New data from the Census Bureau show which states have the highest number of framing contractors, and how many of those establishments keep inventory.
The numbers below came out this year. We created this chart based on the government's 2012 Economic Census. The raw data was sorted to rank number of framing contractor businesses per state from highest to lowest.
California, New York, and Florida come out on top with the
highest number of framing contractors, and Hawaii, West Virginia, and The
District sit at the bottom. However, across the board, the majority of
companies do not keep an inventory on hand.
