An in-depth analysis of the trends surrounding the construction industry of Ada County was undertaken in order to find any indication of the impacts of recent global events, specifically the outbreak of Covid-19, while also comparing those findings to the time period around the 2007-2009 Great Recession.

Overall, the collection of this data is meant to serve as a thorough comparison of trends observable in the data. The amount of permits submitted and the overall valuation of property / permits allow us to examine the effect that the recent Covid-19 pandemic has had on the construction industry in Ada County.
