US Census Bureau Construction Statistics

The US Census Bureau tracks the numbers of housing units authorized by permits, started, sold or completed. They measure the dollar value of all construction put in place each month. They  track residential construction in 30 metropolitan areas across the country each quarter, and the sales of new one-family houses in those areas each year. The Census Bureau tabulates and publishes the dollar value of residential improvement and repair work each quarter. Their Census of Construction Industries, taken every five years, provides the most comprehensive overview of the construction industry available.
