Despite anecdotes and hearsay we receive from other education communities, we do not see diminution in the US Census Bureau construction spend rate reflected in the data that we examine every month. We will revisit the several sources we used to assemble the $300 billion figure we estimated in 2016. It is likely that the facility annual spend rate is closer to $500 now. Keep this in mind when you see the $300 billion figure elsewhere in this site.
