CLIPBOARD : Residential Permit Value Share

September 08, 1990

During the first six months of the year, the most recent period for which information is available, 56% of the value of new construction permits issued in Orange County was for new homes (both single- and multifamily types). That's down slightly from the 59% for the same period last year and a large dip from the 66% at the same point in 1988.

Major differences do exist within the county: 89% of the value of all new permits in La Palma was in housing; just 17% in Santa Ana. In 14 cities and the unincorporated areas more than half the permit values were for residences. Another 14 cities were more invested in non-residential projects. Here's a look city by city:
