Shipments of portland and blended cement increased slightly in the first quarter of 2019 compared with the first quarter of 2018. This information was obtained from the USGS monthly survey of U.S. cement producers. The estimated production-for-consumption of construction aggregates in the first quarter of 2019 increased in five of the nine geographic divisions compared with that sold or used in the first quarter of 2018. Production-for-consumption increased in 25 of the 39 states that were estimated. The five leading states were, in descending order of pro- duction-for-consumption, Texas, Florida, California, North Carolina and Arizona.
