Excerpt from article:

According to the latest Census data, Texas gets credit for 20 percent of the increase in new homes built in the United States between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2011.

Nationally, the number of new homes built during that period increased by 607,000. Texas accounted for 121,000 of those. That’s three times as many as California, which came in second in the number of new homes built.

And that’s from 2010 – 2011; Imagine what next year’s stats will show!
