Housing starts report delayed until Nov. 26

In the aftermath of October's government shutdown, housing starts remain the only piece of data that has yet to be released after the initial delay.

Rather than postpone September's housing starts data a couple weeks, the U.S. Census Bureau will release figures concurrently for September and October on Nov. 26 at 8:30 a.m.

In the most recent housing starts report, the bureau reported total housing starts for August at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 891,000, essentially flat compared to the previous month.
