Building permits in Hungary, January 1998 - September 2021:

The data series span the period from January 1998 to September 2021. During that time, the average value for Hungary was 1290 building permits with a minumum of 242 building permits in January 2013 and a maximum of 3062 building permits in December 2000. The latest number is 1326, a change of 14.81% from the previous data point of 1155 building permits and a change of 22.21% from a year ago when the level was 1085 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.
