    I have done some reasearch.

    By 2030 we need 60 million more units to house our growing population in the u.s.

    We will have 80-90 million more people.

  3. 60 m houses needed you say by 2030?

    Do you know how many privately owned construction units were completed in 2004?

    20,000,000 (in 2004 alone).

    At the rate we're going by 2030 we'll have 500,000,000.
     
  4. What is the source of these data?

  5. wow amazing...please provide source if possible...also Jem dont forget most of the illegals live 12 to a house...peace
     
  6. Take a look at Table 5 entitiled New Privately Owned Housing Units Completed. Add all the number of units built each month and you will have the amount. The document is a public document that comes out with the Housing starts and Building Permits from the US Census Beareau and Department of Housing and Urban Development. You can download the pdf format from yahoo - finance.

    Note: I am just sharing what I have read as I understood. Do not make a decision based on my view.

    Where I can find this table. I would like to see those stats.

    20,000,000 million homes a year seems like a lot. I would have thought we would be seeing more like 2,000,0000 a year.

  9. Jem I think you are right the supply was more like 1.84 m for 2004. I added the units built each month and I don't think that should be the done - since these were seasonally adjusted annual rate.
