About Housing Statistics

Key housing indicators include housing starts, vacancy rates and housing prices. Housing starts are a key indicator of economic strength and a reflection of demand for residential housing.

The number of single- and multiple-unit housing starts offer an indication of the construction building sector's performance. Housing starts, however, are not distributed evenly across months and should be interpreted in the context of other economic indicators.
