    Abstract

    Nine graphs illustrate econometric patterns of change that have occurred in the U.S. brick industry for well over six decades. Production is related to population, building activity, construction cost, brick price, and the mason trade. Eight sources of statistical data are cited. No explanation is given for the social, economic, or political reasons for the patterns of change. A loss of market share with time is clearly evident.
