L abor :

I have the honor to transmit herewith a statistical report showing trends
in construction activity, particularly during the 4 years of World War II. In
addition to presenting the effects of war on the construction industry, this
report resumes the annual publication of a statistical bulletin on construction
expenditures, employment, and building volume, interrupted in 1944 by
wartime pressures.
This bulletin was prepared in the Bureau’s Division of Construction Statis­
tics, H. E. Riley, Chief. Henry F. Haase was in charge of statistical estimating
and developed the tabulating and estimating techniques. Adela L. Stucke
planned the tables and prepared the text, under the general direction of
Dorothy K. Newman.
E w a n C lague , Commissioner.

CONSTRUCTION IN THE W A R YEARS
Total Construction Activity
Expenditures for Construction
The course of construction activity during the
years 1940 to 1945 reflects clearly the pressures and
tensions of a wartime economy. Stimulated first
by the national defense program and later by the
all-out war production effort, expenditures for con­
struction reached a new high in 1942— over 14
billion dollars. By 1944, however, as a result of the

completion of most war construction and curtail­
ment of all nonessential building, expenditures had
dropped to less than 5 billion dollars— a 66-percent
decline. This was the most violent downsweep in
any 2-year period for which reliable figures are
available. Thus, the developing construction boom
of the 1940’s was split in two by the war.
Available evidence, dating from 1915, points to a
similarity in the pattern of both long-term trends

in construction expenditures and general movements
in the value of gross national product.1 M ajor
swings occur in both series at about the same time,
but fluctuations are more extreme in the case of
construction. During the period between World
Wars I and II, for example, construction volume
and national product both were at peak in the last

half of the 1920’s and both dropped to the low
point in their cycle in the depression year of 1933.
The range from peak to trough for construction
expenditures was 79 percent (from 12.3 billion to
2.6 billion dollars), in contrast to 45 percent (from
99.4 billion to 54.8 billion dollars) for national
product.
From 1934 on, construction activity moved in
the same direction with general business activity
but expanded more rapidly, until 1942. Then the

general business. For this reason, and because it is
the largest single industry except agriculture, con­
struction is a particularly important part of the
economy.

impact of the war caused the two series to develop
opposite trends— business continued sharply up­
ward while construction was forced to contract
drastically. As soon as the war ended, however,
construction began to expand £t a much higher
rate than national product as a whole.
Although these figures, which are in current
dollars, may not state the case fully because they
do not allow for changes in prices and differences in
pricing bases between war and nonwar production,
they demonstrate adequately the relationship of
movements in the construction industry to those in
the economy as a whole. The extreme year-to-year
fluctuations which characterize construction activ­

Estimating construction expenditures
Construction expenditures are a measure of the
dollar value of construction work actually done.
Hence, they differ from the building permit and con­
tract award series, discussed on pages 12-22, which
represents the value of work planned to be started
immediately or in the near future. Expenditures
include the installed value of equipment considered

* Estimates of new construction from 1915 through 1938, except for nonfarm
residential building, were made by the Office of Domestic Commerce, U. S.
Department of Commerce. For 1939 and subsequent years estimates were
made jointly by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, U. S. Department of Labor,
and the Office of Domestic Commerce. New construction includes expend­
itures for major additions and alterations.
* Excludes nonresidential building by privately owned public utilities.

an integral part of a structure, but exclude the
value of land, machinery, and movable equipment.
Included under new construction is the value of
major additions and alterations. Minor building
repairs, which are shown separately, include those
types of work for which building permits are
generally issued. They exclude maintenance work
such as painting, plumbing and heating, water­

proofing, papering, electrical repairs, etc., not
incident to structural repairs.
Estimates of expenditures for private residential
building are based on the valuation figures recorded
on reports of building permits issued, which are
submitted to the Bureau of Labor Statistics by
local building officials. These data are adjusted to
account for residential building activity in non­

permit issuing places, abandonments, and for the
understatement of construction costs inherent in
building permit valuations.
Separate estimates are made for each of several
types of private nonresidential building, based
upon records of contracts awarded as reported
monthly by the F. W . Dodge Corp. Estimates for
the other types of construction, Federal and nonFederal, are for the most part derived from reports
obtained from other government agencies and
private industry, as well as published sources
such as the weekly periodical, Engineering News-

New private construction expenditures, which
accounted for approximately 80 percent of all the
money spent for new construction during the entire
period of the 1920,s, dropped to 22 percent of the
total in 1942, the first year of World War II. In
1942, outlays from private funds amounted to only
2.9 billion dollars, compared with the 1926 peak of

over 9 billion dollars. On the other hand, an un­
precedented volume of publicly financed construc­
tion (10.4 billion dollars) brought the total for new
work to 13.3 billion dollars— the highest level in
the country’s history.
Expenditures for military and naval facilities
construction, which ordinarily account for only a
few million, and even in 1918 totaled but 1.6 billion
dollars, rose to over 5 billion dollars in 1942. This
was almost two-fifths of the 1942 expenditures for
all new work. The largest category after military
and naval facilities was publicly financed industrial
buildings, which reached the unprecedented amount

of 3.4 billion dollars. In no year prior to 1941 was
more than about 164 million dollars spent for con­
struction of new public industrial buildings. High­
way construction, which normally forms a larger
part of the public total than any of the other classes,
exceeded a billion dollars each year between 1925
and 1931 but fell to 675 million dollars in 1942.
Private residential construction, at 1.3 billion
dollars, comprised the third largest segment of new
construction expenditures in the opening war year.
This was less than half the amount (2.8 billion
dollars) spent in the good prewar home-building
year 1941.

New construction expenditures, 1942-45

TOTAL CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

In 1943, new construction expenditures totaled
7.7 billion dollars— a drop of more than 40 percent
from the 1942 high mark; in 1944, they fell even
more— to around 4 billion dollars. Completion of
most war construction projects was entirely re­
sponsible for the drop between 1943 and 1944.
Private work was about the same in both years,
1.7 billion dollars, whereas public activity declined
from 6 billion dollars in 1943 to 2.3 billion dollars
in 1944.
By 1944, construction of military and naval
facilities was down to 837 million dollars; private
residential building accounted for only 535 million
dollars, and publicly financed industrial buildings
for 507 million dollars.
Commercial building financed from private funds
shrank to 32 million dollars in 1943— the lowest
dollar volume in any year for which estimates are
available. In the middle 1920's this type of con­
struction came to over a billion dollars a year.
Privately financed construction, previously re­
stricted by wartime necessities, was allowed to
expand prior to the actual termination of the war.
Limitation orders were eased at an early date, open­
ing the road to recovery of civilian construction.
The problems connected with reconversion were not
the same in the construction industry as those con­
fronting manufacturers. For example, there were
no plants to clear out, very little war work to com­
plete, and few contracts to terminate. On the other
hand, a great deal of recruitment was necessary to
expand the construction work force. In addition,
there was the task of organizing new undertakings,
getting materials assembled on the site, and obtain­
ing sufficient supplies of building materials from
plants operating far below capacity.
W ork forged ahead on many fronts, however, as
soon as labor was recruited and the required in­
ventories were accumulated. The latter, especially,
presented grave obstacles, but they were overcome
sufficiently for construction to advance notably in
the closing months of 1945. The dollarvolume of new
private construction put in place in the last half of the
year was about double that for the first 6 months.
For the year as a whole, new construction
expenditures totaled 4.6 billion dollars, an increase
of 13 percent over 1944. One of the outstanding
features of this expansion was the marked shift in
importance between publicly and privately financed
activity. In the early part of 1945, expenditures
averaged over 160 million dollars a month for new



5

public construction and around 120 million dollars
for new private work. By December, the public
construction volume dropped to 98 million dollars,
but private activity rose to 352 million dollars.
The greatest advance, by far, took place in pri­
vate nonresidential building construction. This
was one of the first areas to be affected by the
changing military situation. On M ay 29,1945, and
again on June 11, the War Production Board relaxed
the terms of L -412 to hasten the construction or
alteration of industrial plants for the production of
bottleneck items and essential civilian articles in
short supply. These amendments were made to
insure that limitations on construction would not
obstruct the rapid reconversion of industry nor
delay the reemployment in civilian production of
the greatest possible number of workers.
This policy was further implemented as soon as
the war was over by the issuance of an order per­
mitting the building of industrial plants without
W PB authorization after August 21, 1945. Con­
sequently, outlays for new private nonresidential
building construction in 1945 amounted to over a
billion dollars, three-fifths of which were for indus­
trial facilities. The 1944 figure for private non­
residential building (350 million dollars) was about
a third of the 1945 total.
Private new residential construction also in­
creased substantially in 1945. All during the war,
home building had been subordinated to the needs
of vital industrial construction, so that the demand
for new houses was extremely urgent by the end of
the period. On the assumption that the most
expeditious way to get an immediate expansion of
residential building was to remove restrictions on
all construction, the War Production Board revoked
L-41 on October 15, 1945. As a result expenditure
figures for the last months of 1945 rose markedly.
Within the short span of a year the monthly volume
of private housing expenditures increased fivefold.
In the first quarter of 1945 the monthly rate was
about 23 million dollars, the lowest in the entire war
period; by December, despite normal seasonal
tendencies, it was 116 million dollars. During the
entire year, 670 million dollars was spent for
residential building— a fourth above the 1944
dollar volume.
3 Conservation Order L-41 was issued on April 9, 1942, placing all con­
struction under rigid control. The order made it necessary for builders to
obtain authorization from the War Production Board to begin residential
construction costing $500 or more; agricultural construction costing $1,000
or more; or commercial and other construction costing $5,000 or more
during any continuous 12-month period.

1 Covers all types of workers (wage earners, salaried employees, working
proprietors, and self-employed persons, as well as force-account workers)
actively engaged on all types of new construction work and on alteration,
addition, and repair work of the kind usually covered by building permits.
(Force-account employees are workers hired, not through a contractor, but
directly by a business or government agency, and utilized as a separate work
force to perform nonmaintenance construction work on the agency’s own

properties.) Persons engaged in maintenance work are not included.
These estimates indicate average employment during the month (as
distinguished from the number of different persons shown on pay-roll or
employment records) and have been derived primarily by the conversion of
dollar-expenditure figures into employment by the use of average perform­
ance factors.

Employment in the Construction
Industry

The employment averages are derived primarily
by converting construction expenditure figures into
the average number of man-months of labor ordi­
narily required to perform the volume of work
reported, using a currently adjusted figure for the
value of work performed per man per month. The
average employment figures obtained for the periods
specified (man-months of employment) may be
considerably lower than the number of different
individuals employed during these periods as shown
on pay-roll records, because of the high turn-over
in the construction industry.
It should be noted that the above procedure is
used only in the case of nonfederally financed con­
struction. In the case of Federal construction,
employment is estimated directly from reports on
employment obtained from contractors.
Estimates of the value of work performed per
man-month on non-Federal work are adjusted
regularly for changes in average hourly earnings

Estimating methods
Construction employment figures presented in
this section are estimates of the average number of
workers employed in connection with construction
operations in the United States. They include
wage earners and salaried employees engaged on
all types of new construction work and on alter­
ation, addition, and repair work of the kind
usually covered by building permits. Force-account
workers3 are also included, as well as self-employed
persons, working proprietors, and workers employed
by construction firms either on or off the construc­
tion site. The estimates exclude persons engaged
in maintenance work.
* Force-account employees are workers hired not through a contractor,
but directly by a business or government agency, and utilized as a separate
work force to perform nonmaintenance construction work on the agency’s
own properties.

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

and in the average workweek of construction
workers, as well as for changes in materials prices.
They are checked periodically also against actual
experience, using data on the operation of sample
projects under construction.
It is assumed in making these adjustments that
contractors’ overhead and profit remain a constant
percentage of the value of work performed. This
assumption introduces error in the results, since
the percentage undoubtedly changes with com­
petitive conditions and as mechanization and other
developments in method of operation affect over­
head. Another assumption affecting the level of
the employment figures is that productivity per
man-hour is constant. While changes in produc­
tivity are ordinarily slow, they can be rapid when
technological developments occur. They are both
rapid and erratic during periods of shortages and
other conditions of disorganization similar to those
of the recent past. Sufficient information is not
available to adjust for these considerations. The
average employment figures shown must therefore
be interpreted accordingly.

Employment by type of project, 1941-45
During 1941 and 1942, employment on all types
of construction projects exceeded the 2-millionmark for the first time in a decade. Average
monthly employment on public construction proj­
ects, which had fluctuated relatively little during
the 12 years 1929-40, rose almost constantly during
early war preparations to an unprecedented level of
1.950.000 persons in August 1942. The decline from
that month on was consistent and rapid. In fact,
the decrease in 1943 released an average of almost
86.000 persons a month. (More than 90 percent of
the publicly financed war construction program was
completed by the end of 1943.) Average employ­
ment on public construction for 1943 was 957,000,
compared with 1,488,000 in 1942, and by 1945, the
average for the year was only 283,000.
W ith recovery and growing economic prosperity,
average employment on private construction
projects rose steeply in the early defense period,
reaching almost 1,800,000 in July 1941. The high
employment volume in 1929 (which averaged 2J^
million for the year) was never again attained, how­
ever, for late in 1941 control of materials and
restrictions on private projects were imposed to
assure materials and men for war production.
Private construction employment then decreased



sharply to an average of 726,000 workers in 1942,
slightly over half the 1,423,000 average for 1941.
The decline to 375,000 in 1944 gave employment to
21 percent fewer workers in that year than in the
depression year 1933.
Although the monthly
average for the entire year had recovered to only
685,000 in 1945, by December over a million persons
were working on private construction, foreshadow­
ing the surge in postwar building.

About half the 2 million persons engaged on new
construction in 1942 were working on federally
financed nonresidential building projects such as
barracks, ordnance plants, shipbuilding and repair
facilities, and warehouses. This type of employ­
ment, which declined over 40 percent between 1942
and 1943 and another 63 percent in the following
year, dropped to a monthly average of 157,000 in
1945.
Because of the need for emergency housing and
highways to move war goods, Federal residential
building and non-Federal street and highway con­
struction were the next most important types of
public projects in providing employment in the
defense and early war periods. About 85,000
workers were employed on the former and 115,000
on the latter in 1941. By 1945, however, the re­
spective averages were 11,000 and 28,000.
Home construction has been the most important
segment of private building, and in 1941, the very

TOTAL CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

good housing year, 627,000 workers were employed
on privately financed residential building. A rapid
decline to an average of 256,000 in 1942 was brought
about by the initiation of construction controls in
April of that year. In 1944, the monthly employ­
ment figure for new private residential construction
averaged only 88,000; but it increased by almost
50 percent in 1945.
Both residential and nonresidential building were
given impetus by the lifting of wartime controls in

1945; however, the backlog of ready funds and
completed plans was especially great in business
and industry. Although privately financed non­
residential building accounted for only about half
as much employment as residential building in
1941, the relationship was reversed as soon as the
war ended. In 1945 an average of 200,000 persons
a month were working on private new nonresidential
building, compared with 129,000 on new housing
construction.

Construction compared with total nonagricultural employment
An approximation of the weight of construction
in the whole nonagricultural employment picture is
given in table 4. It should be noted that figures
shown for employment in all nonagricultural
establishments exclude the self-employed, working
proprietors, and firm members, whereas estimates
for construction employment include such persons.
In addition, the construction employment series
is designed to show the total employment effect of
construction activity and, therefore, includes em­
ployees of nonconstruction (or multi-industry)
organizations who may engage in construction.
For example, a firm concerned principally with the*



marketing of lumber may at the same time contract
for and build houses. Workers of such a firm would
be counted in the nonagricultural series under
wholesale or retail trade and again in the construc­
tion series under residential building.
Recognizing that the two series are not directly
comparable because of the inclusion of self-employed
and firm members in construction estimates, the
series do, nevertheless, provide a rough measure of
the relative importance of all construction employ­
ment to total nonagricultural employment.
Construction employment appears from such a
comparison to be an exaggerated indicator of the
trend in all nonfarm work, because it comprises a
much greater proportion of total nonagricultural

1 Data on employment in all nonagricultural establishments cover wage and
salaried employees and exclude self-employed persons, working proprietors,
and firm members. All of the groups mentioned are included in the con­
struction employment estimates. The wage earners and salaried employees
included in the construction series are construction and special trades con­
tractors’ wage-earner and salaried employees, whether working at the con­
struction site or in the contractors’ offices, shops, or yards.
The construction employment estimates are designed to show all employ­
ment afforded by construction activity; thus, they cover all persons per­
forming work on, or employed on work directly incident to, new construc­
tion, major additions and alterations, and building repairs of the type for
which building permits are usually issued. These employees are included
even if working as force-account workers or as contract-construction em­
ployees in industries classified as nonconstruction for the purposes of the
nonagricultural series. Persons engaged in maintenance work, however,
are not included.
Force-account employees are workers hired, not through a contractor, but
directly by a business or government agency, and utilized as a separate
work force to perform nonmaintenance construction work on the agency’s
own properties.

employment in prosperous peacetime years than in
depression years. Construction activity is affected
so directly by good or bad times that employment
in this field increases or falls off proportionately
more than in industry as a whole.
Employment on construction projects comprised
over 8 percent of the estimated total (31.1 million
workers) employed in all nonagricultural establish­
ments in 1929. After this boom year, the proportion
of construction employment to total nonagricultural
employment dropped each year to an average of
4.5 percent in the depression years 1933-35. Con­
struction employment rose again in importance in
the total nonagricultural labor force beginning with
1936; between 1936 and 1940 construction site
workers comprised about 6 percent of all non­
agricultural workers, and in 1941 the proportion
was 6.9 percent.
Total industrial employment continued to rise
steeply during the war years, while restraints on



nonessential construction activity, instituted in
1942, and subsequent completion of the major part
of the war construction program caused employ­
ment in the construction industry to fall off heavily.
In 1943 construction employment comprised only
3.3 percent of the nonagricultural employed labor
force, and in 1944 as little as 1.9 percent. By 1945,
construction rose to 2.5 percent of total nonagri­
cultural employment, but that was still below the
proportion for the depression year 1933.

Volume of Federal Construction,
1935-45
A good indicator of the fluctuations in Federal
construction in response to national programs and
policies, is the value of contracts awarded and forceaccount work started on construction projects
financed from Federal funds (either wholly or
partially). Construction work by force account
under a Federal agency is work for which no con­
tract is let but which is conducted directly by the
agency itself. The workers are usually employed
for a specific project at completion of which their
services may be terminated. Data presented here
are a compilation of reports from Federal agencies
on the value of construction contracts they awarded
or of force-account work they started. Estimates
of actual expenditures on all public works, State
and local as well as Federal, are given on pages 2
to 6.
During the 11-year period January 1935 to
December 1945, Federal construction awards and
force-account work came to almost 29 billion
dollars.4 Considerably more than half of that
amount, or 16 billion dollars, was for nonresidential
building construction; the remainder, over 12
billion dollars, was spent for such construction
projects as highways and roads, housing, airports,
bridges, reclamation, and water supply and sewer­
age systems. In addition to projects financed from
regular Federal appropriations, four emergency or
special construction programs were either in opera­
tion or introduced within the 11-year period covered.
The first and largest of these was the Public Works
Administration program, which began in July 1933
and was practically completed by December 1941.

Projects Administration funds, but operated by *

TOTAL CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

other Federal agencies, included projects other than
work relief and 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 con­
struction of schools, water systems, sewer systems,
and various other types of facilities needed in
crowded war areas under the W ar Pubic Works
program begun in late 1941.

Trend , 1935-45
Although there has always been some construc­
tion financed by regular Federal appropriations, the
PW A program in 1933 was the forerunner of largescale Federal public works programs. From 1935

to 1939 well over three-fifths of Federal construction
award values were for PW A and W PA projects.
After extension of PW A from funds made available
by the Emergency Relief Appropriation A ct of 1935
and the inception of the W PA program financed
from the same act, the contracts awarded or forceaccount work started in 1935 amounted to some­
what over
billion dollars— 87 percent of the
total for the year. Continuance of the PW A and
W PA programs in 1936 raised the value of Federal
awards slightly— from 1,478 million to 1,543 million
dollars. Smaller PW A appropriations and a reduc­
tion in amounts transferred from W PA funds to
Federal construction wprk in 1937 resulted in a drop
in total Federal awards of nearly half a billion

dollars. The 1937 figure of 1,046 million dollars was
the lowest for any year, except 1945, during the
11-year period.
Passage of the Public Works
Administration A ct of 1938 and the inception of the
USHA program, however, caused total awards to
mount again in 1938 and remain steady in 1939.
The next few years witnessed the introduction of
the “ defense program,” in June 1940 and the “ war
program,” after the attack on Pearl Harbor. PW A
and W P A were decreasing in importance, but the
defense program, including the first cantonment
camp project, pushed 1940 Federal construction
awards to $2,395,000,000, well over two-fifths above
the 1939 figure. With increased demands for mili­
tary camps and posts, and expanded construction

of such production facilities as shipyards and air­
craft and other munitions plants, the total for 1941
rose abruptly to $6,014,000,000, over
times that
for the previous year. The peak was reached in
1942 when contract awards for the war construction
program amounted to more than $7,814,000,000, or
27 percent of the total for the entire period 1935-45.
A sudden drop occurred the following year, how­
ever, to a figure near the 1940 level because many
of the most important war construction projects
were already under way. Thus, in the 4-year period
1940-43, nearly 19 billion dollars worth of contracts
were awarded for defense and war purposes,
amounting to 66 percent of the 11-year total and
over 2}/2 times the total for the 5 years 1935-39.




12

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

Further reductions occurred in 1944 as the bulk of
the war construction projects were completed; and
in 1945 the total dropped to $1,030,000,000, the
lowest volume reported in any year in the period
under discussion.

Types of projects included in the program
Of all the types of projects undertaken, nonresidential building construction was by far the
most important. The money for nonresidential
building (16 billion dollars), from 1935 to 1945, was
allocated for schools, hospitals, post offices, public
buildings of all types, and, tin connection with the
war program, cantonment camps and barracks*
hangars, magazines and storehouses, and the many
different types o f 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 about 3 % billion dollars.
Over four-fifths of this amount was administered
under the Public Roads Administration.
Slum-clearance and low-rent housing projects
accounted for nearly 2 billion dollars in awards and

were built largely under jurisdiction of three
agencies: The Housing Division of PW A, the
United States Housing Authority, and the Federal
Public Housing Authority, the latter having major
responsibility for the large war housing program.
Airport construction (withawardsof $1,616,000,000),
river, harbor, and flood-control projects ($1,204,000,000), and reclamation projects ($1,042,000,000)
were the only other types to reach the billion-dollar
mark.
The reclamation work that was carried on under
Federal contract included large dams in the West
and the T V A in the South. Enlargement and
improvement of the Panama Canal, accounting for
more than 275 million dollars appropriated in 1941,
and construction of the Midtown Hudson Tunnel
of New York City were among the largest heavy­
engineering projects accomplished in the 11-year,
period. Miscellaneous projects swelled the total,
especially in 1941 and 1942 when a great number of
multiple-use military installations were begun.
Sometimes as many as five or six different types of
facilities were provided in one project— barracks,
roads, sanitation, communication, and training
facilities, hospitals, and administration buildings.

Building Construction
Building construction comprises the largest and
most violently fluctuating part of total construction
activity and strongly influences the behavior of the
remainder. A great deal of nonbuilding construc­
tion, such as streets and highways, pipe lines, sewer
systems, telephone equipment, which follows im­
mediately after or is performed simultaneously with
building construction, constitutes the other part of
what is practically a joint demand. When building
construction rises and falls, therefore, nonbuilding
moves in the same direction, although frequently
not to the same extreme degree.
During the 30-year period 1915-45, expenditures
for building construction in almost every year
amounted to at least half the dollar volume of all
construction put in place, and in a number of years
the proportion was well over three-fifths (table 1).
In prosperous years especially, building construction
forms the major part of the total.



Trends in City Building
257

cities, 1921-45

T o relate current activity to past performances
in city building construction, the Bureau of Labor
Statistics prepares series showing the annual volume
pf building construction since 1921 in 257 large
cities5 (tables 6, 7, and 9). From 1929 on, buildingconstruction trends are reflected more accurately
through indexes (see table 12), which are based on
data from a larger and more representative sample
of incorporated places.
Both sets of figures reveal an almost continuous
upward trend in permit valuation6 of building con5 Cities with population of 25,000 or more, of which there were 412 in 1940.
The 257 cities are marked with an asterisk in the appendix— Building
Construction Reported to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by City and by
Class of Construction, 1943, 1944, and 1945 (p. 57).
6 Permit valuation figures are estimates based on reports of construction
cost as recorded on building permits, and on notifications of Federal building
construction contracts awarded.

struction, commencing immediately after the
depression low in 1933 and lasting through 1941.
This was followed by a sharp decline in 1942,
further decreases in 1943 and 1944, and the first
signs of recovery in 1945.
Permit valuations in the 257 cities in 1944 were
less than half as great as in 1942, the first war year,
but were almost double the figure for 1933 when
building slumped to the lowest point recorded in
the 2^ decades for which data are shown. Valua­
32
tions were highest in the 1920,s, especially 1925 and
1926. Only in 1941 when national-defense building
was in its stride has any year since 1929 even
approached the level of building construction be­
tween 1922 and 1929. Except for 1935, the 1944
figure was the lowest in a decade; however, in 1945
valuations rose again by 63 percent.

Usually residential building7 exceeds nonresidential, and in prosperous years it accounts for the
'major part of building activity. In the depression
years 1930-35, on the other hand, and in the defense
and war years 1941 and 1942, the reverse was true.
In fact, new residential building valuations fell so
low in 1933 and 1934 that they were considerably
below those reported for additions, alterations, and
repairs. In 1942 permit valuations in the 257 cities
for nonresidential building were more than twice
the residential, mainly because of extensive con­
struction of military and war industry facilities and
rigid curtailment under Government order of nonessential building.




7 Building permit data on residential construction include hotels, lodging
houses, and such miscellaneous living quarters as dormitories and clubs, in
addition to the housekeeping accommodations which are referred to as
“ new family dwelling units” in other parts of this section.

All three classes of building construction shared
in the sharp decrease in activity from 1942 to 1943;
additions, alterations, and repairs had the smallest
decline and nonresidential building the greatest, so
that again in 1943 the volume of residential building
was larger than that of nonresidential. In 1944,
when construction of war housing was nearly com­
pleted, residential permit valuations once more
dropped below nonresidential and retained that
relative position in 1945.
Five leading cities.— New York C ity8 led all other
cities for 21 years (1921-41) with respect to the
dollar volume of permits issued for building con­
struction. In 1942, however, New York dropped
to third place, and in 1943 it did not even appear
among the five leading cities. Chicago moved into
the lead in 1942 and remained there in 1943;
Los Angeles ranked first in 1944 and 1945.

New Orleans, Oakland, and Houston, in 1943,
1944, and 1945, respectively, were among the lead­
ing five for the first time within the 2J^ decades*
* Data for New York City are not exactly comparable throughout the years.

under survey. Construction of enormous aircraft
and shipbuilding facilities accounted for the greatest
portion of increased activity in New Orleans and
Oakland. Houston came to the fore in 1945 mainly
because a huge N avy hospital building program got
under way in the first part of the year and a spurt
in private commercial building took place as soon
as construction controls were lifted in the latter
part of the year.
New dwelling units.— Estimates of the number of
new dwelling units for which permits were issued
in the 257 cities, each year from 1910 to 1945, are
presented in table 7. This series provides a reliable
measure of year-to-year fluctuations in urban
residential construction during the decade which
included World War I. Since that time, however,
the urban population of the country has been grow­
ing at an increasingly greater rate than in the 257
cities. Other biases inherent in fixed samples have
also affected this series. Eor the period commenc­
ing with 1920, when these biases become noticeable,
more reliable estimates of fluctuations in residential
construction will be found in tables 13 and 14,
which show the number of new dwelling units
started in all urban and rural nonfarm areas.
Permits were issued for more new dwelling units

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

in the 257 cities in 1941 than in any other year after
1929. Although the total of the 232,000 homes
shown in table 9 for 1941 was over 11 times that for
the low year 1934, it was only about half the volume
for each year 1923 through 1926. By 1944 the
number had dropped to only a little over a fourth
of the 1941 figure, but was still 3 times the 1934
volume. There was a reversal of the down-trend in
1945, particularly in the last quarter of the year
when wartime restrictions on all construction were
lifted. The total in 1945 was 23 percent higher than
in the preceding year.
Though the Bureau of Labor Statistics index of
residential rents moves within a narrower range
than the index of new dwelling units for which
permits were issued, it follows approximately the
same cyclical phases, except in wartime. For
example, in 1942 the rent index reached a 10-year
high and remained at almost that level through
1945, whereas the index of new dwelling units
decreased sharply in each year from 1942 through
1944. Increased demand, coupled with curtailment
of all but the most essential building, tended to
push up rents. Undoubtedly, without rent control

1 Includes number of new fam ily dwelling units in the 257 cities for which
Federal construction contracts were awarded.
8 Includes 1- and 2-family dwellings with stores.
s Includes multifamily dwellings with stores.




1942, the rent indexes for that and following years
would have been considerably higher.
Single-family houses formed a higher proportion
(79 percent) of the new dwellings in the 257 cities
in 1945 than in any other year of active building
shown in table 9. Two-family and multifamily
dwellings, which were relatively popular during
most of the 1920's, made up only 8 percent and 13
percent, respectively, of the total in the last war
year.

All urban areas, 1942-45
For the period beginning with 1942, the first year
after the United States entered World War II,
detailed estimates of city building construction are
available for all urban areas of the country. Prior
to 1942, data presented were a compilation of build­
ing permit reports received from a number of co­
operating cities. The Bureau of Labor Statistics
began the regular collection of these data in 1920,
at first including only the larger cities. Coverage
kept expanding until (beginning in 1942) the num­
ber of cities reporting contained between 80 and 85
percent of the entire urban population, providing
sufficient information to form the basis for total
urban estimates.9 A t present, more than 2,500
cities cooperate.
The urban area, by Census definition, comprises
all incorporated places with a population of 2,500
or more in 1940 and, by special rule, a small number
of unincorporated civil divisions.
Non-Federal
(private, and State and local government) urban
building construction is estimated from the buildingpermit records which are collected by the Bureau
directly from local building officials in every State
except Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New
York, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, where
State departments of labor collect and forward the
data to the Bureau. Estimates of federally financed
building construction in urban areas are made from
the notifications of construction contracts awarded,
which are obtained by the Bureau from other
Federal agencies.
Valuation figures, the basis for statements con­
cerning value, are derived from estimates of con­
struction cost made by prospective builders when
applying for permits to build, and the value o f
contracts awarded by the Federal Government.
No land costs are included. Unless otherwise in9 The method of estimating the total urban building volume is essentially
the same as that used to obtain the housing volume in all urban areas,
which is explained on pp. 28 and 23.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

dicated,

only building construction within the
corporate limits of cities in urban areas is included in
the tabulations in this section.

Comparison by type o f building.— Permits issued
and contracts awarded for new buildings as against
additions, alterations, and repairs, represented 90
percent of the total valuation of all urban building
construction in 1942, compared with 81 percent in
1943, 71 percent in 1944, and 76 percent in 1945.
In contrast to the sharp drop (58 percent) in new
construction from 1942 to 1943, valuations of
additions, alterations, and repairs as a whole
decreased only 14 percent. From 1943 to 1944 new
construction continued downward another 23 per­
cent, while addition, alteration, and repair valua­
tions rose 32 percent. Both categories increased
from 1944 to 1945— new construction by 90 percent
and additions, alterations, and repairs by 50 per­
cent.
Separating the residential additions, alterations,
and repairs from the nonresidential, it is significant
that there was a rise of 10 percent in valuations in
the former between 1942 and 1943, but a decrease of
29 percent in the latter. In the last 2 years of the

war, however, both residential and nonresidential
additions, alterations, and repairs increased. T o
some extent, the continued rise from year to year
in valuations of residential additions, alterations,
and repairs reflects increased emphasis by the
National Housing Agency on using existing struc­
tures for housing in-migrant war workers. On
the other hand, the decline of nonresidential ad­
dition, alteration, and repair valuations in 1943
was probably due in part to more extreme reduc­
tions for nonresidential than residential building
repairs under W PB Conservation Order L-41,
issued in April 1942.
In 1944, substantial increases were reported in
valuations for additions, alterations, and repairs on
both residential and nonresidential buildings. The
cumulating volume of old buildings in need of
repair, as less new construction was started, prob­
ably resulted in greater leniency in authorizing
maintenance and repair work on commercial and
industrial' buildings. In 1945, owing to revocation
of the construction limitation order in the last
quarter of the year, the valuation figures rose even
more sharply^—39 percent for residential and 59

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

percent for nonresidential additions, alterations,
and repairs.
Of the new building total in 1942, 62 percent
consisted of nonresidential construction, chiefly
because the federally financed industrial facilities
program was then at its peak and the War Produc­
tion Board drastically curtailed the volume of
privately financed residential construction early in
the year. By the end of 1942, the bulk of the
industrial facilities program was under way; con­
sequently, in 1943 well over half the new building
valuation was for residential construction. Non­
residential building valuations maintained the same
dollar volume in 1944, but residential construction
continued to decline. Both types of building nearly
doubled in the following year, but nonresidential
comprised 56 percent of all new building valuations
in both 1944 and 1945.
The valuation of urban nonresidential buildings
financed with Federal funds dropped 74 percent
from 1942 to 1943, and continued to decline, though
not so markedly, in 1944 and 1945. Nonfederally
Table 12.— Indexes

financed building also decreased in 1943 (more than
50 percent), but the following year, it turned
upward; and in 1945 the dollar volume was almost
3 times greater than in 1944.
Factory buildings, both federally and non­
federally financed, accounted for most of the fall in
nonresidential valuations from the 1942 peak, and
figured largely in the sharp recovery in private non­
residential building after VJ-day. Privately fin­
anced stores and warehouses, office buildings,
garages and service stations, schools and libraries,
and public utility buildings, followed the same
general movement as all new nonresidential build­
ing financed with non-Federal funds. The valuation
of institutional buildings, on the other hand, was
maintained at approximately the same level through­
out the war years, chiefly as a result of the hospital
program of the Federal Works Agency. As a result
of increased recognition o f the importance of recrea­
tion facilities and community centers in crowded
war production areas, amusement and recreation

construction which showed an increase in dollar
volume in each of the 4 years under discussion.
Permits were issued in urban areas for propor­
tionately fewer private single-family homes in 1943
than in any of the other war years. (See chart 7.)
This shift toward two-family and multifamily
dwellings (which comprised about a third of all
private units in 1943) was caused principally by
increased construction of war rental housing under

section 608, title V I, of the National Housing Act.
Section 608 was added to the act in M ay 1942, and
authorized the insurance of mortgages on largescale rental projects for war workers. It made
liberal financial arrangements available for multi­
family rental projects, “ having in mind the econ­
omies in use of critical material which generally are
represented in this type of construction as compared
with single-family dwellings/’1 By 1945, less than

two-fifths. In 1945 public housing accounted for
less than a tenth of the total, largely as a result of
prompt action on the part of the Federal Public
Housing Authority in canceling as many war hous­

the end of the war became imminent.

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

Comparison by months.— The monthly volume of
urban building construction, for which permits were
issued or construction contracts were awarded
during the years of W orld War II, reached its peak
of 332 million dollars in February 1942. In April,
when the War Production Board issued Conser­
vation Order L-41 halting all nonessential con­
struction, permit valuations were only slightly
under the peak. By August 1942 the volume was
about half the February high, and during the rest
of the year and all of 1943 it remained almost
constant at slightly over 100 million dollars a
month. In 1944, the monthly average was a little
over 90 million dollars; and January 1945 valua­
tions of 66 million dollars were the lowest for any
month during the entire war period. From that
date on there was an almost continuous upward
movement in monthly valuations. Seasonal influ­
ences in the earlier months of 1945; VE-day in May,
with subsequent partial relaxation of controls over
construction; VJ-day in August, clearing the way
for total reconversion; complete removal of con­
struction limitation orders in October— all played
a part in causing urban building construction to
more than quadruple by the end of the year. The
December 1945 total of 304 million dollars was only
9 percent under the wartime high.
Residential construction volume varied from 127
million dollars in February 1942 to about a ninth of
that amount (15 million dollars) in January 1945.
Nonresidential building showed about as great a
fluctuation— monthly totals ranging from a peak
of 226 million dollars in July 1942 to 26 million
dollars in February 1944. The volume of additions,
alterations, and repairs, on the other hand, moved
within a much narrower range than valuations for
new buildings. From the low (12 million dollars)
reported in January 1943, the rise in addition, alter­
ation, and repair work was almost constant, except
for seasonal variations, and reached the peak (58
million dollars) for the 4 years in October 1945.
The relative importance of the Federal war con­
struction program in the monthly volume of urban
building construction was considerably less after
1942. In 1942 Federal valuations accounted for
more than half the urban total, in each of 9 months,
and in M ay and July they were much more than
twice the non-Federal valuations. In contrast,
from April 1943 on, the non-Federal exceeded
Federal figures. By December 1945, Federal build­
ing valuations (2 million dollars) were only a very



small fraction of non-Federal valuations (302 million
dollars).

New Housing Units in Nonfarm Areas
Estimates of new housing construction— ordi­
narily comprising the largest segment of total build­
ing construction (discussed in the preceding section)
— are made by the Bureau of Labor Statistics for
the entire nonfarm area.
The dwelling units
covered are housekeeping units in new structures.
Units provided by conversion of existing structures
at the original site, or nonhousekeeping units such
as those in dormitories, barracks, rooming houses,
or hotels, are excluded.

Estimating dwellings started
The “ nonfarm area” consists of all urban and
rural nonfarm places. The urban designation, as
previously stated, 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 unincor­
porated civil divisions. Rural nonfarm housing
construction includes all but farm homes in unin­
corporated areas and incorporated places of less
than 2,500 population.
A permit to build is required in the majority of
cities and in many rural incorporated and a few
unincorporated areas. The size, and the builder's
estimate of the cost, of the proposed structure are
usually recorded on these permits, thereby provid­
ing a clear indication of the volume of building to
be carried on in the locality. The Bureau receives
summaries of building-permit records not only from
the cooperating cities previously mentioned, but
also from 1,700 rural incorporated places, and about
350 unincorporated areas— that is, from practically
every place in the Nation that requires a permit to
build.
Using the building-permit reports as a basis, an
estimate of the monthly volume of privately fin­
anced housing in urban areas is made first and then
combined with a similar estimate for rural nonfarm
places. T o derive the urban estimate, the cities
reporting building-permit data to the Bureau are
arrayed by State, population-size group, and
location inside or outside a metropolitan district;
the volume and value of residential building during
the month is summarized for each class of place.
The estimate for all urban areas in the country is
prepared by the simple method of applying to the
volume of housing reported for each type of place,

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

23

the ratio of the total number of such places in the
country to the number reporting that month. The
ratio is usually 1 for places of 25,000 population
or over, because reports are received monthly from
virtually all of these. For places of 5,000 to 25,000
population the number of reports is great enough so
that the multiplying figure is seldom over 3, and for
places of 2,500 to 5,000 population it is rarely over 8.
The estimates are further adjusted for lapsed
building permits and time lag between issuance of
permits and start of construction, beginning with
1945, when these influences became really significant.
Prior to 1945, the issuance of a building permit was

almost assuredly a sign that construction would be
started immediately. Information on lapse and lag
in building permits is derived from periodic surveys
in representative areas over the entire country.
The volume of rural-nonfarm housing started
prior to 1945 was determined with the use of a
bench-mark estimate for each geographic division
as of the last quarter of 1939, and a ratio of ruralnonfarm to urban residential building, as derived
from detailed housing enumerations made by the
Bureau between 1940 and 1942 in 138 defense areas.
The bench mark and ratio were used, together with
trend information revealed by the volume of hous­

ing in the rural-type places reporting building per­
mit data to the Bureau each month, to derive the
estimate of rural-nonfarm housing started.
The current method of determining the amount
of rural-nonfarm housing started, beginning with
1945 data, is to apply to the estimate for all urban
places the ratio of the number of units started in
the rural-nonfarm areas to the number in urban
places in a carefully selected group of 90 repre­
sentative areas. The rural-nonfarm estimate is
then added to the urban estimate to obtain the
figure for the entire nonfarm area.

Data on publicly financed units are enumerations
rather than estimates. The number and location of
public units started are reported to the Bureau
monthly by the agencies awarding the contracts or
performing the work, and are added to the estimates
for privately financed units to obtain a total of all
nonfarm housing started during the month.
Monthly estimates of the number of new family
dwelling units started in all urban and rural-non­
farm areas are available for the period beginning
with 1939 (table 15); annual figures for the nonfarm
area as a whole date from 1910 (table 13).




24

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

Trends from 1910 through 1945
The wide range over which construction of new
nonfarm housing has varied in the 36-year period
from 1910 through 1945 is shown in table 13. The
annual volume dropped from a total of 475,000
units started in 1910 to 120,000 in the war year
1918, increased to 937,000 in 1925, the highest level
recorded to date, declined again to the depression
low of only 93,000 units in 1933, and recovered to
a total of 715,000 in 1941, just before the United
States entered World War II. The 1944 total
(169,000) was the low point for the war years, but
by 1945 the annual volume had increased again to
226,000.
T able

Another indication of the year-to-year variations
in the amount of new housing started in nonfarm
areas may be seen in chart 9. During 1925, for
example, the rate of construction was so high that
113 dwellings were started for each 1,000 of popu­
4
lation, compared with only 1 in 1933, 7 in 1941, and
2 % in 1945.
World Wars I and II had similar effects on the
number of dwellings started in nonfarm areas. 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, as strict priority controls were applied to
conserve scarce labor and materials. The rate of
decline was much greater, however, in 1917-18 than

1 Data for 1920-29 are from National Bureau of Economic Research; data
for 1910-19 and 1930-45 are from Bureau of Labor Statistics and are based
primarily on building permits issued and Federal construction contracts
awarded. No breakdowns are available from 1910-19.

1930 Census; for years 1930-45, on 1940 Census.
2 Includes 1- and 2-family dwellings with stores.
4 Includes multifamily dwellings with stores.
5 In 1945, in order to determine the number of dwelling units actually

started, adjustments were made for lapsed building permits and time lag
between issuance of permits and start of construction. Such adjustments
were not necessary in previous years, since lag and lapse in building permits
were not significant then. Adjusted 1945 figures not available for dwelling

in 1942-43. The reason for this was that during the
Second World War, there were larger numbers of
dislocated people, because of vastly greater pro­
duction needs, more drastic shifts in industry dis­
tribution, and more extensive mushrooming of new
war plants in nonindustrial areas. Thus, construc­
tion of a considerable volume of new homes was
required to house war workers, and the Federal
Government was obliged to participate actively in
providing emergency housing. Well over a third
of all new units started during World War II were

federally financed, whereas very little housing was
federally financed during World War I. The urgent
need for war housing and Federal participation in
the program resulted in a less marked decline in
residential construction during World War II than
many had anticipated.
In fact, housing units financed with public
funds— most of which were defense or war housing
of a temporary nature— increased more rapidly than
private housing from 1939 to 1942. In 1939, 57,000
units, or only about a tenth of the new dwellings in

nonfarm areas, were publicly financed; by 1943, the
proportion was nearly half the total. During the
5-year period 1939-43, over half a million new units
were started with public funds, nearly 200,000 of
which were begun in 1942 alone. After that, the
need for war housing in critical areas declined, and
construction of new public units fell off until, in
1944, less than a fifth (18 percent) of all new dwell­
ings were publicly financed. In 1945, the proportion
was only 8 percent, or 18,000 units.
In spite of the large Federal program to provide
war housing, private builders started the bulk of the
residential building in the defense and war years.
In the 5 years between July 1940 (when housing
T able

was first coordinated with defense activities) and
August 1945 (the end of the war) 1,625,000 pri­
vately financed units were put under construction,
compared with 557,000 public units. Of the private
units, 619,000 were started in 1941— the best homebuilding year since the boom of the 1920’s.
The volume of private dwellings dropped rapidly
during the following 3 years, because of acute short­
ages of both building materials and labor. By 1944,
the annual total was only 139,000 units, less than a
fourth of the 1941 figure and the smallest annual
volume in a decade. In 1945, however, there was a
50-percent rise over the previous year in new private
housing, and 208,000 such units were started.

1 Based on permit valuations adjusted for understatement of construction
costs. Excludes land and other nonconstruction items commonly included
in selling prices.
* Value of Federal construction contracts awarded.

* Estimates for 1945 have been adjusted to allow for lapsed building permits
and time lag between issuance of permits and actual start of construction.
It is believed these influences were negligible prior to 1945.

Monthly variations; influencing legislation
and regulations, 1939-451
1

From the high point of 190,800 in the second
quarter of 1941, the number of privately financed
units started showed a small decline of only 4 per­
cent in the third quarter. The sharp decline (33
percent) from the third to the fourth quarter is
explained in part by normal seasonal tendencies and
in part by the fact that the growing shortages of
strategic materials influenced some builders against
starting new construction until Government policy
and the supply situation became clarified.
In order to assist private builders operating in
areas of acute housing shortage, the Office of Pro­
duction Management (later the War Production
Board) began on September 22, 1941, to grant
priorities assistance in obtaining necessary mater­
ials. The real need for this type of assistance at
that time is shown by the fact that priorities assist­
ance was extended to an estimated 40 percent of all
new units started during the first 3 months of 1942.

The rise in housing construction which followed
the depression years in the 1930’s continued after
the outbreak of war in Europe, as a result of the
increased demand for emergency housing in defense
areas and easier financing through the Federal
Housing Administration, together with generally
improved economic conditions. In 1939, the num­
ber of new family dwelling units started in nonfarm
areas averaged about 43,000 per month. The
monthly figure continued gradually upward in the
succeeding year and a half, except for seasonal
fluctuations, until it reached over 77,000 in June
1941.

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

The growing shortages in critical materials, how­
ever, foreshadowed the halting of all nonessential
residential construction. On April 9,1942, the War
Production Board issued Conservation Order L-41,
prohibiting builders to start, without priorities, any
new residential construction costing $500 or more
(later reduced to $200) during any continuous 12month period. No priorities were necessary to
replace structures 4
'destroyed after December 31,
1941, by fire, flood, tornado, earthquake, act of God,
or the public enemy.” In addition, priority assist­
ance was restricted to units with a sales price not
to exceed $6,000 or a shelter rental not in excess of
$50 per month. The location of any such construc­
tion was also restricted to sites within 2 miles either
of the war industry to be served or of adequate
public transportation.
Shortly after the start of the defense program, it
was recognized that because of the unusual risks
involved, private builders would require encourage­
ment in supplying homes for defense workers in
many areas. Consequently, Congress in March
1941 added title VI to the National Housing Act,
T able

15.— Estimated

which governs the operations of the Federal Hous­
ing Administration.
This amendment allowed
liberal mortgage insurance terms to builders who
would provide low-cost housing to war workers in
specific areas designated by the President.
During 1941 only an estimated 27,800 of the
estimated 220,400 FHA insured units on which
construction was started were insured under title
VI. During 1942, however, private builders took
full advantage of the liberal terms offered, with the
result that an estimated 118,900 units, or 72 percent
of the 165,700 FH A units started, were under title
VI (114,600 under section 603, the March 1941
enactment, and 4,300 under sec. 608, added to the
title in M ay 1942 to provide insured financing o f
war rental housing). Housing insured under title
VI reached peak in 1943 when 145,500 units, or
almost all of the FHA starts, came under that title
(125,500 under sec. 603, and 20,000 under sec. 608).
Insured under titles I and II were 192,600 units
started during 1941, 46,800 units started in 1942,
and less than 700 in 1943. In 1944, all but 200 o f
the 93,300 units started were insured under title V I,

* Estimates are based upon building permits issued and Federal construction
contracts awarded. Data for 1945 have been adjusted to allow for lapsed

building permits and time lag between issuance of permits and start o f
construction. It is believed these influences were negligible prior to 1945.

and by 1945, the estimated 41,200 starts were
divided more equally— 17,300 under title I and II;
23,900 under title VI.
Notwithstanding that private builders began to
curtail their operations late in 1941, their activity
was not seriously affected until the second quarter
of 1942 when Conservation Order L-41 was issued.
The 81,100 private units started during that quarter
were about 25 percent less than during the preceding
3 months and almost 60 percent less than during
the corresponding quarter of 1941. Private activity
continued to decline thereafter, reaching a low of
26,000 units in the last quarter of 1944.
Although the number of privately financed

dwellings started dropped substantially in the
second quarter of 1942, the total nonfarm volume
actually increased (from 138,500 units in the first
quarter to 166,600) because public housing was at
peak. In fact, the 85,500 publicly financed units
started in the second quarter of 1942 exceeded the
private volume. Public housing was fairly well
sustained throughout 1943, but it too dwindled in
1944. The low point was reached in September
1945.
Early in 1940, when the possibility of housing
shortages began to threaten the defense program,
Congress acted to utilize the organization of the
United States Housing Authority to avert this




29

BUILDING CONSTRUCTION

danger by authorizing it to provide homes for
military personnel and defense workers (Pub. L.
671, 76th Cong.). As the war housing program
grew in magnitude, other agencies, notably the
Federal Works Agency which was charged with
administration of funds appropriated under the
Lanham Act, entered this field of activity. By
February 1942, there were 16 different Federal
agencies concerned with war housing construction,
and on February 24, 1942, the National Housing
Agency was created by Executive order, in order to
consolidate these activities. The Federal Public
Housing Authority of the National Housing Agency
became responsible for the construction of all
federally financed nonfarm housing except that
built on military reservations. For various reasons

some projects were assigned for construction to
other agencies, but most projects were constructed
under the direct supervision of the Federal Public
Housing Authority or of local housing authorities.
Funds for publicly financed war housing were
authorized through six major acts and by transfer of
funds authorized by the Congress from other
branches of the Government.
The principal sources of these funds were (1) the
Lanham Act, as amended (Pub. L. 849,76th Cong.),
which authorized the National Housing Adminis­
tration to provide war housing and authorized funds
to be appropriated for this purpose; (2) the tempo­
rary shelter acts (Pub. L. No. 9, No. 73, and No.
353, 76th Cong.) which appropriated money
specifically for temporary housing; (3) USHA

Defense Amendment (Pub. L. 671, 76th Cong.)
which authorized use of funds available to the
United States Housing Authority for war rental
housing; (4) Defense Homes Corporation, loans
obtained from the R FC to build permanent housing
for use of war personnel during the emergency, with
the intention of selling as expeditiously as possible;
and (5) the Arm y-Navy appropriation measure
(Pub. L.781, 76th Cong.) which appropriated funds
to provide rental housing for families of personnel
at Army and N avy bases.
A t the close of 1944, $2,340,712,028 had been
committed or allotted for war housing from the
total public funds ($2,355,348,894) made available,
leaving $14,636,866 to carry on the program.
On April 25,1945, and prior to the termination of

hostilities, the Congress appropriated $84,373,000
for war housing to be constructed under the pro­
visions of title I of the Lanham Act. However,
the suspension of war housing projects after VJ-day
affected savings totaling $77,727,000.
Title V was added to the Lanham A ct by Public
Law 87, approved June 23, 1945. This law author­
ized the Federal Works Administrator to provide
housing for distressed families of servicemen and
for veterans and their families who were affected by
evictions or other unusual hardships in those areas
where their needs could not be met through utili­
zation of the existing housing supply. Title I funds
were made available for title V purposes.
Additional funds for carrying out the provisions
of title V of the Lanham A ct were provided by

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

Congress in December 1945 through two measures;
the Mead-Lanham resolution, Public Law 292,
which authorized appropriations of $160,000,000,
and the first deficiency appropriation for the fiscal
year 1946 (Public Law 269), which appropriated
$191,900,000 for veterans housing.
N o new permanent housing could be constructed
under title V as amended. Temporary housing only
could be provided by moving existing temporary
housing from areas where the war need had passed
to areas where such housing was needed for veterans,
or by converting surplus Federal structures or facili­
ties into temporary housing for veterans. Stimu­
lated by the initiation of this program, the monthly
volume of publicly financed dwellings started, began
to recover slightly in the closing months of 1945.
From a peak of 59,600 in 1941, the monthly
average of total nonfarm starts dropped to 41,400
in 1942 and to 29,200 in 1943, reaching a low of
14,100 in 1944. B y 1944 the war housing program
for in-migrant war workers (H - l housing) had
passed its peak. T o meet general civilian needs
and to establish the pattern for the expected transi­
tion period, the National Housing Agency initiated
two new programs: H -2 housing, which permitted
construction of dwelling units of up to $8,000 valu­
ation under certain conditions of community hard­
ship; and the H -3 program, which was designed to
relieve individual hardship cases.

The H -2 program, however, was brought up
short at the start of 1945 by further demands of
war. After the German counter attack in December
1944, the Area Production Urgency Committees of
the War Production Board turned down most
applications to start H -2 housing. It was feared
that the Nation did not have the manpower to
build houses and also to keep war production going
at top speed. H -3 housing went forward under
blanket authorization granted by most A P U C ’s,
up to $10,000 construction cost.
With the defeat of Germany in M ay 1945 the
tempo of housing activity under the H -2 and H -3
programs was stepped up, and the number of non­
farm dwelling units started advanced from 27,900
in the first quarter to 55,200 in the second quarter
of 1945. These transitional programs also paved
the way in the period immediately following Japan’s
surrender; third quarter starts were sustained at
about the same level (57,400).
The lifting of all wartime controls in October
resulted in an unprecedented increase in home
building, almost all of which was privately financed.
Contrary to the usual seasonal slump during the
fall and winter months, the total number of nonfarm
dwelling units started reached 85,200 in the fourth
quarter, an increase of 48 percent over the preceding
3 months.

Trends in Private Building Construction Costs
The Bureau of Labor Statistics does not compile
a comprehensive index of construction costs. It
makes a composite index o f average hourly earnings
on private building construction and of wholesale
construction material prices, which, while incom­
plete, gives an approximation of changes in con­
struction costs. The composite index measures only
reported changes in labor and material costs and
does not reflect construction cost changes resulting
from variations in the efficiency of labor and man­
agement, in competitive markets, in overhead costs,
nor does it reflect the payment of black-market
prices.
Further indications of fluctuations in construction
costs (of residential building only) may be obtained
from two other series, one showing the average per­
mit valuation of all types of family dwellings in 257



cities, and the other showing the average “ estimated
construction cost” for private single-family dwelling
units in nonfarm areas.
The permit valuation figure is simply an average
of the estimated construction cost data recorded on
the building-permit reports received by the Bureau,
together with the value of the Federal construction
contracts awarded in the 257 cities.
For a number of reasons the estimates of con­
struction costs which are given by builders when
applying for building permits generally understate
actual costs. The results of a prewar study made
by the Bureau indicate that actual costs (i.e., cost
of labor, material, and the builder’s overhead and
profit chargeable directly to the construction
project, but excluding cost of land and site improve­
ments) averaged 15.5 percent more than the valu­

ations entered on permit records. More recent
surveys revealed that in the period SeptemberDecember 1945 the understatement of permit valu­
ations was around 25 percent. Consequently, to
obtain the “ average estimated construction cost”
series, the valuation figures recorded on the building
permit reports for years prior to 1941 were increased
by 15.5 percent. From 1941 on the percentage
added to the permit valuation was gradually in­
creased, on practically a straight-line basis, until it
reached 25 percent in September 1945.
In interpreting both of these series of averages^
it should be noted that they do not represent fluc^
tuations in the cost of building identical units of
housing, but show fluctuations only in the estimated
construction costs of all those units for which
permits were issued.

one-third in the volume of private nonresidential
building on which higher wage rates generally pre­
vail. Furthermore, as a result of a 5-percent de­
crease in material prices in 1938 the composite index
was 3 percent lower than in 1937.
Increases in both basic wage rates and the relative
amount of overtime worked at premium rates, in
addition to rising material prices, notably for
lumber, resulted in an increase of 24 percent in
construction costs between 1938 and 1942. Brisk
competition for construction workers from publicly
financed ivar construction projects, coupled with
the demands from war industries and the military
services, 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

Construction costs for privately financed build­

hourly earnings and wholesale prices of building
materials, rose 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 gradually increased after 1934,
rose 9 percent between 1937 and 1938, average
hourly earnings remained virtually unchanged.

shift to the equivalent of basic union wage rates
affected building costs between 1940 and 1942 may
be seen by comparing the 10-percent increase in
union wage rates with the 20-percent rise in average
hourly earnings.
The composite index rose 7 percent between 1940
and 1941 and over 9 percent between 1941 and 1942.
In both 1943 and 1944, however, the annual rate of
increase was down to 4 percent, partly because wage
and price controls were put into effect less than a
year after the war started. In 1945 the index was
only 3 percent higher than in 1944, owing in part to
reductions in overtime work and retention of wage
and price controls after VJ-day.
The wholesale prices of building materials rose
far less in World War II than during World War I.
Comparable figures show a 92-percent rise in whole­
sale prices of building materials from July 1914 to

1 Includes the following programs: (1) Programs from regular Federal
appropriations, (2) Public W orks Administration, (3) United States Hous­
ing Authority, (4) Defense Plant Corporation, (5) War Public W orks
(Lanham A ct projects), (6) Rural Electrification Administration (loans).
2 Computed by dividing reported annual pay rolls and number of man-hours
worked during the year by 52. This method is used primarily because hours
and earnings on Federal construction projects are reported by accounting
months, rather than by calendar months. Thus all contractors do not
report for uniform pay periods during any given month; some may include

data for 4 weeks and others for 5. In addition, averages in a given
month are affected substantially by shifts in the geographic distribution of
projects under way, especially when the number of projects in a category is
small. Consequently, average hours and earnings cannot be computed
accurately on a current weekly basis. Most of the bias resulting from both
the reporting procedures and the project location, however, is removed when
data for the year as a whole are used to obtain averages.
* Hourly earnings when multiplied by weekly hours of work may not
exactly equal weekly earnings because of rounding.

November 1918 against a 31-percent increase be­
tween August 1939 and August 1945. The effective­
ness of price control during World War II may be
judged from the fact that, although average prices
for all building material rose 23 percent from August
1939 to March 1942, the rise in prices from March
1942 to the end of hostilities under operation of the

General Maximum Price Regulation1 was only
2
7 percent.




12 See Monthly Labor Review, March 1944 (p. 640): Market Prices of
Building Materials in Two Wars. 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 1943-45 are actual averages computed from a sample of quo­
tations 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 distribution 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 esti­

mates for 1934 to 1942 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 Representative of rates effective in midsummer.
* 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.”
4 Includes rodmen prior to 1940.

Residential construction costs

Conservation Order L-41 was issued in April
1942, restricting home building to $500 (later $200),
with exceptions, unless priorities were granted. In
addition, priorities were issued only where the sales
price of a unit did not exceed $6,000. The effects
of this order were to force home construction still
more into the lower-cost brackets and to decrease
further the “ average cost” figure to $3,762 in the
third quarter of 1942.

In response to a general rise in prices, the average
construction cost of privately financed single-family
dwelling units rose gradually from $3,973 in the first
quarter of 1940 to $4,303 in the third quarter of
1941 (table 24). N o cost limitation for private war
housing prevailed prior to the establishment of the
priority system in September 1941, but the limita­
tion of a sales price of $6,000 or an equivalent shelter
rent not to exceed $50 a month was established at
that time by the Office of Production Management
and the Division of Defense Housing Coordination.
Immediately after the initiation of this priority
system, the average estimated construction cost
figure began to drop slightly— to $4,226 in the final
quarter of 1941 and to $4,011 in the first 3 months
of 1942.



Undoubtedly some homes continued to be built
in the higher-cost brackets. There are, however,
several explanations for this. Homes built to re­
place those destroyed by fire, tornado, etc., were
exempted from L-41. Evasion of priority regula­
tions was present to some degree. Instances are
known in which less responsible speculative builders
sold basic houses at the maximum price permitted,

making an extra charge for such essential items as
connection to the public water system, but the
extent of such practices is not known. Neverthe­
less, after April 1942, the trend in construction costs
was generally downward, indicating the increasing
effectiveness of administrative control of housing
priorities. The low point was reached in the fourth
quarter of 1944 when construction cost averaged
$3,223.
In M ay 1945, construction controls were eased
by amendment to L -4 1 ; the limitation of $200 on
residential building that could be started without
permission of the War Production Board was raised
to $1,000 in the case of 1-family houses. In addi­
tion, more housing was being started in the first
part of 1945 under the H -2 and H -3 programs.
H -2 housing had a sales limit of $8,000 (compared
with $6,000 for H - l housing, which had predomi­
nated previously), and there was no cost limit under
the H -3 program. These events influenced average
construction cost estimates, resulting in a 17-percent
rise between the first and second quarters of 1945
(from $3,554 to $4,167).

construction cost per private 1-family dwelling unit
jumped another 18 percent, to $5,307, from VJ-day
to the final quarter of 1945.
Some idea of variations over the years in the cost
of erecting residential buildings may be obtained
also from table 25. Average permit valuations per
new dwelling unit in* 257 cities declined steadily
from the 1920,s to the depression year 1933, and
recovered somewhat in the late 1930’s. During the

37

TRENDS IN PRIVATE BUILDING COSTS

war years, the average valuations of 1-family dwell­
ings followed the same general movement already
described for estimated construction costs. In the
case of all types of structures, the average permit
valuation figure decreased steadily from 1939 to

1943, when it reached the lowest amount recorded
within the 25-year period 1921-45. The average
valuations for 1-family dwellings decreased more
sharply in 1943 than those for 2-family and multi­
family dwellings. This was caused largely by the

multifamily, exceeded those for the recovery years
1936-37.

Shifts in Location of Construction Activity in Wartime
The location as well as the volume of construction
activity was sharply altered during the war period.
Locality changes consisted chiefly of two general
types: (1) shifts from densely to more sparsely
populated places, and (2) movements from one
section of the country to another.

Flow Between Large and Small Places
Urban-rural movements
Housing trends are an indicator of the urbanrural flow of building activity in the war years.
Thousands of new homes were built near military or
essential industrial establishments, many of which
were of necessity located outside of urban areas.



About 39 percent of the new nonfarm houses
started in 1941 were located in rural areas, whereas,
in 1942 the proportion of rural-nonfarm to all hous­
ing had increased to 43 percent. By 1943 it had
decreased again to 40 percent. The shift from urban
to rural in 1942 and from rural to urban in 1943
reflects mainly the effects of the public war housing
program. In 1942, several extremely large projects,
notably the Vanport City (Oreg.) project contain­
ing 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

38

CONSTRUCTION IN W AR YEARS 1942-45

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.

In 1944, the proportion of all nonfarm housing to
be started in rural areas was down to 32 percent,
but there was a slight increase to 36 percent in 1945.
Since nine out of ten homes in 1945 were to be

WARTIME SHIFTS IN CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

financed from private funds, it appears that more
private owners, too, were tending to build outside
city limits. One explanation of this growing trend1
3
is that land prices are more reasonable in outlying
areas. The increasing development of well-planned
neighborhoods with nearby community centers,
together with greater availability of quick trans­
portation to downtown districts, is making suburban
living more and more attractive.

Size-of-city shifts
Within the urban area also, there were similar
movements in building activity between large and
small places during the war years. In 1942, 29
percent of the urban building permit valuation
figure was reported for cities of 2,500 to 25,000
population;1 cities in the 25,000 to 100,000 popu­
4
lation group accounted for 23 percent and those
with more than 100,000 population for 48 percent
of the total. The proportions in 1944 for the re­
spective city-size groups were 25,20, and 55 percent.
This shift in building activity from small to large
cities is explained partly by the fact that a great
part of Federal wartime construction, even within
city limits, was near army camps, powder plants,
or other war establishments necessarily located in
sparsely populated sections of the country. Con­
sequently, the greater proportion of Federal money
put into urban building in 1942 influenced the flow
of construction in that year away from the larger
cities to the smaller places. The reverse was true,
of course, in 1944 when most war construction was
completed. In 1942 over 60 percent of the dollar
volume of urban building was for Federal con­
struction, compared with 32 percent in 1944.
Another cause for shifts between different citysize groups is the varying proportion from one year
to another in the types of building construction for
which permits are issued. For example, in 1942
only a tenth of urban permit valuations were for
additions, alterations, and repair work; whereas, in
1944 this category comprised almost three-tenths
of the total. Well over half of all such valuations
were, in each year under discussion, reported for
cities of 100,000 or more population. Consequently,
in a year (like 1944) when the proportion of addi­
tions, alterations, and repairs is high relative to the
1 Preliminary results of a survey conducted in 1946 in 90 representative
8
areas bear out the conclusion that there is an increasing tendency to build a
greater proportion of nonfarm housing in rural than in urban areas.

volume of new building undertaken, there is a
tendency for the largest cities to be responsible for
the greater share of permits issued.
In 1945, when additions, alterations, and repairs
accounted for a fourth of all urban building activity
and 53 percent of the work was being done in cities
of over 100,000 population, those cities reported 49
percent of the total dollar volume of building per­
mits granted. Cities with population from 25,000
to 100,000 reported 22 percent, and those in the
2.500 to 25,000 population group, 29 percent of the
total.

Geographic Shifts
Between States
Analysis of the amount of new housing put under
construction during the period 1940-45, in com­
parison with the number of homes already standing
in 1940 in each State, gives a clear indication of
interstate shifts in residential building in the defense
and war years.
The estimated number of new nonfarm family
dwelling units for which permits were issued or con­
struction contracts were awarded in the years
1940-45 totaled 2,580,000, about 9 percent of the
29,683,000 units standing in April 1940.1 Home
5
building during this 6-year period tended to con­
centrate along the eastern and western seaboards,
the Great Lakes, and in the Southwest. These
regions were the leading centers of residential con­
struction for two important reasons— (1) they
accommodated most of the war activities requiring
workers from outside areas, and (2) some of them
already accounted for a large portion of existing
housing, which made replacement demand greater
there than in other localities.
The concentration is shown in chart 10 on
page 41. From map* ‘A ” it is readily apparent
that California outranked all other States with
respect to the number of new family dwelling units
for which permits were issued during 1940-45.
California alone was responsible for 419,100 units—
16 percent of the total. Texas followed with
175.500 units, or 7 percent. The 10 leading States
(California, Texas, Michigan, New York, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Virginia, Washington, Illinois, and
Florida) accounted for almost 60 percent of the
total, or 1,513,000 units. Of these States, all except
Florida, Virginia, and Washington were also among

the 10 highest in regard to the number of dwelling
units in existence in April 1940. However, there
was a great concentration of military activities in
Florida and Virginia and of ship and aircraft con­
struction in Washington, which was responsible for
a large amount of homebuilding to accommodate
in-migrants.
The number of new nonfarm dwelling units for
which permits were issued in each State during
1940-45 as a proportion of the number of dwellings
already standing in April 1940 is shown in map “ B .”
This presentation is particularly significant in
pointing out areas of in-migrant need, since it
neutralizes the factor of replacement demand. For
instance, there were more units standing in 1940
in New York than in any other State (3,827,054),
and it ranked fourth in the amount of home building
during 1940-45; however, the number of dwellings
started in that State during the 6-year period was
only 4 percent of existing housing, indicating
relative stability in wartime population.
On the other hand, in Nevada, which had the
fewest units standing (31,993), there was propor­
tionately more housing put under construction than
in any other State (29 percent of existing housing).
Replacement demand for homes in Nevada was
negligible, since there were so few houses in exis­
tence. This condition, together with the fact that
the population o f Nevada increased 45 percent from
1940 to 1945, makes it apparent that most of the
new dwellings put under construction during the
6-year period were to take care of families coming
into the State from other areas. Reports of Federal
contracts awarded in October 1941 for the con­
struction of a 126-million-dollar basic magnesium



plant near Las Vegas, which first required numerous
construction workers and later many operational
employees, further substantiates this conclusion.
As would be expected from the foregoing discus­
sion of nonfarm housing, California was also the
leading State in the dollar volume of building per­
mits issued during the war years 1942-45. Over
17 percent, or 1.2 billion of the 7 billion dollar per­
mit valuation figure for all urban areas, was re­
ported for California alone. Michigan and Illinois
(each accounting for around 7 percent of the total)
ranked second and third, respectively, with 507
million and 468 million dollars.
N ot only did California lead in the amount of
total permit valuations, but it was in first place with
respect to all classes of building construction:
New residential building 522 million dollars (21 per­
cent of the 2.5 billion dollars estimated for new
residential building in all urban areas); new nonresidential building, 513 million dollars (16 percent
of the 3.2-billion-dollar total); and additions, al­
terations, and repairs, 173 million dollars (13 per­
cent of 1.3-billion-dollar total). Michigan, with
225 million dollars (9 percent of all urban) was
second in the new residential building category.
Second place for new nonresidential building went
to Pennsylvania (250 million dollars, 8 percent of
total), and for additions, alterations, and repairs to
New York (123 million dollars, 9 percent of all
urban).

From Region to Region
The impact of war upon construction activity in
different sections of the country is reflected in the
altered distribution of new nonfarm housing from

WARTIME SHIFTS IN CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

W est reflected the large population increases which
took place there during the war years. Thousands
of workers, many of them from farms, migrated to
the leading Pacific Coast cities to work in airplane
factories, shipyards, and other war industries.
From 1940 to 1945, the population of the Pacific
States increased 25 percent, or 2.4 million. Further­
more, increased, employment of the native popu­
lation enabled more people to afford their own
homes or apartments.
In 1945, the employment rise after the end of the
war in the nonmanufacturing industries— primarily
the services and trades— almost offset the sub­
stantial declines in shipbuilding, airframe, and other
manufacturing employment on the Pacific Coast
following VJ-day. In addition, the housing needs

of returning veterans and their families who had
been living doubled up more than compensated for
any out-migrants who may have left as the war
industries shut down. Although the substantial
number of 68,200 units, or 28 percent of all nonfarm
houses, were to be started in the Pacific States in
1945 (almost four-fifths of them in California alone),
the housing shortage remained acute throughout
that region.
Only the Western and the Southern States, where
most of the military installations were located,
showed population increases between 1940 and
1945. The northern part of the country in particu­
lar experienced declines, as inductions depleted the
civilian population and war workers migrated to
new war centers. The Middle Atlantic States

showed a million and a half decrease in population
during this period, and the West North Central
States declined over a million.
Reflecting increases in population, the South
Atlantic States ranked next to the Pacific in the
total number of new dwelling units for which per­
mits were issued or contracts awarded in 1945
(43,500). The East North Central States were
third with 41,600 units. Housing shortages in those
areas had been accumulating throughout the war
years for various reasons and remained critical at
the end of 1945. In Chicago, for instance, housing
shortages were caused by enlargement of the
packing and chemical industries, as well as ord­
nance, the transfer of Federal agencies from Wash­
ington, and the expansion of war agencies already
in the city. In Detroit, the shortage resulted
partly from expansion of the aircraft engine indus­
try. Ohio, the rubber center of the world, with its

wartime production of steel, machinery, chemical
products, and aircraft, also experienced a housing
shortage which was still unrelieved as the war
ended.
The smallest proportion of new nonfarm homes
in 1945, on the other hand, were to be started in
New England— 5,500 units, or 2 percent of the
national total. This compares with 30,400 units
(5 percent of total) in 1940. In that year the
Mountain States ranked lowest, with 21,600 new
dwellings. Part of the decline in the amount of
new housing to be built in New England was owing
to a 2-percent decrease in population from 1940 to
1945. Although there was little migration into
New England compared with most other regions,
mainly because of less new industry, the housing
shortage remained acute in 1945 as veterans returned
in increasing numbers and principal industrial
centers began to convert to peacetime production.
