Housing Impact Studies

When residential construction occurs, it generates substantial economic activity in the state where it takes place. The economic activity generated includes income and jobs for state residents, as well as revenue for state and local governments. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has developed a model to estimate the economic benefits.

The model captures the effect of the construction activity itself and the ripple impact that occurs when income earned from construction activity is spent and recycled in the state.
