Authorized construction of Northeast housing units in August falls over same month last year

The total number of housing units authorized but not started in August 2019 for the United States' Northeast region was 11,300, compared to 15,500 for August 2018, according to figures released jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Unadjusted statistics are gathered from the Census Bureau's Building Permits Survey and the Survey of Construction.

The surveys provide current national and regional data on the construction of new privately owned housing units authorized by building permits.

The results provide insight on the nation's current economic activity, and are used by business and industry stakeholders to help gauge supply and demand.
