The Construction Industry Research and Policy Center (CIRPC) is a unit of the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee. Its purpose is a result of efforts beginning in the 1970’s to obtain more accurate information about the construction industry in order to enhance the operation of various government programs. Funding for the development of a system of econometric models and databases providing detailed information, both historical and current, on construction activity for each county in the nation was the foundation of the center, which is now organized into the following units:
- Construction Safety and Health
- Statistical Analysis, Data Analysis, and Special Studies
- Davis-Bacon Wage Surveys
Additional information about each function may be found at the departmental website.
