SYDNEY, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Australian approvals to build new
homes in November, seasonally adjusted, released by the
Australian Bureau of Statistics on Thursday.
Seasonally adjusted Nov Oct m/m pct
Private sector houses 7,518 7,541 -0.3
Total houses 7,655 7,643 +0.2
Total private dwellings 13,071 12,584 +3.9
Total dwelling units 13,307 12,932 +2.9
Annual change in total approvals to build new homes: +13.2
Forecasts centred on a rise of 5.0 percent on the month for
total approvals, a Reuters poll showed. The series is volatile
and has swung wildly in recent months, in part due the timing of
some very large apartment towers.
