Statement from U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on New Residential Construction in May 2011

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–June 16, 2011.  The Commerce Department’s U.S. Census Bureau today released data on new residential construction for May 2011.  Permits for new housing units jumped 8.7 percent in May.  Private-sector analysts had expected a 0.7 percent decline.  Housing starts advanced 3.5 percent in May. Private-sector analysts had expected a 4.8 percent increase.  Both permits and starts in April were revised up.

“While May’s housing data exceeded expectations, we recognize the imperative for a continued and full economic recovery that includes a healthy housing sector as well as continued job growth” said Locke.  “This administration is committed to pursuing policies that will do just that, helping America win the future,” he said.
