Historic Residential Building Permit Data

The following is information on Residential Building Permits and pertinent total value by year.  The table provides the year, the number of units and the total value.  The data on the US Census site is not completely accurate, for instance, several multi-family structures have been constructed in the past decade, the Census Bureau only lists on of these.  For that reason I am giving total number of units and not trying to break the data down by whether they are single family or multi-family.  The data also does not relate to whether the units are the results of teardowns or simply new construction.  Given the total number of units created, it would appear to be a combination of teardowns and new construction.  I have added the average value information based upon the data provided.
