The Department of Housing and Urban Development, in its State of the Cities 
2000 report, finds that land used for single-family housing has been 
growing by 2.3 million acres per year since 1994.  They figure that's a 2% 
per year increase, or twice the rate of population growth.  The report used 
to be available on-line at www.huduser.org, but now they refer one to the 
number 1-800-245-2691 for availability information.  There's also some good 
information at the Sierra Club website, www.sierraclub.org/sprawl.
