Join us as the findings of a study, conducted by Southeastern Louisiana University Business Research Center, are presented by Herb Holloway, Research Economist.

This study, commissioned by NHBA, focused on the three Northshore parishes of St. Tammany, Tangipahoa, and Washington. St. Tammany and Tangipahoa parishes have been among the fastest-growing parishes in Louisiana for the last several decades, resulting in significant residential construction activity in the area. Research included property tax, number of jobs, employee compensation, local sales tax, and more. Get the facts on how the home building industry impacts a community.
