Residential Building Permits

Summary: Number of building permits and valuation for new privately-owned residential construction

This database contains building permits for new privately-owned residential construction. This includes the number of new units and construction valuation. Valuations are expressed in dollars.  Some of the data is imputed.  The Bureau of the Census associates only one zip code per city or county, even though the city or county may contain multiple zip codes. Because of this aggregation, searches for some zip codes may not return data.
