NOTES: Expenditure refers to the value of work done on construction projects underway during a given period of time, regardless of when work on each individual project was started or when payment was made to the contractors. Total transportation is the sum of Air, Land, and Water transportation expenditure. Expenditure on water is not separately presented because of lack of monthly estimates. Air and Land transportation are defined the same as for state and local public expenditures. General commercial warehousing includes commercial warehouses, storage warehouses, and distribution buildings. Transportation equipment manufacturing includes construction related to transportation equipment-producing industries. Parking includes commercial parking lots and garages.

Seasonally adjusted annual rate for an individual month is an estimate of what the annual total would be if non-seasonal conditions were the same all year.
