Ivory-Boyer Construction Database

The Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute, in partnership with the Ivory-Boyer Real Estate Center, tracks building permit activity across the state, publishing the quarterly Ivory-Boyer Construction Report and maintaining the Ivory-Boyer Construction Database.

The construction report provides an in-depth analysis of both residential and non-residential trends. The public-use database contains 40 years of detailed monthly permit data for Utah localities. Real estate professionals, planners, economists, researchers, business leaders, and public officials rely on the report and database to make informed decisions.
