Building permits in Norway, January 1983 - April 2022:

The data series span the period from January 1983 to April 2022. During that time, the average value for Norway was 2172 building permits with a minumum of 761 building permits in July 2009 and a maximum of 4138 building permits in June 2017. The latest number is 1848, a change of -42.34% from the previous data point of 3205 building permits and a change of -38.26% from a year ago when the level was 2993 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.
