Census Bureau Releases 2022 Annual Building Permits Data

Press Release Number CB23-TPS.52

May 1, 2023 —The U.S. Census Bureau released final 2022 annual estimates of housing units authorized by building permits. Data include estimates at the national level, census region, census division, state, metropolitan area, county, and permit-issuing place. Two new accompanying map-based data visualizations allow users to view and compare data at the state, county, and metro areas with greater ease than ever before.

The Annual Building Permits Survey provides national, state, and local statistics on new privately owned residential construction. All places issuing building permits for privately owned residential structures are covered in the survey. More than 99% of all privately owned residential buildings constructed are in permit-issuing places.

Data are also available using the data time series and visualization tool. Users can compare data from the available geographies and timeframes, as well as download their own customized time series.

The data files and visualization tools are available here: <www.census.gov/construction/bps/>.
