Going up means you need to strengthen your ceiling, beams, structural walsl etc, as the ceiling of a single level dwelling is never designed to take the live & dead loads of liveable areas.
Building out has none of these problems, hence I think usually it's cheaper. Also less scaffolding involved (scaffolding hire can be expensive the longer you rent it).
