These Series Represent The Sum Of Five Building Categories: Religious, Educational, Hospital And Institutional, Social And Recreational, And Miscellaneous Nonresidential. Separate Data For Each Group Are Available In The Sources For 1920 And Following Years. For The Years 1915-19, Data On This Category Are Not Separable From "Commercial Buildings." This Category Covers All Private Nonfarm Nonresidential Buildings Not Included In "Industrial" Or "Commercial," Except Buildings Constructed By Railroads, Local Transit Companies, And Public Utility Companies For Their Own Use. For A Detailed Listing Of Types Of Buildings Included, See "Construction Reports, Construction Activity," C30-61 Supplement, U.S. Bureau Of The Census, October 1964, P. 73. Because Of A Change In The Classification Of One Type Of Warehouse From "Miscellaneous Nonresidential" To "Commercial," The Data Beginning In 1956 For These Two Categories, And For "Other Private Nonresidential Buildings" Are Not Strictly Comparable To Those For The Period Before That Date. See Lipsey & Preston, P. 262 For Details. For Further Information See The Introductory Notes On Bls-Dept.
