Research Suggests Apartments Contribute $1.3 Trillion to U.S. Economy

Doug Bibby, president of the National Multifamily Housing Council (NMHC), joined for a video interview to discuss research on the economic impact of the apartment industry in the United States.

The NMHC published a report this year indicating that the apartment industry contributes $ 1.3 trillion in economic activity to the U.S. economy every year, which translates into 12 million jobs. That total includes $ 100 billion in construction spending, $ 190 billion in operating apartment communities and $ 1 trillion in resident spending.
