Department Statistics

The Department publishes Monthly and Weekly statistical reports containing detailed information regarding job filings for new buildings and alterations, permit issuance, signs, complaints and dispositions. These reports are described below. The information contained in these reports is supplied by the applicant and/or filing representative; therefore, the Department cannot guarantee its accuracy.

Another statistics report that provides the agency performance highlights and statistics is the Mayor’s Management Report (MMR). These reports are published by the Mayor’s Office of Operation twice a year. For other City agencies MMR reports, visit the Mayor’s Office of Operation website.

These reports can be downloaded in two formats, Excel 97 ® spreadsheet and Adobe® Acrobat® format. The Excel 97 ® spreadsheet format allows you to organize the information by borough, job or permit type, etc. All these files are self-extracting zipped files with .zip extension.

Mayor’s Management Report (MMR) – provides performance highlights and statistics for City agencies, as well as data on inquires received by the 311 Citizen Service Center. The MMR, which is mandated by the City Charter (Section 12), serves as a public report card on City services affecting the lives of New Yorkers. The MMR is released twice a year. The Preliminary MMR (PMMR) differs from the MMR in terms of its focus. The PMMR provides an early update of how the City is performing four months into the fiscal year. In contrast, the MMR, published each September, looks back retrospectively at the City's prior fiscal year performance.
