Release Information

The dataset provides annual region-level information from Poland on:

  • The dwelling stock
  • The total number of permits granted for construction of new residential buildings including total and one-dwelling residential buildings
  • The total number of new buildings completed as well as number of new residential and non-residential buildings constructed.

All variables above include dwellings that are under single ownership.

A dwelling is a premise for a permanent residence of persons - built or re-modeled for residential purposes and structurally separated by fixed walls within a building. Dwelling stock refers to the total number of dwellings in residential and non-residential buildings. It does not include collective accommodation places.

A building permit is an administrative document issued by architectural and administrative body that allows construction works to be initiated.

A completed building (residential and non-residential) is one for which completion of construction has been submitted by the investor to the building control authorities, and said administrative office has not issued an objection (in the form of a decision) or for which the investor has obtained a permit (in the form of a decision) - issued by the building control authorities.

The data is provided by the Central Statistical Office of Poland (GUS). Each sub region included is composed of various municipalities or communities referred to as gminas in Polish.

Data is subject to revision

Dwelling stocks from 1995-2002 refer to inhabited dwellings. In 2003 and proceeding years, dwelling stock refers to both inhabited and uninhabited dwellings.
