The rate of housing starts, a measure of new home construction in the US, has trended down since April 2022 as interest rates price many potential homebuyers out of the market (US News & World Report, National Association of Realtors). The question will be suspended on 30 June 2024 and the outcome determined using data provided by the US Census Bureau as reported by the Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) database for June 2024, expected in July 2024 (FRED). As of the launch of this question, housing starts totaled 1,418 thousand, or 1.418 million, in June 2023.
