As sole provider of construction starts and project data analysis support to the United States Census Bureau, McGraw-Hill Construction, part of The McGraw-Hill Companies (NYSE: MHP), today announced that the Census Bureau has renewed its analytics contract with the company in a multi-million dollar deal for a period of five years.
