Release Information

Each month, CYSTAT reports the national total of building permits by 23 types of residential and non-residential real estate in Cyprus. Each type is reported in terms of value, area, and number of permits. Monthly from January 2003, with a lag of six to eight weeks.

"Big" projects are those with areas greater than 900 square meters.

Project type is classified by the numeric coding "CC 1996," sections 11 (111, 112, 113), 12 (121-127), 2, 3 and 4.

Measurements

  • Number of permits
  • Number of dwelling units
  • Value - CYP (2003-2007), EUR (2008-present)

For reported data, none. Moody's Analytics produces seasonally adjusted supplements, for which we recalculate seasonal factors annually.

There is no methodology for building permits.  Full methodologies for CYSTAT's other construction datasets are provided online, along with the surveys used.
