This dataset was created to summarize and analyze development trends of residential housing production in Ramsey County.
This dataset consists of summary data for owner-occupied and rental housing production, based on building permits issued during each calendar year by cities and townships within Ramsey County. Data is collected via an annual survey of community officials, in conjunction with the collection of data on residential building permits.
The data were obtained through an annual survey sent to communities by the Metropolitan Council in conjunction with collection of residential building permits. Respondents are asked to provide project information for the number of new housing units produced in their community annually.
The data on returned surveys were verified by Metropolitan Council staff through various means including parcel data, contact with community staff, community websites, and comparison to data in the Council's Service Availability Charge (SAC) reports where possible.
For this data, projects are counted at the time local units of government-issued building permits.
