Title: Residential Building Permits (2015) - Attribute Table
Edition: May 2017

Description:
Abstract:
This spreadsheet contains the attributes for the 2015 residential permit feature set. The information was gathered by surveying the region's 101 cities and 9 counties in the summer of 2016. They were asked for the Annual Housing Element Progress Report they submitted to the California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) 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.

Purpose:
Attributes related to location, building type, number of units, etc. for residential building permits reported to the State of California by jurisdictions in the San Francisco Bay Region for the 2015 calendar year. The permits were collected to assist the Association of Bay Area Governments' (ABAG) and Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) planning efforts.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
The attribute table was separated from the feature set and is now distributed as a separate Excel spreadsheet. An identification field (joinid) was added to the feature set and attribute spreadsheet so the attributes can be joined to the features. The attribute spreadsheet also had a field added to it to note which records were mapped as features (mapped).

Attribute:
Attribute_Label: mapped
Attribute_Definition:
Identifies whether the residential permit was geolocated. Geolocation relied on information available at the time the residential permit was processed. Attempts to geolocate the permit utilized the following steps:
1 - APN match using jurisdiction provided APN and ABAG parcel feature sets.
2 - Address look-up on county Assessor website to obtain APN and location when distributed parcel feature set is not as current as Assessor's records.
3 - Address look-up on realtor and contractor websites to obtain APN.
4 - Address look-up on web based address finders where parcel shapes are identified by address.
If a parcel could not be determined for a residential permit, it was not mapped.

When possible, permits assigned to a parcel that was not subdivided yet in the distributed version of the parcel feature set had its Assessors' Parcel Map downloaded and georeferenced so that the permit points could be placed where the new parcel would be once the parcel was subdivided in the distributed parcel feature set. If an Assessor's Parcel Map was unavailable the points were randomly placed within the non-subdivided parcel.
