Building permits in Finland, January 1995 - September 2021:

The data series span the period from January 1995 to September 2021. During that time, the average value for Finland was 1358 building permits with a minumum of 309 building permits in January 2015 and a maximum of 3723 building permits in June 2006. The latest number is 898, a change of 20.7% from the previous data point of 744 building permits and a change of 1.93% from a year ago when the level was 881 building permits.

The number of building permits is considered a leading macroeconomic indicator as it typically grows a few months ahead of an economic expansion and declines a few months before an economic slowdown. See more information about that indicator on our Building permits page.
