A Statistical Anomaly??

Did anyone take a close look at the new home sales released Monday? Yeah they dropped 26.4% year over year, no surprise there. But if you look region by region here's the breakdown:

The drop, which marked the worst sales year on record, represented weakness in every part of the country except the Northeast, where sales posted a 1.6 percent advance. Sales declined by 32.2 percent in the West, 26.7 percent in the Midwest and 26.3 percent in the South.

I don't have any particular knowledge about those numbers just found it staggering that 3 regions dropped by over 25% and then 1 region actually increased.
