Preface

The evolution o f the U. S* Department o f Labor*s Bureau o f Labor Statistics*
building p erm it reportin g system m ir r o r s the spreading pattern of urbanization fn
the United Statese
To m eet the demands of a con g ression a l com m ittee investigating
the c r it ic a l housing shortage during and im m ediately after W orld War I, the Bureau,
in 1920, began collectin g re p o rts fro m a few hundred urban o fficia ls who issu ed
building perm its*
In the intervening y ea rs since 1920, the Bureau has published a
s e r ie s o f bulletins assem bling the inform ation it has collectexLoir"all types o f building
con stru ction fo r which lo c a l com m unities requ ire perm its*
Building p erm its are essen tia lly instrum ents fo r en forcin g zoning re strictio n s
and structural requirem ents related to public safety, fir e prevention, and sanitation*
As c itie s and towns becam e m o re densely populated and as m ore safeguards w ere
devised to p ro te ct the public fr o m the potential hazards of living in in crea sin g ly
com p lex urban environm ents, building p erm it system s spread rapidly. By 1956, about
7, 000 p e rm it-issu in g p la ce s w ere reporting to the Bureau.
The presen t bulletin, which continues the s e r ie s on building p e rm its, is designed
as a r e s e a r c h tool as w ell as a statistical handbook.
It p resen ts the b a sic data fo r
maintaining the continuity o f the s e rie s through its h istory of continuous expansion.
In addition, it presen ts the sta tistics in com plete detail fo r the y ea rs 1954-56 and in­
terp rets these data in the p e rsp e ctiv e of the tim es.
A set of six tables containing
annual su m m aries fo r 1957 and 1958 has been added to supplement the statistical r e c ­
ord , although the analysis o f the building perm it data does not extend beyond 1956.
This bulletin was prep a red in the Bureau*s D ivision of Construction Statistics
by Adela L. Sh esser. Henry F. Haase and M arvin W ilkerson developed the statistical
techniques fo r co lle ctin g , coordin atin g, and sum m arizing the growing body of buildingp erm it re p o rts on which the tabulations in the bulletin are based.

Labor*s Bureau of Labor S ta tistics, p r o ­

a v a i l a b l e fo r lo c a litie s and a re a s, as
w ell as on a national basis*
They are
the main sou rce of the Bureau*s m onthly
s e r ie s on the num ber o f new n o n f a r m
dw elling units started, and in th em selves
are an im portant econ om ic i n d i c a t o r .

BACKGROUND AND SCOPE OF THE SERIES

The Bureau*s s e r ie s on b u i l d i n g
c o n s t r u c t i o n for which p erm its w ere
issu ed has been expanded and im p rov ed
continuously s i n c e its o r i g i n in 1920.
Although the num ber o f p la ce s reportin g
building p erm it data to the Bureau in­
c r e a s e d each y e a r, a s e r ie s s h o w i n g
annual volum e fo r 257 la rge citie s was
used fr o m 1921 until 1929 to relate c u r ­
rent activity to past p erform a n ce in city
b u i l d i n g con stru ction .
Beginning with
1929, building con stru ction trends w ere
re fle cte d m ore accu ra tely through indexes
based on data fro m a la rg e r and m ore
represen ta tive s a m p l e o f in corp ora ted
p la ce s .
By 1942, the num ber of re p o rt­
ing p la ces had grown large e n o u g h to
provide the ba sis for estim ates cov erin g
the entire urban a rea o f the cou n try, as
defined in the 1940 C ensus.

S i n c e the building p erm it activity
s e r ie s gives i n s i g h t into the e con om ic
im pact on lo c a l a reas o f changes in the
geograph ic spread of building co n stru c­
tion (resid en tia l and n on resid en tia l), it
is an e sp e c ia lly valuable to o l fo r shaping
p o l i c y and adm inistrative d e cisio n s by
State and lo c a l governm ents and planning
a g en cies. It a lso p rov id es national agen­
c ie s and r e s e a r c h groups with inform ation
on im portant area deviation s, which in
con stru ction , is e s s e n t i a l fo r making
d e cisio n s on a national sca le that take
into account region a l or lo c a l situations.
B usiness fir m s and labor g r o u p s also
follow the trend and le v e l o f ov e r a dozen
differen t k i n d s of building con stru ction
in sp e c ific l o c a l i t i e s to determ ine in
which a r e a s ,o r parts of areas,,their p rod ­
ucts or sk ills are being u sed, and w here
and how great d e m a n d w ill be in the
future.
M o re o v e r, b eca u se these sta­
tis tic s p r o v i d e a quantification o f the
d i s p e r s i o n o f new building within the
pa rts o f m etropolitan areas (cen tra l citie s
and suburbs), they are helpful in c o m ­
munity planning, m a r k e t a n a ly sis, and
s o cia l and e con om ic r e s e a r c h requ iring
cu rren t and dynam ic in form ation a b o u t

This "urban b u i l d i n g authorized**
s e r ie s was discontinued with publication
o f data fo r June 1954, becau se o f the
p rob lem o f resolv in g d iffe re n ce s betw een
the geographic areas used fo r
building
p erm it system s and the urban areas as
defined in the 1950 C en su s.2 In its p la ce ,
a "building p erm it activity s e r ie s " was
inaugurated to m easure building activity
1 These data (table B-14) bring up to date statis­
tics for these cities for 1921-48, published in Building
Construction in Principal Cities of the United States,
1921-48, U. S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor
Statistics, Washington (June 1949).
2 Urban, as defined in the 1950 Census, includes
not only incorporated places of 2,500 or more popula­
tion, but a large number of unincorporated specially
delineated localities, and the densely settled but un­
incorporated fringes adjacent to large cities. These un­
incorporated areas were defined on the basis of housing
or population density and their boundaries in general
are not political but follow such .identifiable physical
characteristics as streets, roads, railroads, streams,
etc. On the other hand, building permit systems usually
cover entire political subdivisions:
cities, villages,
townships, counties, etc.; it is not possible to obtain
reports which segregate the building activity by urban
and nonurban areas within such subdivisions.

This bulletin p resen ts the building
p e rm it sta tistics in com plete detail fo r

in all p e rm it-issu in g p la ce s in the United
States.
The new se rie s begins with data
fo r January 1954, and thus p rov id es a
6-m onth ov erla p p eriod fo r w hich statis­
tics fr o m both s e r ie s are available for
com p a rison and fo r linking p u rp oses.
In prep aration fo r establishm ent of
the p e rm it-issu in g u n iv erse, an intensive
e ffo rt was made during 1953 and ea rly
1954 to locate and obtain re p o rts from
all p la ce s having building p erm it system s
— p r a c tic a lly all l a r g e c it ie s , a large
prop ortion o f sm a ller c it ie s , and num er­
ous un in corporated tow ns, t o w n s h i p s ,
d i s t r i c t s , and entire cou n ties.
It is
b e lie v e d that virtu ally all p e rm it-issu in g
lo c a litie s (o v e r 7, 000) w ere covered'.

Among the fundamental pu rp oses of
the building p erm it s y s t e m is the en­
fo rce m e n t of zoning r e s t r i c t i o n s and
structural requ irem en ts related to safety,
fir e preven tion , and health con sid era tion s.
As a n e c e s s a ry step in en forcem en t, the
builder or owner of a p ro p o se d structure
is req u ired to obtain a p erm it to build.
The p erm it d e s c rib e s the p ro p o se d con ­
struction and its estim ated c o s t at the
tim e o f application; the detail req u ired
v a rie s among lo c a litie s .
This in form a ­
tion is c o lle c te d fr o m the building p erm it
o ffic ia ls by the Bureau on a questionnaire
fo r m (B LS 404) which is m ailed to them
each month.
In addition to the building p erm it
data re p orted by building o ffic ia ls , the
Bureau*s s e r ie s includes the amount of
con stru ction c o n t r a c t s a w a r d e d fo r
F ed era l p r o je cts and fo r public housing
(F e d e ra l, State, and lo ca l) in p e r m it issu in g p la c e s . L ikew ise, p r o je c ts under
v a riou s F e d e r a l a i d p ro g ra m s (e. g. ,
sch ools and h ospitals) are included when
it has been determ ined by corre sp o n d e n ce
that the building o fficia l did not cov er
them in his r e p o r t .
C ontract awards
in form ation fo r p r o je c ts financed w holly
o r p a rtia lly with F ed era l funds is r e ­
p orted to the Bureau d i r e c t l y by the
F e d e r a l agen cies resp on sib le fo r the
con stru ction ; and fo r public housing, by
the agency adm inistering the p a rticu lar
p ro g ra m .




The s e r i e s conceptually does not
include the co sts of (1) dem olishing or
m o v i n g building s , (2) nonbuilding co n stru ctio n ( streets and highw ays, pip elin es,
water and sew er sy stem s, and the lik e),
or (3) land, l a n d d e v e l o p m e n t , and
arch itectural and engineering f e e s . 3

LIMITATIONS OF BUILDING PERMIT DATA

Building p erm it data are liable to
the same defects as any other data c o l­
lected by m ail. That is , they are affected
by e r r o r s in resp on se, p rob lem s of o m is ­
sion s, and late or interm ittent reportin g.
The
accuracy
of b u i l d i n g
p erm it resp on se has never been d eter­
m ined co n clu siv ely . H ow ever, resp on se
e r r o r s are ov ercom e as much as p ossib le
by ca refu l e d i t i n g and frequent c o r r e ­
spondence with p erm it o ffic ia ls .
F ur­
th erm ore, re p o rte rs for all of the la rg e ,
active building areas have b ecom e thor­
oughly fa m ilia r with the fo rm and uses
o f the Bureau’ s questionnaires during the
many y ea rs they have b e e n submitting
inform ation.
F or areas of low building
activity, or p la ce s where reportin g has
been consistently inadequate, an abbre­
viated questionnaire (BLS 404B) was used
until July 1957,4 as an aid in preventing
resp on se e r r o r s .
This short question­
naire r e l i e v e s the p erm it o f f i c e r of
the e ffort of cla ssify in g nonresidential
buildings a ccordin g to type. Omissions^
and late and interm ittent reportin g are
t a k e n ca re of r o u t i n e l y by m ultiple
requests fo r the data, sa tisfa ctory e s ti­
mating techniques, and regular re v is io n s .
To obtain a definitive answer to
the question of how w ell building p e r ­
m it r e c o r d s r e fle ct the amount of build­
ing that actually takes place would r e ­
quire an intensive fie ld survey in sam ple
a re a s.
Such a survey should take into
account what p rop ortion of building is
done illeg a lly , without a p erm it, and how
^ Construction on farms is included to the extent
that farm buildings are covered by permit systems. By
and large, however, the series relates to nonfarm build­
ing construction.
4
In July 1957, the Bureau’ s regular questionnaire
form (BLS 404) was simplified and use of the additional
questionnaire was discontinued.

3
m uch is never begun even though a p e r­
m it was obtained. H ow ever; fro m the r e ­
sults o f sm all pilot studies made in r e ­
cent y e a r s , there is an indication that the
p erm it r e c o r d is a relia b le so u rce for
new building activity, but is l i k e l y to
understate the volum e of additions and
alterations to buildings, becau se a lter­
ation w ork frequently m ay p r o c e e d with­
out drawing the attention o f the cru isin g
in sp e cto r, while new building con stru ction
is obvious.
To the extent that va riou s kinds of
new b u i l d i n g s are co v e re d by p erm it
sy stem s, it a p p e a r s that virtu ally all
p riva tely owned stru ctu res are rep orted .
H ow ever, many p la ce s do not r e q u i r e
p e r m i t s fo r pu blicly owned b u ild in gs,
m ainly becau se in spection is under the
j u r i s d i c t i o n o f either another l o c a l
agency, or a county, State, or F ed eral

In som e p la c e s, buildings spon­
sored by the city or county governm ents
requ ire a lo c a l perm it, but State buildings
are exem pt.
F rom p e r i o d i c fie ld s t u d i e s in
sam ple lo c a litie s , it has been determ ined
that fo r new housing, at le a st, the p ro ­
portion o f dw ellings fo r which p erm its
w ere taken out but never used (the " la p s e 1
*
rate) has been n egligible in recen t y ears
— 1 p ercen t o r le s s since 1951.
Even
though no com parable surveys have been
made fo r n o n r e s i d e n t i a l building, it
seem s lik ely that the lapse rate would
be v e ry low fo r this c a t e g o r y a lso,
except, perhaps, when econ om ic con di­
tions are ex trem ely unusual. One reason
fo r this con clu sion is that p erm it fees
ord in a rily are based on con stru ction c o s t,
and th erefore it would often be quite ex­
pensive to fo r fe it the p erm it, e sp e cia lly
in the case of large p r o je c ts .
Custom ­
a rily , the p erm it is obtained after the
con tract is awarded and w ork is fa irly
certain to get underway.
In an attempt to im prove the c o v e r ­
age of State and lo c a l public con stru ction ,
the Bureau1s questionnaire i n c l u d e s a
r e q u e s t that o f f i c i a l s re p o rt public
buildings even though they issu e no p e r ­
m its fo r t h e m .
C om pliance with this
requ est is good, but not com p lete. A lso,




as m entioned e a r lie r , all F ed era l and
fed era lly aided buildings are added into
the building p erm it data.
V arious s t u d i e s have established
the fact that perm it valuation u s u a l l y
understates a c t u a l con stru ction co st.
This is p a rticu la rly true fo r p la ces w here
sp ecial p erm its are requ ired fo r se rv ice
fa cilitie s or equipment essen tial to the
g e n e r a l use of the building— plum bing,
heating,
air conditioning, e l e v a t o r s ,
e le c tr ic a l w ork , e tc ., or b u ilt-in p rod u c­
tion equipment in industrial buildings.
The co s ts of such fa cilitie s and equipment
m ay be excluded fro m con stru ction co st
in the general perm it b ecau se they are
included in sp ecia l p erm its.
P e rm it valuation is m ore n e a r l y
com parable with con stru ction c o s t in a
s m a l l num ber of c i t i e s in which the
building co m m issio n e r rev iew s and may
ask fo r re v is io n s , in the co s ts reported ;
a few cities demand that the owner state
the actual c o s t of the building after co m ­
pletion.
O bviously, these d ifferen ces in
valuation p ra ctice tend, in som e c a s e s ,
to distort in tercity com p a rison s. M ore­
o v e r, data fo r New Y ork City are not
strictly com parable with those fo r other
p e rm it-issu in g p la ce s, since the fo rm e r
are based on i n s p e c t i o n re c o r d s and
rep resen t w ork actually started. Build­
ing volum e is probably understated m ore
for New Y ork than fo r other citie s be­
cause of delayed rep orts fro m building
in sp e cto rs.
Since p r e c is e inform ation is lacking
regarding the extent of the understate­
m ent of costs fo r s e rv ice f a c i l i t i e s ,
equipm ent, and the lik e, as w ell as the
extent to which builders* overhead and
p rofit are included in the estim a tes, no
adjustm ents are made in the building
p erm it data to r e fle ct the fa ct that p e r ­
m it valuations gen erally understate the
actual c o s t o f con stru ction .
Nor are the
data adjusted fo r lapsed p erm its or the
lag between p erm it issuance or co n tra ctaward dates and start of con stru ction .
T h e re fo re , they should not be con sid ered
as represen tin g the total value of build­
ing con stru ction authorized by p e rm its,
or the volum e of building con stru ction
started.

Comparison of Population Coverage

In term s of population, the c o v e r ­

is significantly greater (16 percent) than
that of the s u p p l a n t e d urban s e r ie s .

E xam ples o f these p la ce s are

In addition, many o f the in co rp o ­
rated v illa g e s and towns c o v e re d by the
new s e r i e s but excluded fr o m the old
s e r ie s becau se they w ere too sm all to
be c la s s ifie d as urban in 1940, a lso w ere
fast grow ing p la ce s.
They contributed
substantially to the g r e a t e r population
co v e ra g e of the p erm it activity se r ie s in
both the m etropolitan and the n on m etro­
politan segm ents o f the u n iverse.
When the 2 s e r i e s are com pared
with r e sp e ct to the gain between 1940 and
1950 in the population c o v e re d by their

The same situation is apparent also in

The e x p a n d e d co v e ra g e o f t h e

still is rather lim ited as to the extent
o f nonfarm p o p u l a t i o n co v e re d in the
nonm etropolitan u n iverse. N everth eless,
this is actually le s s re s trictiv e than it
seem s, b e c a u s e a B u r e a u study of
building con stru ction data rev ea led that
p l a c e s having building p erm it system s
are g e n e r a l l y m ore a c t i v e than the

Consequently, building activity

rep resen ts a la rg e r p rop ortion o f t o t a l
nonm etropolitan b u i l d i n g con stru ction
than is apparent fro m these population
statistics alone. Thus, if inform ation on
new building con stru ction w ere available
fo r ev ery lo ca lity in the country, p erm it
issuing or oth erw ise, it would probably
show only a s l i g h t l y sm aller ratio of
m e t r o p o l i t a n a r e a building than is
evident fro m the p erm it activity s e r ie s ,
and a little la rg e r prop ortion of building
in nonm etropolitan p la ce s.

In the ca se of the m etropolitan uni­
v e rse of the new s e r ie s , the prop ortion
o f 1950 n o n f a r m population co v e re d is
above the national average in all reg ion s
except the South.
Even th ere, w h e r e
building p erm it system s are le s s co m ­

rep resen ts 89 p ercen t of the n o n f a r m

In

figure fo r the country as a w hole, both
in the South and in the N ortheast, the

and 51 percen t.

The 16-p e rce n t in crea se fro m the

States except Iowa, M ississ ip p i, Arkan­

DIFFERENCES IN BUILDING VOLUME

C om paring volum e fo r the fir s t 6
months o f 1954 (the only p e rio d fo r which
data are available fr o m both the old and
the new s e r ie s ), valuations of building
con stru ction r e p o r t e d fo r all p e rm it­
issuing p l a c e s totaled $ 7 0 9 b illio n , as
against $5. 1 b illion fo r urban p la c e s —
a d ifferen ce o f 56 p ercen t (table A -4 ).
This r e fle c ts the fa ct that m ost of
the p l a c e s added to the s e r i e s w ere
building quite actively to take c a re of
their rapidly in crea sin g population. F or
exam ple, roughly 90 p ercen t (o r n early
$ 4 .6 billion ) o f the building volum e of
the old s e r i e s was in p e rm it-issu in g
urban p la ce s c o v e r e d in both s e r ie s .
That m eans the p la ce s brought into the
new s e r ie s (accounting fo r only 15 p e r ­
cent of the nonfarm population cov ered )
contributed about $3. 3 b illion , or a little
m o re than 40 p ercen t of the total b u ild in gp e rm it volu m e.
To illu stra te fu rth er, the p er capita
building rate fo r January-June 1954 (i.e .,
the amount of p e rm it v a l u a t i o n s per
p e r s o n in the c o v e re d lo c a litie s) was
h igh er, in g e n e r a l , fo r the
p e rm it
activity s e r ie s than fo r the urban author­

and la r g e , this resu lts fr o m the addition
o f num erous le s s densely populated, but
v e ry a ctive, suburban area s surrounding
the la rg e r c itie s .
Variations by Type of Building

Since housing is the type o f building
m o st c lo s e ly rela ted to population m ov e­
m en ts, and so many of the p la ce s added
to the new s e r ie s w ere lo c a litie s e x p e ri­
encing p o p u l a t i o n in c re a se s l a r g e l y
beca u se o f in m igration , it is not su rp ris­
ing that the higher le v e l o f the
p erm it
activity s e r ie s was due ch iefly to gains
in resid en tia l building.
Valuations fo r
new resid en tia l building during the fir s t
half of 1954 cam e to $4. 7 b illio n fo r all
p e rm it-issu in g p la c e s , or 71 p e r c e n t

urban s e r ie s .
V ariations among the se v e ra l types

In crea ses between the two

built in outlying areas w here land co sts
and other fa cto rs are m ore fa v ora b le—
than they w ere fo r m ultifam ily stru ctu res
(table A -6 ).
M o re o v e r, public housing,
which in 1954 was loca ted alm ost ex clu ­
siv ely in the la rg e r c itie s , was only a
little h i g h e r in the new s e r i e s , and
alm ost half of this in cre a se was due to
the addition of a single p r o je ct built by
the City of M iam i, but loca ted in Dade
County, Fla.
The c a t e g o r y showing the l e a s t
amount of gain fro m the rebasin g of the
estim ates was additions, altera tion s, and
r e p a ir s , which i n c r e a s e d 21 p ercen t,
fr o m $ 0 .6 billion to $ 0 .7 b illion .
It is
probable that alteration and rep a ir w ork

the older c i t i e s w ere a l r e a d y in the
urban estim ates.
Valuations fo r n e w n onresidential
building totaled n ea rly $ 2 .5 b illion in all
p erm it p la c e s , as against $ 1 . 7 b illion in
u r b a n p la c e s — a 43 p ercen t d iffe re n ce .
The grea test relative in c re a s e , 85 p e r ­
cen t, was in public buildings (fire and
p o lice stations, cou rth ou ses, city h a lls,
a r m o r ie s , ja ils , and other buildings used

This relation sh ip of
building types and c o sts to loca tion and
land usage w ill be developed m ore fully
in part B o f this re p o rt.
State and Regional Variations

D ifferen ces betw een the two s e rie s
in the le v e ls of som e of the State e s ti­
m ates are m uch m ore pronounced than
those fo r the Nation as a whole (table A - 8).
In M aryland, fo r exam ple, the expansion
o f the estim ating base alm ost quadrupled
the total p erm it valuation figu re.
The
addition of the highly urbanized counties
in the B altim ore and W ashington m e tro ­
politan areas accounted fo r m ost of this
in c re a s e .
S im ila rly, the Delaware data
p ro fite d by the addition o f the northern
portion o f New Castle County, and sta­
tistics fo r A rizon a , by the in clu sion of
M aricop a and P im a Counties® In both of
these States, building p e rm it volum e was
w ell over three tim es g rea ter in the new
s e r ie s than in the old®
States gen erally e x p erien ced gains
o r lo s s e s in building volum e that w ere
in the same d ire ctio n , if not in the same
d e g re e , as changes in population c o v e r ­
age. H ow ever, A rkan sas, Iowa, M is s is ­
sippi, and V erm on t all showed population
lo s s e s , as m entioned e a r lie r , yet in only
the latter two was there le s s b u i l d i n g
con stru ction in the new s e r ie s .
In s e v e r a l States— Montana, Ne­
b ra sk a , N orth C a rolin a , North Dakota,
and South Dakota— there w ere gains both
in population c o v e r a g e and in building
v olu m e, but the p er capita building rate
in those States was low er fo r the p erm it
activity s e r ie s than fo r the urban e s ti­
m ates. In addition, although the building
rate was low er in the new s e r i e s fo r
M ississ ip p i a lso , it w as higher fo r V e r ­
mont®
(See tables A -2 , A -5 , and A -8 ,
and ch art 1 .)
Thus, it is apparent that in V e r ­
m ont, the p la ce s rem aining in the s e rie s




w ere m ore active in b u i l d i n g than the
urban p la ces no longer included in the
estim ates despite the fact that the latter
w ere m ore p o p u l o u s .
In M ississ ip p i,
the in corp ora ted p la ces added in rebasing
the estim ates w ere both sm aller and le s s
active than the urban p la ce s that w ere no
lon ger co v e re d .
C on v ersely, in Arkan­
sas, p la ces added w ere m ore active and
la rg e r than those discontinued. This was
true also in Iowa, but only with re sp e ct
to the nonm etropolitan u n iverse.
The
additional cov era g e in Montana, N ebras­
ka, North C arolina, N orth Dakota, and
South Dakota was co m p rise d m ainly o f
num erous sm all v illa g es and towns where
b u i l d i n g activity was at a r e l a t i v e
standstill.
Among the four broad re g io n s , the
W est re g is te re d the la rg e s t in cre a se s in

On the other hand, using the p er

com p a rison , the N ortheast s h o w e d the

as the amount of b u i l d i n g activity per

In both s e r ie s , the North Central
States led the other three reg ion s with

the South, W est, and N ortheast follow ed ,

advanced ahead o f the South into second

In

W est again ro se fro m t h i r d to second

the North Central States. The South held
fir s t pla ce in num ber o f dw elling units,
and the N ortheast ranked fourth, in both
the old and new s e r ie s (table A -1 0 )o
These shifts r e fle c t region a l d iffe r­
en ces in stru ctu ral ch a r a c te r is tics and
c o s t o f housing. F or exam ple, the W est
gained m ore dwelling units than the North
C entral States, yet the latter continued
to account fo r the la rg e s t share o f new
resid en tia l perm it valuations becau se the
housing con stru cted in the North is m ore
expen sive.
Among other fea tu res, this
housing tends to have b a s e m e n t s and
cen tra l heating system s m o re gen erally
than that in the re st o f the c o u n t r y .
S i m i l a r l y , although the W est did not
overtake the South with re s p e ct to num­
b e r s o f units, it did so in term s o f dollar
volum e beca u se a la rg e r p ro p o rtio n of
w estern h ouses contained such " e x t r a s 1
1
as fir e p la c e s , garages or c a r p o r ts , and
additional b a th room s, and thus are m ore
c o stly than houses built in the South. In
fa ct, Bureau surveys rev ea l that the p rice
o f n ew 'h ou sin g is con sisten tly low er in
the South than in the other re g io n s. 6
The W est was the only reg ion in
which there was a sm all d e cre a se fro m
the urban to the p e rm it activity s e rie s
in the average p e rm it valuation fo r new

This is partly

COMPARISON OF MONTHLY TRENDS

F rom a com p a rison o f the data fo r
the fir s t half o f 1954, it appears that the
m o n t h l y trend o f total building p erm it
valuations was changed v e ry little by the
expansion o f the s e r ie s (ch art 2 )c P r o b ­
ably the ch ief rea son is that the volum e
added to the se rie s as a resu lt o f re b a s ­
ing the estim ates w as distributed fa irly
w ell geographically*
T h e r e f o r e , the
seasonal trend was not greatly affected,
as it w o u l d have been if m ost o f the
additional volum e had been either in the
North where f l u c t u a t i o n s in building
activity fro m the winter low to the sum­
m er peak are rela tiv ely ex trem e, or in
the South w here season al m ovem ents are
gen erally le s s pronounced.
F or the country as a w hole, new
n o n r e s i d e n t i a l building was the only
m a jor ca teg ory to show any app reciab le
d ifferen ce in the trend o f the two s e r ie s .
This follow s as a m atter o f c o u r s e , since
volum e in a single month f l u e t*u a t e s
m ark edly with the in clu sion or ex clu sion
o f la rge p r o je c ts , and these are m ore
prevalent in the nonre sidential building
ca teg ory than in the oth ers. Am ong the
many kinds o f nonre sidential buildings,
the g rea test im pact was m a d e by the
addition to the s e r ie s o f those in the fo l­
low ing three g r o u p s : (1) fa c to r ie s and
a ssem bly plants in outlying a r e a s ; (2)
pu b licly owned p r o je c ts , such as sewage
treatm ent plants, w eather stations, and
National Guard a r m o r i e s , as w ell as
testing la b o ra to rie s , flig h t-co n tro l build­
in gs, b a rra ck s, w a r e h o u s e s ,
shops,
m aintenance hangars, and other instal­

ational fa c ilitie s such as country clubs
and buildings a s s o c i a t e d with sports
cen ters and r e s o r t p la ce s.
Even on a reg ion al b a s is , w h i c h
accentuates the e ffe ct o f la rge p r o je cts
and the monthly fluctuations of data fo r
individual lo c a litie s , there was co n sid ­
erable sim ila rity in the trend o f the two
s e r ie s with re s p e ct to the valuation of
all building con stru ction , e sp e cia lly in
the North (ch art 3). The slightly grea ter
d iv ergen ce in the South and the W est m ay
be due sim ply to the fa ct that cov era g e
was expanded there re la tiv ely m o re than

LINKING THE SERIES

A fter thorough analysis o f the data
fo r the o v e r l a p p e rio d , January-June
1954, it was determ in ed that the n e w
building p e rm it activity s e r ie s could be
linked to the old urban authorized s e r ie s
with rela tive e a se , and yet prod u ce sat­
is fa c to r y m ea su res o f trend, fo r national

This is not to

440,00 0 new dw elling units— the la rg e s t

B ecause of the great influence of

*3 Since the only 1956 population data available
in the required geographic detail are related to total,
rather than nonfarm population, it was necessary to de­
rive 1956 nonfarm population estimates (using the pro­
visional estimates of total population of States on July
1, 1956, shown in Current Population Reports, Series
P-25, No. 148, Bureau of the Census, U. S. Department
of Commerce) by assuming (1) that the farm population
remained static between 1950 and 1956, and (2) that
permit places accounted for the same proportion of the
1956 nonfarm population as they did of the 1950 nonfarm
population (i.e., that permit places grew at about die
same rate as nonpermit places). The first assumption
resulted in a small understatement of die 1956 nonfarm
figure because farm population has actually been de­
clining in recent years. However, die national total de­
rived by the procedure described above was only slight­
ly (about 0.5 percent) below the national nonfarm popu­
lation figures indicated by the latest Census Bureau
estimates of the num of persons living on farms in
ber
April 1956. See Farm Population, Series Census-AMS
(P-27), No. 24. Any error introduced by die second
assumption cannot be evaluated precisely, but is prob­
ably minor.

showed that m ore than half o f the m e tro ­
politan area building o f these types was
to take place in the cen tral c itie s .
The

o f f i c e buildings, c o m m e r c ia l (parking)

l a r g e , m a n y -sto ry stru ctu re s, using a
re la tiv e ly s m a l l plot of land fo r each
unit of s e r v ic e , or population serv ed .
Some o f the reason s fo r the m ov e­
m ent o f hom ebuilding to outlying d istricts,
e sp e c ia lly during the e a rly postw ar years,
had to do with reducing c o s ts . In fringe
a r e a s , lots are gen erally cheaper than
in the city; taxes are frequently low er;
there is m o re ro o m to build m a ss housing
p r o je c t s , thus perm itting eco n o m ie s of
la r g e -s c a le o p e r a t i o n s ; and, in som e
suburban lo c a litie s , building co d e s are
le s s r e s tr ic tiv e .
H ow ever, by 1954-56,
other in flu en ces had com e to the fo r e ,
which a lso m aintained the trend of new
housing to the suburbs and, in addition,
tended to attract a d i f f e r e n t kind of
housing, nam ely, la r g e r , higher p r ice d
h om es.
These influences in clu d e, among
oth ers, ( l ) the i n c r e a s i n g num ber of
la r g e r fa m ilie s requ irin g m o re space fo r
ch ild ren ; and (2) a grea ter p rop ortion of
fa m ilie s who could afford la r g e r houses
with surrounding play and garden area,
as w ell as the a u t o m o b i l e and other
tran sportation req u ired by in cre a se d d is­
tance fr o m w ork and shopping and s e r v ice
fa c ilitie s .
The building p e rm it sta tistics bear
out the fa ct that the suburban hom e of
rece n t y e a rs is m ore e x p e n s i v e than
h ouses in other section s.
In 1956, fo r




exam ple, the average p erm it valuation
p er private sin g le -fa m ily dwelling in the
outlying d istricts o f m etropolitan areas
was about $1,100 higher than the average
fo r houses inside the cen tral c itie s , and

The flow o f industrial building to the
suburbs also o ccu rre d fo r a v a riety of
re a so n s, som e of w hich w ere the same
that influenced the outward m ovem ent in
hom ebuilding. Among the reason s fo r the
i n c r e a s e in suburban fa cto ry building
w ere the d esire to escap e high city taxes;
to be n ea rer the new m arkets resulting
fro m the em erg en ce o f en tirely new co m ­

17 Although the $2,100 difference may be some­
what high, since there is evidence that the amount by
which permit valuations understate actual cost of con­
struction is likely to be greater in small than in large
places, this does not invalidate the conclusion that
housing is considerably more expensive in the fringes
of metropolitan areas than in nonmetropolitan places.

A r e a d iffe re n ce s in suburbaniza­

struction are not rea d ily accounted fo r
by one o r two of these f a c t o r s alone.
F or exam ple, 3 c it ie s — C olum bus, M il­
waukee, and San D iego— all annexed about
the sam e amount of te r r ito ry b e t w e e n
1950 and 1956. Population density in the
annexed land was about equal fo r C olum ­
bus and San D iego, and was m uch low er
than the rate fo r M ilwaukee. Yet, in the
fir s t a rea , roughly t w o - t h i r d s o f the
1954-56 p erm it valuations w ere fo r sub­
urban con stru ction , com p a red with le s s
than half in the other two a rea s.
A s a further illu stra tion , the p ro ­
portion o f suburban building was about
the same in the New Y ork -N orth ea stern
New J ersey and the Salt Lake City m et­
ropolitan areas as in the Columbus area,
but the density (1950 p o p u l a t i o n p er
square m ile) in the cen tral city or cities
was higher fo r New Y ork than fo r any
other pla ce in the country, v e ry low for
Salt Lake, and only m odera tely high for
Colum bus.
The m ost u n iform building pattern
among the individual areas was the sub­
urban and fringe tendency o f new house
con stru ction .
San D iego was the only
one o f the 24 areas in w hich m ore new
dw elling units w ere s c h e d u l e d fo r the
cen tral city than outside during each of
the y e a rs 1954-56.
In the other a rea s,
not only w as there m o re new h om ebu ilding outside the cen tra l c itie s , but, with
few e x c e p t i o n s , m o re dw ellings w ere
built in the le s s thickly settled parts of
the m etropolitan area than in either the
cen tral c itie s or the satellite c i t i e s —
c i t i e s other than cen tral c itie s having
10,000 or m ore p o p u l a t i o n in 1950.
Despite these general s im ila ritie s , the
areas d iffered a pp reciab ly in the d isp e r­
sion o f h o u s i n g , beca u se of variation s
in s iz e , age, topography, e co n o m ic de­
velopm en t, and other in flu en ces.




Contrary to trends nationally, the
average p erm it valuation of sin g le-fa m ily
d w e l l i n g s was higher fo r ce n tra l-city
houses than fo r suburban hom es during
the entire 1954-56 p eriod in 9 out of the
24 m etropolitan a r e a s .
L ikew ise, al­
though n a t i o n a l l y
the le s s expensive
m ultifam ily housing was in the suburbs,
reflectin g the g rea ter p rev alen ce there of
walkup garden apartm ents, com pared with
h ig h -ris e elevator apartm ents ch a ra cte r­
istic of the cen tral city , in 9 m etropolitan
areas
the average valuation fo r apart­
m ents (units in 2 -o r -m o r e -fa m ily stru c­
tures) was low er inside the cen tral citie s
than outside (table B -2 1 ). A m a jority of
the areas in the fir s t group w ere located
in the W est, and m ost of those in the
second group w ere in northern and east­
ern section s of the country.
T h e r e w ere also wide variations
among the 24 areas with re sp e ct to p e r unit co sts (fo r houses and apartm ents)
rep orted for the m etropolitan area as a
w hole. A verage p erm it valuations in the
Cleveland area w ere h i g h e r than any­
where else fo r 1 - f a m i l y h o u s e s and
among the highest for units in !2 -o r -m o r e .
fam ily buildings.
Low est averages r e ­
ported fo r sin g le-fa m ily hom es w ere in
t h e N orfolk -P ortsm ou th area, and f o r
m ultifam ily units in Birm ingham . A large
part of these d ifferen ces was due to the
location of the a rea s, and re fle cte d r e ­
gional variations in clim a tic conditions
and lo c a l custom s which affect the stru c­
tural ch a r a c te r is tics , and thus the co st
