The latest number is 16159, a change of 8.55% from the previous data point of 14886 building permits and a change of 14% from a year ago when the level was 14175 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.
