This monthly U.S. housing report released Wednesday showed another month of growth in construction of new residential units.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, single-family permits rose 0.6 percent in June. The national report showed that completions of single-family homes were down 1.1 percent from May, but completions in the Midwest bounded by 4.5 percent.

The Star Tribune notes that the report doesn't break down data at the metro level, but cites its June story that showed construction in the Twin Cities was relatively strong, with the most June permits issued since 2007.
