Sales of new single-family houses in May 2020 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 676,000. This is 16.6 percent (+/- 15.5%) above the revised April 2020 estimate of 580,000.

May 2020: +16.6 % change
April 2020 (r): -5.2* % 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, Quarterly Financial Report for Retail Trade, and Quarterly Services Survey. None of the estimates are adjusted for price changes.
