Happy Housing

Between 1998 and 2002, before the housing market went haywire, total housing starts averaged 1.65 million units and the population of the US averaged 282 million persons. Over the next five years the US population will average about 320 million. As a result, I expect housing starts to steadily rise to a plateau of about 1.725 million units. Absent increasing bank regulations, starts would be expected to exceed 1.825 million.
