Metro Area Construction and Employment

NAR measured the amount of new home construction relative to the number of newly employed workers in 146 metropolitan statistical areas1 (MSAs) throughout the U.S. to determine whether homebuilding has kept up with the steadily improving pace of job growth in the past three years2. The findings reveal that homebuilding activity for all housing types is underperforming in roughly two-thirds of measured metro areas.

A list of counties included in MSA definitions is available at:http://www.census.gov/population/estimates/metro-city/List4.txt(link is external).
