New State Data Added to Skilled Labor Resources



As NAHB continues to work hard to address the industry’s concerns regarding labor shortages, we’ve updated the state-specific data in our Skilled Workforce Development Resources page to provide members with information about their local residential construction labor market.

The updated data includes:

  • Average Annual Wages for Select Construction Trades: The average state wages for 17 construction specialty trade contractors, based on 2015 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
  • The Workforce Supply and Projected Workforce Demand: The number of payroll residential construction workers (including part-time employees) in each state in 2014, and an estimate of how many full-time workers are needed for single-family and multifamily construction, as well as residential remodeling, in 2016.

Other updates to the resources page include a presentation template that you can customize with the updated data for your state. Use this presentation to help educators direct their students toward meaningful employment and career choices.

Visit NAHB’s Skilled Workforce Development Resources to access tools you can use in your community, including brochures, posters, videos, customizable op-eds and social media posts. NAHB will continue to periodically add more resources to support HBAs and their members in highlighting the countless benefits of various careers in the construction industry.
