Who Can Benefit from Building Permit Data?

building permit data

Every company – online or physically landlocked, small business or mega-corporation, service or sales – can benefit from building permit data. Can you think of any organization that would not need information that is one of the data sets used on a national level to review and predict economic trends?

At the national level, the New Housing Permits Data series
is one of the 11 data sets comprising the Composite Index
of Leading Economic Indicators.

New housing starts and remodeling information actually benefit businesses more on a local level than nationally. This is especially true when used as economic predictors; marketing campaigns can be developed using business permits data.
