Shutdown impact continues: Economic indicators pushed back

By ,

Don't expect to get caught up soon on many of your favorite economic indicators.

In the wake of the 16-day partial government shutdown, the U.S. Census Bureau announced Monday that many of its data releases will be delayed.

Some will be out a week later, while others are being pushed two weeks or more because of the recent lapse in federal funding.

So if you were counting on a September report on new residential sales on Thursday, forget it. It’s now coming out on Dec. 4, according to the Census.

The September release on new residential construction, which was expected last week, is now coming out on Nov. 26.

Good news: The August construction spending report that was set for Oct. 1, is out today.

The schedule will get back to normal with most of the October and November releases set for November and December, according to the Census.

For a full list of new dates for the 13 indicators, visit the bureau’s website.
