Housing permits were issued at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,170,000, an increase of 3.5 percent from July and well above analysts' consensus expectations of 1,160,000 as reported by Bloomberg.  The July rate was revised to 1,130,000 from the 1,119,000 originally reported.  The August permitting rate was 12.5 percent higher than the seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,040,000 in August 2014.
