Spaces in New Homes

4/1. The most recent American Community Survey (ACS) data show that, including self-employed, 10.3 million people worked in construction in 2017. NAHB estimates that out of this total, more than 4 million people worked in residential construction, accounting for 2.6% of the US employed civilian labor force. These numbers reflect steady job gains that took place since 2011 when construction employment bottomed out. Nevertheless, the industry employment levels remain below the peaks reached during the housing boom when more than 11 million worked in construction, and home building employed more than 5 million people, including self-employed workers.
