The article presents news related to business. Housing statistics improved 0.6 percent in August 2004, to a seasonally adjusted level of 2 million units, the Commerce Department reported, recovering from earlier declines and returning to their 2004 high-water mark set in March 2004. Reversing a strong run-up in August, builder confidence in the market for new single-family homes edged down in August, but still remained even with prior-year levels, the Washington-based National Association of Home Builders reported.
