Idaho: Building permits

The number of building permits for single-family homes and multi-unit family dwellings indicates the building activity and growth of the region.
 
In Idaho in 2016,
 
  • there were 10,017 building permits,
  • 97 percent of building permits were for single-family homes, and,
  • 60 single-family permits were granted per 10,000 population.
 

To get the most out of this indicator . . .

Ask questions:

· How quickly is the local housing stock growing?

· Is there more growth among single-family or multi-unit dwellings?

Look at other indicators:

· “Population: Population” – Is housing growth keeping up with population growth?

· “Housing: Housing affordability” – Is local housing affordable?

Dig deeper:

· Look at the county rankings for your state and/or view maps to see how your county compares to others.
