Building permits in Portugal, January 2007 - March 2022:

The data series span the period from January 2007 to March 2022. During that time, the average value for Portugal was 2062 building permits with a minumum of 1083 building permits in August 2015 and a maximum of 4835 building permits in January 2007. The latest number is 2432, a change of 13.8% from the previous data point of 2137 building permits and a change of -7.91% from a year ago when the level was 2641 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.
