* Metropolitan Statistical Areas consist of one or more counties

** Residential Building includes new single-multi-family housing as well as residential alterations and additions.

*** Non-residential building includes office, store, hotel, industrial, hospital and other buildings for non-residential uses, as well as alterations and additions made on these non-residential buildings.

**** "Non-building" or "heavy" construction includes streets and highways, bridges, sewerage and water-supply systems, electrical power and heating systems, river, harbor and flood control, and other public works and utilities. Wide fluctuations in dollar amounts often occur because of the influence of a few very large projects.
