​This resource is a compilation of approvals of unincorporated and municipal permits, reflecting potential building activity for Palm Beach County.

The data for this Report are collected from the County’s Building Division, municipalities, and the Census Bureau. Due to delayed responses from various sources, the quarterly Building Permits Report is generally posted on this webpage by the end of the next quarter.

The second page of the Report contains data comparing the most recent quarter with the same quarter in the previous year. The percentile change between two quarters may or may not be reflective of a longer-term trend. Housing permits typically point to potential future construction activity and retail purchases, and are therefore considered to be a significant leading economic indicator.
