Texas, the birthplace of construction, is in the midst of a construction boom.
But how many new homes are actually being built each year?
In a recent survey of the U.S. Census Bureau, a team of researchers from the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas A&M University System came up with a simple way to count the number of new homes being built: They looked at the number listed for each county in Texas.
Then they looked at those counties over the past four years.
In the counties that had the highest percentage of homes built in the past year, the researchers found that nearly 60 percent of new construction in 2016 was clustered around the city of Austin, with nearly half of all new construction being in the surrounding counties of Brazoria, Galveston, Harris, Travis and Williamson.
And of the remaining counties, nearly half were located along the Gulf Coast.
In addition to Austin, the survey also looked at counties along the coast, in the state of Texas, and in Florida, including those that are home to major oil and gas operations.
The Texas A & M researchers found the most popular types of new housing in the county areas that they studied: detached homes, townhouses, townhomes, and condos.
The median number of condos per household in the areas with the highest proportion of new condos in 2016.
The study is part of a larger research effort by the University at Austin to help better understand the impact of development on local economies.
The researchers have conducted several studies on the impact on the U,S.
They also looked to see how different regions of the country are doing on their respective growth curves.
In 2016, Texas saw a rapid increase in new construction, especially in the counties around Austin.
That meant more than 20,000 new homes were built.
But when the researchers looked at how those counties fared on other factors, they found that in many counties, construction was slower or even halted, and construction in some areas was actually delayed.
For example, while the counties with the largest percentage of new development in 2016 saw the highest unemployment rates, that was in fact because of a slowdown in construction activity, and it was only a handful of counties that experienced a decrease in unemployment rates.
In other words, the economic impact of new building was much smaller than the overall economic impact, because new construction did not have a huge economic impact in most counties.
The researchers also looked more broadly to see if there was a regional trend, and they found the region where the largest number of construction was happening was along the West Coast.
But there was no correlation between the amount of new developments in the West and the economic performance of the West.
The University at Texas at San Antonio is currently conducting a similar study that will look at the economic impacts of the construction of new subdivisions and townhouses along major corridors in Texas, including the Gulf, the Outer Banks, the Rio Grande Valley, and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
