Housing studies focused on demand to the neglect of supply and the housebuilders themselves ‘have been understudied and 11 Ball, Rebuilding Construction, pp. 175–80. Introduction 15 misunderstood’;12 he is perhaps unfair on Grebler and Eichler (whose father founded one of the larger housebuilders). Although discussing a market somewhat different to Britain, both authors provide excellent insights into the operation of the speculative developer, accompanied by a wider ranging discussion of individual firms than has appeared in British texts.

The use of a unit measure is also how the industry statistics are produced, which facilitates the calculation of concentration ratios; and the approach has a parallel with other sectors of the economy (as instanced above) where it is also normal to use a physical count of output. A similar discussion of measurement alternatives for Wardley, ‘On the Ranking of Firms’, p. 131. As output also includes flats, the expression ‘units’ is often used, but when a company’s output of houses is mentioned, it can be taken to include flats as well, unless the context clearly suggests otherwise.
