Starts Watch: 2000 Final Totals

United States residential building permits totaled 1,592,267 in 2000, down from 1,663,533 housing units in 1999 according to the C40 Housing Units Authorized by Building Permit report issued by the US Census Bureau. This is a decrease of 4.3% from 1999.

We have analyzed the starts information by state in a series of tables and maps. All maps are in both GIF and Acrobat format. For offline printing and analysis, we recommend the Acrobat format because of the Acrobat Reader's ability to magnify the map area and its better printing resolution.  These maps were converted using Acrobat 5.0.
