The latest number is 1044, a change of 5.35% from the previous data point of 991 building permits and a change of -21.27% from a year ago when the level was 1326 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.
