The seasonally adjusted annual spending rate has plunged 62.9 percent from a peak of $676.4 billion in March 2006 to its latest level of $250.8 billion in February 2010. This rate is a projection of a monthly spending total over a 12-month period, adjusted to account for typical seasonal fluctuations in construction activity.
