Release Information

The source publishes annual data on residential starts and permits for France's NUTS 2 and NUTS 3 regions. 

The data is obtained from the Sit@del2 database, which is collected from the building permit forms that are processed by the instructor centers. On a monthly basis, the information that is collected is sent to the statistical office of the Ministry of the Environment, Energy and Marine (MEEM) and the Ministry of Housing, Equality and Rurality (MLETR).  

A construction is considered to have started after the receipt of the declaration of site opening (DOC). This receipt is sent by the petitioner. 

A construction permit is considered the authorization of the construction of a dwelling by a public authority. 

National level data is reported as France Metropolitaine.

Data is subject to revisions.
