Building Permits

Building permits are a leading indicator of economic activity, measuring the dollar value of construction permits for residential and non-residential buildings. Building permits are an important indicator for raw materials and employment demand, and have a significant effect on related industries such as construction, banking, real estate and manufacturing as the issuance of a building permit is one of the first steps in the construction process. Building permits can indicate positive or negative trends in the construction industry and overall economy.
