Important technological innovations were introduced during this era that directly impacted the housing market, including improved building techniques, the street car, the automobile and the generation of electric power. These developments all contributed to a relatively high and stable level of housing production with minimal direct government involvement. By 1916, about 11 million dwelling units had been added to non-farm housing stock since 1880.
