www.rockproducts.com ROCK products • July 2015 • 25 Estimated production-for-consumption of construction sand and gravel in the first quarter of 2015 increased from first quarter 2014 levels in six of the nine geographic divi- sions. The largest increases in percentages were recorded in the East North Central and West North Central divisions. Production-for-consumption increased in 27 of the 45 states that were estimated. The five leading states were, in descending order of production-for-consumption, Texas, California, Arizona, Washington and Colorado. Their com- bined total production-for-consumption was 67.4 Mt, which was an increase of 6 percent compared with that in the first quarter of 2014. s The quarterly sample survey generates production-for-con- sumption estimates by quarters, based on information reported voluntarily by a limited number of producers. In most quarters, a few companies may report amounts sold in the current quarter that vary greatly from the amounts reported in the prior-year period. This change in sales is almost never an indicator of the change in the demand in the state as a whole. The reason can be the opening or closing of an operation, weather or an exter- nal force that only the company or one of its operations expe- rienced. Previously reported data are occasionally revised, and the estimated quantities then recalculated. The latest release of the quarterly Mineral Industry Surveys contains the most recent estimated totals and supersedes previously published reports.
