Title: Housing Permits (2014)
Geospatial_Data_Presentation_Form: vector digital data

Description:
Abstract:
This feature set contains the geocoded results of housing permits issued in the San Francisco Bay Region for the 2014 calendar year. The information was gathered by surveying the Bay Area's 101 cities and 9 counties in the summer of 2015. They were asked for the annual Housing Element Progress Reports they submit to the California Department of Housing and Community Development and permitting spreadsheets that contained location information. After the permit information was compiled, each jurisdiction was sent a copy of their list to verify the accuracy of the list and provide them with an opportunity to comment and make corrections.

The permit addresses were re-geocoded using the Google Geocode API in July 2016. This work was done in an effort to better enable permit points to intersect parcels. Of the 5,570 housing permits gathered for the region, 5,334 were able to be geocoded using this method.

Field and attribute definitions can be found in the Entity and Attribute Information section of this metadata.

Purpose:
Housing permits issued by jurisdictions in the San Francisco Bay Region for the 2014 calendar year. The permits were collected to assist the Association of Bay Area Governments' housing planning efforts.
