FAQ

What is the difference between building permits and housing starts data?

Building permits data are based on those units authorized to be built.

Housing starts data are based on the actual breaking of ground for footings or foundations or beginning a new superstructure on top of an existing foundation. 

Statistics for these two types of data are available at our New Residential Construction site.
