A national survey of US millwork producers was conducted during late 1991. Exactly 500 respondents, an 18.2% response rate, provided data on 1990 characteristics of their establishments. The survey differs from the US Department of Commerce Census of Manufacturers by including all producers of millwork, not just those for which millwork is the principal activity.
Establishments are relatively small.
$2.99 sales per dollar of replacement cost
25.8% participate in national markets
10.8% participate in international markets
