This is the third in a series of blog posts highlighting data results from the 2012 Economic Census for the Cincinnati MSA. The Economic Census is the U.S. Government's official five-year measure of American business and the economy. It is conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau in years ending in 2 and 7.
Last month we discussed Cincinnati’s commodity flow data. This month we are focusing on the construction sector. Unlike other industry sectors, data are not reported for counties and metropolitan areas. This post presents data for the states of Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The information on the construction industry includes data for residential and non-residential buildings; heavy and civil engineering construction; and specialty trade contractors.
