Construction Employment

Each month, AGC puts out commentary on construction employment in the U.S.; a press release and tables ranking every state by employment change; and a press release and tables ranking 358 metro areas by employment change. AGC also conducts periodic surveys on worker availability and contractors' assessments of market conditions and publishes a spreadsheet of construction employment by state and congressional district.
