Construction spending ticks up, led by housing

by HBA of North Georgia on 02/09/19

What happened: Economists surveyed by Econoday had forecast a 0.2% increase, but October figures were revised down. Outlays in November were 3.4% higher than a year ago, and for the first 11 months of 2018, were 4.5% higher than the same period in the prior year.

Big picture: Residential construction spending was up 3.4% during the month, and was 0.6% higher for the year. That’s good news for the supply-starved housing sector. In November, overall private-sector spending was 1.3% higher for the month, edging out a 0.9% decline in public-sector spending.
