The total number of housing units approved for construction in November 2019 for the United States' West region was 27,900, compared to 25,300 for November 2018, according to figures released jointly by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Unadjusted statistics are gathered from the Census Bureau's Building Permits Survey and the Survey of Construction.

The surveys provide current national and regional data on the construction of new privately owned housing units authorized by building permits.

The results provide insight on the nation's current economic activity, and are used by business and industry stakeholders to help gauge supply and demand.
