New Residential Sales

01/27/2016 10:00 AM EST

Sales of new single-family houses in December 2015 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 544,000. This is 10.8 percent (+/- 17.1%)* above the revised November 2015 estimate of 491,000.

December 2015: +10.8* % change
November 2015 (r): +1.9* % change

 

 (*) The 90% confidence interval includes zero. The Census Bureau does not have sufficient statistical evidence to conclude that the actual change is different from zero.

 (°) Statistical significance is not applicable or not measurable for these surveys. The Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories and Orders estimates are not based on a probability sample, so we can neither measure the sampling error of these estimates nor compute confidence intervals.

(r) Revised.

All estimates are seasonally adjusted except for the Rental Vacancy Rate, Home Ownership Rate, and Quarterly Financial Report for Retail Trade. None of the estimates are adjusted for price changes.
