CIRB Adds California Housing Unit Forecast Reports to Data Collection

SACRAMENTO--()--CIRB (Construction Industry Research Board), the industry’s premier source for residential and commercial building permit statistics, has joined forces with Santa Barbara-based consulting firm, the California Economic Forecast, to create customizable, county-level housing unit forecast reports with a 3- and 5-year outlook. The reports were officially released to the public on September 1, 2016.

CIRB has previously included total unit forecasts for the current and following year from various academic and economic sources in their Annual Building Permit Summary report publications. Forecast data by individual California county, year and category of new residential units (single-, multi-family and/or total) can now be requested from CIRB or purchased from their online store anytime.

Providing customizable and accurate permit data at an affordable rate to the construction industry, state agencies, universities and various private sector organizations is a priority for CIRB.
