Building permits in Qatar, January 2016 - October 2021:

The data series span the period from January 2016 to October 2021. During that time, the average value for Qatar was 288 building permits with a minumum of 115 building permits in May 2020 and a maximum of 573 building permits in January 2021. The latest number is 251, a change of -10.04% from the previous data point of 279 building permits and a change of 2.03% from a year ago when the level was 246 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.
