Building permits indicators

The building permits indicators measure the quarterly evolution in the number of dwellings used for residential purposes, square metres of residential useful floor area and square metres of non-residential area using the Classification of types of Construction (CC).

Starting from this edition, ISTAT publishes seasonally-adjusted time series of building permit indicators. Moreover, the frequency of data publication changes from half-yearly to quarterly.

During the first half of 2017, the residential construction units increased compared with the same period of the previous year (+11.7% in the number of dwellings and +11.8% in useful floor area). The non-residential buildings increased by 37.7% compared with the same period of 2016.

The number of dwellings in new buildings increased by 9.5% in the first quarter and it increased by 13.6% in the second quarter with respect to first and second quarter 2016.

The useful floor area increased by 12.3% in the first quarter and by 11.4% in the second quarter compared with the same periods of 2016.

Non-residential area increased by 49.8% in the first quarter of 2017 (influenced by the comparison with the first quarter of 2016 which is one of the lowest values ​​since 2000) and by 28.1% in the second quarter with respect to first and second quarter 2016.
