Bus/Financial - Construction / Civil Engineering
Russian term or phrase: ввод в действие общей площади жилых домов
Context - socioeconomic indicators for the different Russian regions

Does this mean the total area of housing 'commissioned' (i.e. ordered, but not necessarily constructed yet)? I think it refers to the total area that actually became usable, but I have no idea how we describe this in English.
Any ideas very welcome!

neutral  Dorene Cornwell: I am amused at the idea of measuring new housing stock by square meters rather than some kind of household units even though in the US we do talk about the square footage of homes on the market.

  -> Area is not often mentioned here either, but if it's given in the original, I think you have to translate it.

agree  Igor Blinov: total (floor/residential) area ?
