The latest number is 2235, a change of -24.75% from the previous data point of 2970 building permits and a change of 21.53% from a year ago when the level was 1839 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.
