Overall construction spending in the United States increased by 0.1 percent during January, to a seasonally adjusted and annualized rate (SAAR) of $943.1 billion -- the highest level since March 2009. The increase derived entirely from a nearly $4.0 billion (1.1 percent) rise in private residential spending. Public construction spending declined by $2.1 billion (0.8 percent) while the private non-residential component fell by $0.6 billion (0.2 percent).
