US Housing Starts are the total number of single family houses that started construction in a given month. Housing starts can be viewed as a forward looking metric to gauge the outlook for the economy. This metric most notably crashed during the 2008-2009 housing crisis, which was the main cause of the recession. Housing starts reached as low as 478K (on a seasonally adjusted annual rate basis) in 2009 before beginning to recover.
