The Cement report contains a summary of purchase volume in units for a wide variety of cement usage in each of the 50 states. Market shares are also reported separately for owner-occupied dwellings for each of 32 geographic areas of the United States and renter-occupied dwellings for each of the nine Census Divisions.
