Unlocking regional data through engaging visualizations
Explore Council data: Residential Building Permits
Each year the research team at Metropolitan Council asks cities and townships across the Twin Cities region
about the building permits they've issued for new residential construction projects. We verify data from the returned surveys by working with local governments, and comparing it to federal data sources, such as the Residential Construction Branch of the Manufacturing and Construction Division of the U.S. Census Bureau. This data may be periodically updated to reflect corrections.
