The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of a national blast shelter on the construction industry resources in the United States. Seven national shelter programs were assumed, each in increasing order capable of providing a higher degree of protection. Population was projected. Each program was costed in dollars for that portion of the population protected as distributed and projected for 1965, 1970, and 1975. Data related to capacity of construction, design, material and equipment, available and useful real estate, and other resources were collected and adjusted to a common descriptor, dollars. The dollars were then presented for base year 1965 and for years 1970 and 1975. The requirements were then balanced against the available resources and the deficits noted. Author
