Texpoec, Other/Just Looking in Dallas, TX

In a June 19, 2009 U.S. News article you cited Dallas area office vacancy rates back in 1975. What was your source.?

From the article: "Although the oil crises of the 1970s put a drag on the national economy, they had a positive impact on economic conditions and house prices in Texas. During the period, nonresidential construction activity in Texas more than quadrupled, while office vacancy rates fell from 15 percent to 7.6 percent in Dallas and from 7.8 percent to 5.7 percent in Houston."

I'd probably go back to Federal Reserve reports, I think they track it, or one of the big commercial real estate companies like Trammel Crow, Cushman, CBRE, JLL or someone like that. I'm sure they will have historical numbers in their reports. You might also check with the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M. They track lots of numbers.

I am unconfirmed what you are asking ... confirm article published? Or searching for commercial leases % vacant vs. occupied.

James is correct off his statement is there a footnote to article published?
