Data Notes

Printable permits became available in early 2016. Please see the description above to learn how to access these documents. The temporal coverage for this dataset was initially listed as "2013-01-11 to PRESENT". We've adjusted the start date to 2014-01-01 to reflect the i_date value when the volume of records suggests that all records are actually present. The automatic detection of the temporal coverage has been deactivated since there are records with seemingly invalid dates in the past and far future.
