Forthcoming publications

This schedule gives the planned publication dates of all of the department’s annual, quarterly and compendium statistical releases for the coming year.

For reasons of brevity, we have omitted the monthly release of statistics on UK international sea passengers, SPAS0107, usually released on the second Wednesday of each calendar month.

Please note the release date for publication of the ‘Rail Passenger Numbers and Crowding weekdays in major cities in England and Wales: 2018’ has been moved to the 24th July. This date has been changed due to delays in the receipt of some train operators’ data that is required to ensure the quality of the published data.

Department for Transport no longer asks transport questions on the British Social Attitudes (BSA) survey. These statistics are now covered in the National Travel Attitudes Study (NTAS), the first series of which was published in May 2019, and included BSA 2018 data. As such, there will be no July 2019 BSA publication.

Please note that the upcoming releases of Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation Statistics have been retitled Renewable Fuel Statistics. This is to reflect the need to report under additional legislation and to improve clarity.
