Building permits in Israel, Q1 2016 - Q3 2021:

The data series span the period from Q1 2016 to Q3 2021. During that time, the average value for Israel was 2353 building permits with a minumum of 1720 building permits in Q2 2020 and a maximum of 2977 building permits in Q3 2016. The latest number is 2232, a change of -5.3% from the previous data point of 2357 building permits and a change of 3.24% from a year ago when the level was 2162 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.
