relief appropriations. Beginning in July
1935, funds were transferred from the Work Projects Administration
to various Federal agencies which awarded the contracts and super­
vised the construction. The projects thus provided for should not be
confused with work-relief projects operated directly by the WPA.
Valuations for such projects are not included within the scope of this
report.
During the 9-year period 1935-43 W PA projects operated by
Federal agencies accounted for 4.5 percent of the total Federal awards
but in the first 5 years (1935-39) they amounted to 15.3 percent and
in 1935, the heaviest year, these projects amounted to 27.1 percent.
Approximately one-third of the W PA construction values during
1935-43, or $374,170,000, were for street and road projects under the
jurisdiction of the Public Roads Administration. Grade-crossing
elimination comprised a large portion of this work, accounting for
$170,000,000 in contracts between July 1935 and 1937.

Building construction is the backbone of the construction industry.
Within the past 3 decades seldom has the proportion of buildingconstruction expenditures to the total fallen below one-half and in
most years the proportion was well over three-fifths. In years of
prosperity especially, building construction forms the major part
of all construction activity.
In order to show the trend in building construction over the years, the
Bureau of Labor Statistics prepares series showing the annual volume
of building construction since 1921 in 257 large cities.6
*
* Cities with populations of 25,000 or more, of which there were 412 in 1940. The 257 cities are marked
with an asterisk in Appendix B—Budding Construction in 2,707 Cities, by City 1942 and 1943 (p. 49).

i Preliminary.

Permit valuations in the 257 cities in 1943 were only half as great
as in 1942, but more than twice the figure for 1933 when building
slumped to the lowest point recorded in the nearly 2% decades for
which data are shown. Valuations were highest in the twenties, es­
pecially 1925 and 1926. Only in 1941 when wartime building was
in its stride has any year since 1929 even approached the level of
building construction between 1922 and 1929. The figure for 1943
is the lowest since 1935.
Ordinarily residential building exceeds nonresidential and in years
of prosperity it accounts for the major part of building activity. In
the depression years 1930-35, however, and in the war years 1941 and
1942, the reverse was true. In 1933 and 1934 new residential build­
ing valuations fell so low, in fact, as to be considerably below those
reported for additions, alterations, and repairs. In 1942 permit
valuations for nonresidential building were more than twice the
residential, largely because of extensive construction of military and
war industry facilities and rigid curtailment under Government order
of nonessential building.
All three classes of building construction shared in the sharp de­
crease in activity between 1942 and 1943, but additions, alterations,
and repairs least of all and nonresidential building the most, so that
again in 1943 the volume of residential building was larger than that
of nonresidential. The index of nonresidential construction in 1943
fell to one-third the index for 1942, 86 as compared with 262, the
greatest decline recorded for any of the three classes of building
construction within the 23 years under consideration.

among the five leading cities. In fact, between 1942 and 1943
permit valuations reported for New York City dropped 71 percent.
Chicago moved into first place in 1942 and 1943. Los Angeles,
second only to New York from 1936 to 1941, held second place in
1942 also, but in 1943 fell to third in favor of Detroit. San Francisco
appeared among the first five cities in 1943 after a lapse of 9 years,
and New Orleans, fifth leading city in 1943, held a place among the
five leading cities for the first time within the nearly 2% decades
under survey, largely because of the construction there of huge
aircraft facilities.

1 Population figures are actual enumerations for the 257 cities in the census years 1910,1920,1930, and 1940;
estimates for other years prior to 1940 are straight-line interpolations of Census figures while those sub­
sequent to 1940 are based on the 1940 Census since no further information is available.
2 Estimates for the period prior to 1921 are based on building permit data made available by the building
permit survey which the Bureau of Labor Statistics conducted in cooperation with the Work Projects
Administration. 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 1926. Since that time, all 257 cities have reported
directly to the Bureau.

N E W D W E LL IN G U NITS

Estimates of the number of new dwelling units placed under con­
struction in the 257 cities each year from 1910 to 1943 are presented in
table 9. This series provides a reliable measure of year-to-year fluc­
tuations in urban residential construction during the decade including
World War I. Since that time, however, the urban population of
the country has been growing at an increasingly greater rate than in
the 257 cities. Other biases inherent in fixed samples have also
affected this series; so it should be pointed out that the estimates of
new dwelling units provided in all urban and rural nonfarm areas
shown in table 18 are more reliable for indicating fluctuations in resi­
dential construction from 1920 on.
The number of new dwelling units placed under construction in the
257 cities was less by nearly two-fifths in 1942 than in 1941 and
decreased again in 1943 by almost one-fifth. Though more units
were built in 1942 and 1943 than in the depression of 1931-35, they
were fewer than in most of the other years in the 23-year period shown
and considerably less than in the mid-twenties, 1923-27, when an
average of 451,000 new family dwelling units were started each year.
During these years the rate of construction was so high that 111 new
houses were provided for each 10,000 of population each year as
compared with 6 in 1932 and 1933 and 47 in 1940.
Though the Bureau of Labor Statistics index of residential rents
moves within a narrower range than the index of new dwelling units
provided, it follows approximately the same cyclical phases except in
wartime. In 1942 and 1943, for example, the rent index rose and
remained high, whereas the index of new dwelling units decreased
sharply. This reflects the restrictions placed on nonessential building
during the war, though demand had risen, giving impetus to rents.
Doubtless, without rent control administered under the Office of Price
Administration and initiated with the Emergency Price Control Act
of 1942 the rent index for 1942 and 1943 would have been considerably
higher.
A larger proportion of single-family dwelling units, as compared
with 2-family and multifamily dwellings, were started in the 257 cities
in 1943 (73.8 percent) than in any previous year. The only years
that have approached 1943 in this respect are 1941 and 1932 when 70.5
and 71.3 percent respectively of new dwellings were 1-family houses.
Two-family houses, relatively popular in the mid-twenties, have since
lost favor and in 1942 and 1943 formed but 9 percent of the total of
new dwelling units. Multifamily houses made up about half the
units started in 1927, 1928, and 1929 but have since declined in im­
portance, so that 22 percent of all new dwellings were in multifamily
type structures in 1942 and only 17 percent in 1943.
Average permit valuations per new dwelling unit erected in the 257
cities have been steadily decreasing since 1939, and in 1943 reached
the lowest figure recorded within the 23-year period 1921-43. The
average valuations for 1-family dwellings decreased more sharply
in 1943 than those for 2-family and multifamily dwellings. This
was caused largely by the construction of many temporary row-type
single-family dwellings under the Federal Public Housing Authority.

The indexes show clearly the sharp decline in building in 1942 and
the even more headlong drop in 1943. In 1942 sharp decreases in
valuations for new residential building and for additions, alterations,
and repairs caused the index to fall in spite of the fact that valuations
for new nonresidential buildings rose because of heavy construction
of military and war industrial facilities. The industrial and mili­
tary program was virtually completed by the summer of 1942, so that
in 1943 the index for nonresidential building valuations declined heavi­
ly to well under a third of the figure for the previous year, the lowest




23
point since 1934. Though valuations for new residential building
and for additions, alterations, and repairs decreased also between
1942 and 1943, the low index for the total covering all types of build­
ing construction for the year was caused principally by the drop in
nonresidential construction.

Valuation o f Urban B uilding Construction 1942 and 1943

Figures on building construction shown in this section cover the
entire urban area of the United States, which, by Census definition,
includes all incorporated places with a population of 2,500 or more in
1940 and, by special rule, a small number of unincorporated civil
divisions. Valuation figures, the basis for statements concerning
volume, are derived from estimates of construction costs made by
prospective private builders when applying for permits to build and the
value of contracts awarded by Federal or State Governments. No
land costs are included. Unless otherwise indicated, only building
construction within the corporate limits of cities in urban areas is
included in the tabulations.

Data from building-permit records are collected by the Bureau of
Labor Statistics directly from local building officials in every State
except Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, North Caro­
lina, and Pennsylvania, where State departments of labor collect and
forward the data to the Bureau. Notifications of contracts awarded
for Federal and State projects, for which building permits are not
ordinarily required, are sent in directly by the agency awarding the
contract.
Reports of building permits were received in 1942 and 1943 from
cities containing between 80 and 85 percent of the urban population
of the country and provide the basis for estimating total number of
buildings and dwelling units and valuation of private urban build­
ing construction. The same data for Federally financed urban
building construction are compiled directly from notifications of
construction contracts awarded as furnished by Federal agencies.
COM PARISON B Y T Y P E OF B U ILD IN G

Permits issued and contracts awarded for new buildings as against
additions, alterations, and repairs, represented 81 percent of the total
valuation of all urban building construction started in 1943 as com­
pared to 90 percent in 1942. In the latter year, nonresidential con­
struction accounted for 62 percent of the new building total, principally
as a result of the Federally financed industrial facilities construction
program, then at its peak, and the action taken by the War Produc­
tion Board early in 1942 drastically curtailing the volume of privately
financed residential construction. By the end of the year, the buffi
of the industrial facilities program was under way. Consequently, in
1943 well over half of the new building valuation was for residential
building. Details on valuations by type of structure are shown in
table 13.
New residential buildings.— One-family dwellings accounted for
approximately three-fourths of the total valuations for new residen­
tial buildings in both 1942 and 1943; multifamily type structures made
up most of the remainder. Limitations on critical building materials
were reflected in proportionately greater declines in valuations for
privately financed 1-family dwellings than for 2-family or multi­
family structures and in reduced average valuations for both pri­
vately and Federally financed dwelling units.
New nonresidential buildings.— Nonresidential buildings accounted
for 36 percent of the valuation of all urban building construction in
1943 as against 56 percent in 1942. The valuation of nonresidential
buildings financed with Federal funds declined 72 percent from 1942,
whereas the non-Federally financed dropped only 52 percent. Though
three-fourths of the new nonresidential total for 1943 was Federally
financed, this was a very different picture from that in 1942 when the
value of Federal nonresidential building was almost six times that of
the non-Federal.
Factory building valuations in 1943 exceeded by far the total for
any other type of nonresidential building, aggregating $284,000,000,
or 61 percent of the 1943 new nonresidential total. Factory valua­
tions in 1943, however, were 70 percent less than in 1942 when the
industrial-facilities construction program was at its height and fac­




25
tories accounted for 64 percent of the new nonresidential total, or
$962,000,000.
In spite of an 81-percent decline between 1942 and 1943, public
buildings were second in total valuation to factory buildings in both
years. Virtually all of the buildings in this category were Federally
financed and a substantial proportion were constructed for temporary,
rather than permanent use. This was largely true, not only of pubnc
buildings, but of all Federally financed construction, except factories.
Valuation for institutional buildings totaled $39,000,000 in 1943, or
only 17 percent less than the $47,000,000 for 1942. This decline was
less than for any of the other principal types of nonresidential build­
ings, chiefly as a result of the hospital program of the Federal Works
Agency.
Stores and warehouses, fourth in rank according to valuations in
1943, were valued at $33,000,000, 22 percent less than in 1942. Public
works and utilities aggregated slightly less than $13,000,000 in 1943,
or less than a tenth of the 1942 total when this type of construction
ranked third among new nonresidential buildings. Increased recog­
nition of the importance of recreation facilities and community cen­
ters in crowded war production areas was reflected in the 50-percent
gain in valuations for amusement and recreation buildings, the only
major type of nonresidential construction showing greater valuation in
1943 than in 1942.
Additions , alterations, and repairs.— In marked contrast to the
sharp declines in new construction, the valuation in 1943 of all addi­
tions, alterations, and repairs taken together was only 14 percent
below the 1942 level. Separating residential additions, alterations,
and repairs from the nonresidential, however, it is significant that
there was a rise of 10 percent in valuation in the former between the
two years, as contrasted with a 29 percent decrease in the latter.
To some extent this reflects, on the one hand, increased emphasis by
the National Housing Agency on using existing structures for housing
in-migrant war workers, and, on the other, a reduction in large non­
residential additions in 1943.
COM PARISON B Y GEOGRAPHIC DIV ISIO N

In 1940, at the beginning of the Defense Program, new industrial
facilities were being constructed primarily in established industrial
centers. Later, new plants were more generally located in areas
previously far less important industrially. The construction of these
plants and of housing and community facilities for the workers has had
considerable influence in shifting the geographic distribution of urban
building construction since 1940.
Consequently, whereas all geographic divisions shared in the 52percent decline between 1942 and 1943 in the value of building permits
issued and contracts awarded, the decreases varied widely. The
smallest relative decline, 37 percent, occurred in the East North
Central and Pacific States, both of which are areas of greatly expanded
industrial activity. The largest declines occurred in the New England
and the Middle Atlantic States.

The volume of urban building construction started in the East North
Central States exceeded that of any other geographic division in both
1942 and 1943, accounting in those years for 23 and 30 percent, respec­
tively, of the United States total. New residential valuations for this
region were only 6 percent lower in 1943 than in 1942, whereas the
value of new nonresidential buildings declined 57 percent and addi­
tions, alterations, and repairs, 21 percent. The relatively minor de­
crease in residential valuations resulted from the $33,000,000 increase
in the value of Federal war housing projects put under contract in this
region during 1943. This increase is particularly significant when
compared with the decline for all regions of about $102,000,000 or
almost a third of the $313,000,000 Federal residential total for 1942.
The two cities having the largest total valuation in 1943 were both in
the East North Central States. Chicago ranked first with total valua­
tions of $74,000,000 and Detroit second with $51,000,000. These two
cities accounted for one-fourth of the regional total in 1942 and onethird in 1943.
The Pacific States, second to the East North Central in volume of
permits issued and contracts awarded in 1943, was one of the three
areas to show an increase (17 percent) between 1942 and 1943 in the
valuation of additions, alterations, and repairs. The valuation of
new residential construction declined 24 percent and of new non­
residential buildings, 58 percent. Federal residential construction
in the Pacific region totaled $82,600,000, higher than in any other
region and almost two-fifths of the United States total. Contributing
heavily to construction activity in the Pacific region were Maritime
Commission projects valued at $13,400,000 in Richmond, Calif.;
Federal Public Housing Authority projects for 4,240 family dwelling
units valued at $7,900,000 in San Diego, Calif.; 3,283 family dwelling
units at $7,500,000 in Portland, Oreg.; and 3,496 family dwelling
units valued at $7,000,000 in San Francisco. The largest single con­
tract for Federally financed construction in this area was for an oil
refinery in Richmond, Calif., valued at $13,515,000. Two cities of
the Pacific region, Los Angeles and San Francisco, ranked third and
fourth respectively in 1943 among all cities in the volume of building
started.
Permits issued and contracts awarded in the Middle Atlantic States
amounted to $177,000,000 during 1943, a decrease of 67 percent from
the 1942 total of $543,000,000. Outstanding Federal construction
awards in the Middle Atlantic area during 1943 included an aircraft
plant in Scranton, Pa., for $4,625,000 and a factory for aluminum
forgings and propellers in Cannonsburg, Pa., for $5,500,000. During
1943 the largest privately financed nonresidential permit in this area
was issued during September for a factory to cost $1,680,500 at Marcus
Hook, Pa. Philadelphia reported permits issued for private dwelling
units to cost $6,500,000, over a sixth of the total for the entire Middle
Atlantic area.

The South Atlantic States ranked fourth in volume of building
construction started during 1943. The $143,300,000 total in 1943 was
63 percent less than the total for 1942, principally because of a d6cline
of 79 percent in the value of Federally financed contracts awarded.
Federally financed construction placed under contract declined
sharply between 1942 and 1943 in such previously active centers as
Washington, D. C.; Baltimore, M d.; and Norfolk, Va. For example,
in Washington, Federal war housing projects valued at $23,582,000
were placed under contract during 1942, but in 1943 the value of such
projects decreased by 92 percent to only $1,861,000. The principal
exceptions in this region to the general decline in private residential
valuations were Jacksonville, Fla., where there was an increase from
$2,000,000 in 1942 to $4,800,000 in 1943 and Wilmington, Del.,
where the rise from $109,000 to $2,300,000 was considerably steeper.
The decline of 86 percent in the valuation of nonresidential building
construction was primarily responsible for the 72-percent decrease in
total valuations for the New England States between 1942 and 1943.
In the Mountain States, though new nonresidential building de­
creased 92 percent, residential building declined but 6 percent and
additions, alterations, and repairs increased 9 percent from 1942 to
1943. The greatest increase in additions, alterations, and repairs
(22 percent) occurred in the West South Central States. New
residential valuations in this area decreased 44 percent and new non­
residential valuations 47 percent. The largest single contract awarded
in this region in 1943 was for a Federally financed aircraft plant to be
built in New Orleans at a cost of $14,000,000. This accounted for over
half of the total for New Orleans for 1943 and resulted in this city’s
ranking fifth among all cities in the volume of building put under
construction.
COM PARISON B Y STATES

The location as well as the volume of building has been sharply
altered during the war period. Much of the direct military construc­
tion, i. e., army camps and many industrial facilities, have of necessity
been located outside of urban areas. However, the tendency toward
increased concentration of building construction in certain States
during 1943 is clearly shown in table 15. Almost half of the urban
building construction started during 1943 was located in five States—
California, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. In 1942, less
than 40 percent of the urban building was in these same States. In
both years California led in the value of building construction started,
accounting for 13 percent of the United States total in 1942 and 17
percent in 1943. Pennsylvania, which was second in volume in 1942,
fell to fifth place in 1943 and New York, which was third in 1942,
ranked sixth in 1943. Michigan, Illinois, and Ohio, in that order,
were fourth, fifth, and sixth in 1942 and second, third, and fourth
in 1943.
In 1943, 23, or almost half, of the States had less than $10,000,000
worth of urban building put under construction, as compared to only
11 such States the previous year.

COM PARISON B Y SIZE OF C IT Y

Building-construction valuations declined between 1942 and 1943
in all city-size groups shown in table 16 with the smallest drop, 41
percent, occurring in cities of 100,000 to 500,000 population and the
greatest, 59 percent, in the 50,000 to i00,000 population group. De­
creases in new nonresidential building valuations were substantially
greater than for new residential building valuations in all cases.
Valuations for additions, alterations, and repairs decreased even less
than for new residential buildings in each group, and actually increased
slightly in cities of 100,000 to 500,000 population. Decreases in total
Federal valuations exceeded those for non-Federal construction in
each size class. On the basis of 1940 populations, 1943 valuations per
capita were generally higher in the larger cities (except New York
City) than in the smaller cities. Per capita valuations in 1943 ranged
from a low of $12.40 for cities of 2,500 to 5,000 population to a high
o f $22.15 for cities of 100,000 to 500,000 population.
COM PARISON B Y MONTHS

The monthly volume of urban building construction for which
permits were issued or construction contracts were awarded during
1942 and 1943 reached its peak of $331,000,000 in April 1942, the same
month that the War Production Board issued Conservation Order
L-41 halting all nonessential construction. By August 1942, the
volume was about half of the April peak and since the early part of
1943 has remained almost constant at slightly over $100,000,000 a
month. Residential construction volume varied from $126,000,000
in February 1942 to about one-third of this amount in September 1943.
Fluctuations in the volume of nonresidential building were more
marked, with monthly totals ranging from a peak of $226,000,000 in
July 1942 to $29,000,000 in August 1943. The value of additions,
alterations, and repairs declined somewhat but did not drop as sharply
in 1942 after the restrictions of L-41 were imposed as did valuations
for new buildings. Since January 1943, the volume of this type of
work has in fact been increasing and during the last half of 1943 was
at about the mid-1942 level.
The relative importance of the Federal war construction program in
the monthly volume of urban building construction started was
considerably less in 1943 than in 1942. In each of 9 months in 1942
Federal valuations accounted for more than half of the urban total
and in 2 months, May and July, were much more than twice the
non-Federal valuations. In contrast, in 1943 the latter exceeded
Federal valuations in all except the first 3 months, and in 2 months,
August and September, were more than double the Federal.
The absence of seasonal fluctuations in the total volume of building
construction started in 1943 reflects the relatively larger total valua­
tions for Federal contracts awarded during winter months coupled
with the effects of materials control on private work.

N ew D welling Units in N onfarm A rea s, 1942 and 1 9 4 3 6

The figures shown in this section are estimates covering the con­
struction of all new family dwelling units in the nonfarm area of the
United States. The “ nonfarm area.” of the United States consists of
all urban and rural nonfarm places. The urban designation is applied
to all incorporated places with a population of 2,500 or more in 1940,
and, by special rule, to a small number of unincorporated civil divi­
sions. Rural nonfarm construction includes all construction for
nonagricultural use in unincorporated areas and incorporated places
of less than 2,500 population. Hence, urban construction is classified
by location, whereas rural nonfarm construction is classified accord­
ing to the intended use of individual buildings.
Building-permit reports collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics
have provided the basic information for current estimates of resi­
dential construction. The Bureau began the regular collection of
these data in 1920, at first including only the larger cities. Since
that time coverage has been steadily expanded untfi it now includes
more than 2,400 cities and 1,000 rural incorporated places. In
addition, since 1939 a small number of counties have reported building
permits issued for their unincorporated areas. Valuable supple­
mentary data, particularly with respect to rural construction, were
made available for the period January 1940 through August 1942
by the Defense Housing Survey, a joint enterprise of the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, the National Housing Agency, and the Work Projects
Administration.
Since building permits are issued when construction work is about
to start, estimates derived from permits represent the future dwellingunit capacity of buildings upon which construction 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.
T R EN D S FROM 1910 THROUGH 1943

The 1943 total of 351,000 new nonfarm family dwelling units
started was less than half of the 1941 post-depression peak of 715,000
units, and somewhat over a third of the 1925 peak of 937,000 units.
On the other hand, it was only slightly less than the average for the
preceding decade (1933-42) and almost four times the 1933 low of
93,000 units. The 1943 volume exceeded that of any year during
the first World War (1917-20) and the period 1930 through 1937.
The similarity in the effects of World War I and II on the number
of new dwelling units can be seen from table 18. In 1917, as in 1942,
the volume of new units declined sharply and continued to decline
through the second year of the United States’ active participation
in the war. The rate of decline was, however, much greater in
1917-18. The principal difference lay in the volume of publicly
financed war housing. Very few publicly financed family dwellings
were provided during the first World War; of the few thousand units
that were built, the first became available late in 1918. In striking
contrast, during 1942 and 1943 the Federal Government provided

over two-fifths of all new units. For the most part these were tempo­
rary units, which will not become part of the permanent housing
supply.

CHANGES FROM 1942 TO 1943

The 29-percent decline from 1942 to 1943 in the total number o f new
nonfarm family dwelling units started was caused primarily by a
39-percent decrease in privately financed units (table 19). Publicly
financed units also declined 15 percent. Most of the public war
housing program is now virtually completed, however; while the cur­
rent level of privately financed activity has changed only slightly
since mid-1942, except for seasonal fluctuations, and appears likely
to remain unchanged for some months, if not for the duration of
the war.
Over 95 percent of the 167,149 publicly financed units started during
1943, or 159,976 units, were in temporary-type structures, as com­
pared to 72 percent of the 1942 total. The number of privately
financed one-family units started, declined 46 percent from 1942 to

37
1943, whereas the number of two-family units increased 2 percent and
multifamily units declined only 6 percent. Shortages in building
materials were mainly responsible for these changes in structural
types as well as for the decline in volume.
The number of new units built in rural areas during 1943 was 35
percent less than in 1942, and the number built in urban areas de­
clined 25 percent. The shift of volume from urban to rural in 1942
and from rural to urban in 1943 reflects principally the effects of the
public war housing program. In 1942, several extremely large proj­
ects, notably the Vanport City (Oreg.) project containing almost
10,000 units, were put under construction contract. The large tracts
of vacant land necessary for such projects are seldom available in
urban areas. Also, the construction of entire communities to serve
isolated war activities contributed to the urban-to-rural shift in 1942.
Such projects were less prominent in 1943, and it was possible to utilize
small vacant tracts in urban areas to a greater extent than in 1942.
The number of new privately financed units declined in 1943 in all
city-size groups and in the rural nonfarm area. Decreases ranged from
22 percent for cities of 100,000 to 500,000 population, to 45 percent
for cities of 25,000 to 50,000 population and for the rural nonfarm area.

Since 1940, increasing proportions of all multifamily-type units
have been in smaller cities. The proportion of all multifamily units
started in cities of over 100,000 population decreased from 71 percent
in 1940 to only 43 percent in 1943. The relatively small number of
new units built in New York City and the generally increased con­
struction of such units elsewhere to conserve building materials have
been responsible for this trend.
In 1943, even more than in 1942, the geographic distribution of the
new nonfarm family dwelling units was determined by the locations
of war activities requiring workers from outside the area. In the
Mountain States 40 percent more units were provided during 1943
than during 1942, while the totals for the other regions declined
variously from 6 percent for the West South Central States to 58 per­
cent for the West North Central States. Twenty-six percent of the
new units in 1943 were in the Pacific States, 19 percent in the South
Atlantic States, and 17 percent in the East North Central States.
More publicly financed units were put under construction contract
during 1943 than in 1942 in three regions—the Mountain, West South
Central, and East North Central States. Over a third of all public
units begun during 1942 and 1943 were in the Pacific States, while
almost another third were in the East North Central and South
Atlantic States.

The geographic distribution of the new private units in 1943 differs
widely from the distribution of the new public units. The public
war-housing program has principally provided housing for which there
appeared to be only a temporary need, whereas private builders have
furnished housing of a more permanent nature. Consequently, larger
proportions of public housing have been concentrated in areas like
the Pacific and Mountain States, while private builders have provided
the larger part of the new units in areas such as the East North Central
and South Atlantic States. All geographic divisions shared in the
39-percent decline in the number of privately financed units begun in
1943, as compared to 1942, the declines ranging from 12 percent for
the Mountain States to 70 percent for the West North Central States
(table 20). More 1- and 2-family privately financed units were put
under construction during 1943 in the East North Central States than
in any other region, while 43 percent of the new multifamily units
were in the South Atlantic States.
P R IV A T E L Y FIN AN C E D W A R HOUSING

Limited generally to war housing for which there will be permanent
need and by acute shortages of both building materials and labor,
private builders started construction on 184,000 new family dwelling
units in 1943. This was 39 percent fewer units than in 1942 and fewer
than in any previous year since 1920 except for the 3-year depression
period 1932-34.
Between July 1940 and March 1942, private builders started con­
struction on over a million homes, of which an estimated 400,000
were classified as war housing units, i. e., units costing less than $6,000
and built in designated critical housing areas. In April 1942, the
War Production Board issued Conservation Order L-41, prohibiting
all nonessential construction. From then until the end of 1943,
construction was started on over 300,000 additional private war
housing units.7 Between September 1941 (when the War Produc­
tion Board first began issuing priorities to builders of war housing
in critical areas) and the end of 1943, the War Production Board
had approved preference ratings for 545,000 new units. Of these,
327,000 were completed and 78,000 more were under construction
by the end of 1943.
Approximately 156,000 family dwelling units were put under con­
struction during 1943 under the private war housing program of the
National Housing Agency. Most of the difference between this
figure and the estimated private total of 184,000 is accounted for
by small houses costing only a few hundred dollars apiece and built
without priorities assistance.8 In addition, nonwar housing priorities
were issued for about 4,000 units, usually to replace structures which
were destroyed by fire, flood, tornado, lightning, etc. There may
also have been some illegal building.
Shortly after the start of the Defense Program, it became apparent
that because of the unusual risks involved, private builders would
require encouragement in supplying war housing units. Conse­
quently, in March 1941, Congress added Title VI to the National

Labor Review, September 1943 (p. 513).

40
Housing Act governing the operations of the Federal Housing Admin­
istration. This amendment liberalized FHA-insurance terms to
builders who would provide low-cost war housing in specific areas
designated by the President. Only 27,500 of the 220,300 FHAinsured units on which construction was started during 1941, were
insured under Title VI. About 112,300 or 70 percent of the 159,600
FHA-insured units started during 1942 were insured under Title VI,
and during 1943 all but about 700 of the 137,800 new FHA units
were so insured.
Private builders began curtailing their activities slightly late in
1941, but it was not until April 1942 that the volume was seriously
affected. Only 81,000 units were put under construction during the
second quarter of 1942, as compared to 111,000 in the previous quarter
and 191,000 in the second quarter of 1941. Activity slowly declined
thereafter, reaching a low of 34,000 units in the first quarter of 1943.
Since that time little or no change, except that resulting from seasonal
factors, has occurred. It now seems probable that, unless the military
situation should greatly improve, there will be little change in volume
during 1944.
PUBLICLY FINANCED WAR HOUSING

Under the publicly financed war housing program, started in June
1940, projects providing permanent or “ duration” accommodations
for 502,000 families and 161,000 single persons, as well as 50,000 stop­
gap housing units (trailers) were available or were under construction
contract by the end of 1943. An additional 19,000 family units, 2,000
dormitory units, and 6,000 trailers had been assigned for development
but had not yet been placed under contract.9
Virtually all Federally financed war housing put under contract
since February 1942 which was not situated on military reservations
has been constructed under the supervision of the Federal Public
Housing Authority of the National Housing Agency. This latter
agency was created by Executive order in February 1942 to consoli­
date the various war housing activities of 16 Federal agencies, of
which the most important were the United States Housing Authority
and the Federal Works Agency.1
0
Over $2,285,000,000 was made available from June 1940 through
December 1943 to provide housing for war workers. The Lanham
Act (Public, No. 849, 76th Cong.) has been the principal source of
fmids. A total of $1,400,000,000 has been appropriated under this
act and its amendments, since its original enactment on October 14,
1940. An additional $320,000,000 w provided by Public Act No. 9,
^as
77th Cong., for temporary housing which could not be constructed
from any other funds. About $565,000,000 had been made available
from all other sources, including appropriations for the War and Navy
Departments, Defense Plant Corporation, U. S. Maritime Commis­
sion, and others.*

41
Originally, Federally financed war housing projects consisted
entirely of permanent units which were to be used temporarily by
defense workers. The possibility of overbuilding such units in some
localities, and the necessity to conserve scarce building materials while
providing a maximum amount of shelter, resulted in the shift to
“ demountable” and other temporary-type units shown in table 21.
In addition to the 159,976 temporary and 7,173 permanent family
units,1 dormitory projects to house 45,494 persons and trailer parks to
1
contain 29,844 trailers were put under construction contract during
1943. During 1942, work was started on 140,598 temporary and
54,809 permanent family units, 103,692 dormitory units, and 17,032
trailer units.1

In order further to conserve critical materials, while providing a
maximum number of dwelling units, the publicly financed conversion
program of the National Housing Agency was begun early in 1943
under the supervision of the Home Owners Loan Corporation. Under
this program, 15,093 additional units had been made available, 19,363
were under constructibn, and 21,117 were programmed but were not
yet under contract by the end of 1943.

ESTIM ATED PE RM IT V A LU ATION

The permit valuation of the 350,900 new nonfarm dwelling units
started during 1943 was estimated at $897,931,000, of which $539,662,000 was for privately financed units and $358,269,000 for publicly
financed projects (table 22). The 496,600 new units started during
1942 had a permit valuation of $1,530,606,000, of which $948,360,000
was for privately financed and $582,246,000 for public projects.
1 Data on family dwelling units started during 1943 exclude 695 units added byconversion and 1,359 slum1
clearance units made available for war housing.
1 Dormitory and trailer data exclude completed projects canceled before August 1,1943.

42
The disproportionate decrease in total valuation, from 1942 to 1943, of
41 percent, as compared to the decrease of 29 percent in the number
of dwelling units, is due in part to the greatly reduced average valu­
ation of the publicly financed units and in part to the greater propor­
tion of publicly financed dwelling*units put under construction in 1943.
For a number of reasons, the estimates of construction costs which
are given by builders when applying for permits generally understate
actual costs. The results of a study made by the Bureau of Labor
Statistics indicate that costs of 1-family houses average 15.5 percent
more than the valuations entered on the permit records. Further
study may modify this conclusion and may also show a different rela­
tionship between costs and permit valuations of 2-family and multi­
family units. In the absence of more complete data, permit valua­
tions of privately financed units should be increased 15.5 percent to
yield estimated construction costs. Construction costs for publicly
financed units are obtained from contract awards and hence no
adjustment of public totals is necessary. With these considerations
in mind, construction of the 350,900 units in 1'943 and 496,600 units
in 1942 is estimated to involve expenditures of approximately $980,000,000 and $1,680,000,000, respectively.

Trend in Private B uilding Construction Costs

Construction costs for privately financed buildings, as measured by
a composite index of average hourly earnings and wholesale prices of
building materials, have risen 40 percent between 1934 and 1943.
After remaining on a comparatively even keel during the 3-year period
1934-36, sharp rises in 1937 in both labor and material charges resulted
in a 10-percent increase in costs. Although union wage rates, which
had been gradually increasing since 1934, rose by almost 10 percent
between 1937 and 1938, average hourly earnings remained virtually
unchanged. This was caused primarily by a decline of one-third in
the volume of private nonresidential building on which higher wage
rates generally prevail. Furthermore, as a result of a 5-percent
decrease in material prices in 1938 the composite index was 3 percent
lower than in 1937.




43
Increasing basic wage rates plus increases in the relative amount
of overtime worked at premium rates, in addition to rising material
prices, notably for lumber, resulted in an increase of almost 30 percent
in construction costs between 1938 and 1943. Brisk competition for
construction workers from publicly financed War construction projects,
coupled with the demands from war industries and the military serv­
ices, caused virtually all private builders to pay wages and overtime
penalties equivalent to those required under union agreements. Some
measure of the extent to which increased overtime and the shift to
the equivalent of basic union wage rates affected building costs
between 1940 and 1943 may be seen by comparing the 11-percent
increase in union wage rates with the 31-percent rise in average
hourly earnings.

1 Based on average hourly earnings in private building construction and wholesale prices of building
materials. In 1939 labor constituted 38.6 percent and material 61.4 percent of the composite average.
Changes in construction costs resulting from variations in the efficiency of labor and management, in com­
petitive markets, and in overhead costs are not reflected in this index.




44
The wholesale prices of building materials have risen far less in this
war than during World War I. Comparable figures show that whereas
they were 92 percent higher in November 1918 than in July 1914, the
wholesale prices of building materials rose only 27 percent between
August 1939 and December 1943. The effectiveness of price control
during this war may be judged from the fact that while average prices
for all building materials went up 23 percent from August 1939 to
March 1942, they rose only 2% percent in the following 21 months
under operation of the General Maximum Price Regulation.1

The General Maximum Price Regulation was issued by the Office of Price Administration on April 28,1942,
and provided that, with certain exceptions, manufacturers’, wholesalers’, and retailers’ prices were to go no
higher than the highest price which the respective commodities brought in March 1942.

1 Rates for 1943 are actual average rates computed from a sample of quotations of union wage rates. The
Bureau’s sample of union wage-rate quotations for early years was heavily weighted by quotations from
larger cities. However, cities added from time to time have been smaller and of different geographic distri­
bution and thus current figures more accurately represent union wage rates for the country as a whole.
Consequently, rates for years before 1943 shown in this table are estimates from an index of union wage rates
in which year to year changes have been measured using quotations from identical local unions for each pair
of years. These estimates for 1942 to 1934 are lower than those based on the Bureau’s changing sample of
quotations as published annually in “ Union Wages and Hours in the Building Trades.”
2 Average includes selected trades plus others not shown in this table. For other trades and years, see
annual Bureau publication “ Union Wages and Hours in the Building Trades.”
2Includes rodmen prior to 1940.
