Release Information

For Argentina, construction permits. The total includes new construction and expansions, for residential and non-residential buildings. Monthly from 1991.

Permit: Refers to the case or administrative process through which approval is sought for the erection of the building. Generally, each is entitled to a work permit, so this variable largely reflects the number of works that are licensed.

Municipalities considered in the survey: The list of the 188 municipalities included in the survey of Building Permits is based on these criteria:

  • Municipalities with more than 20,000 inhabitants according to the Census of Population and Housing 1991.
  • Provincial capitals.
  • Municipalities with fewer than 20,000 inhabitants (according to the 1991 Population Census) that are integrated into larger agglomerates.
  • Municipalities with fewer than 20,000 inhabitants (according to the Population Census 1991), of particular interest from the standpoint of building complex.

The complete list can be found in Table 1 of each file available in the Historical Series of Building Permits.
