This 1999 annual report on the characteristics of new housing is published jointly by the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S.Census Bureau, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Data are obtained from the Census Bureau's Survey of Construction, and the Survey of Market Absorption. HUD sponsors all or part of these surveys.
This report provides annual estimates on selected physical and financial characteristics of new housing. The first 18 tables provide data on new housing units completed,with Tables 1 through 16 showing data by purpose of construction. Tables 19 through 25b provide financial and physical characteristics data on new one-family houses sold. This includes one-family houses sold under condominium arrangements. Tables 26 and 27 provide financial characteristics data for contractor-built houses started. This category covers custom-built, one-family houses; that is, houses built by a general contractor on the owner s land for the owner s use. Finally, there is a supplement on the characteristics of apartment units completed in buildings with five units or more.
