Indicated expenditures for total construction in these 294 cities were 39.8 per cent less in November, 1931, than in November, 1930. Six of the seven geographic divisions registered decreases in expenditures, comparing these two periods. There was, however, an increase of 126.2 per cent in the South Atlantic States. The decreases extended from a low of 14.9 per cent in the West North Central States to 57.4 per cent in the East North Central States.

Indicated expenditures for new residential buildings decreased 56.0 per cent, comparing November, 1931, with November, 1930.
