Statistical series

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 monthly releases from this list. There are three such releases, statistics on reliability on Highways Agency’s motorway and ‘A’ roads and statistics on vehicles registered for the first time are usually released on the second Thursday of each calendar month. Statistics on UK international sea passengers is usually released on the second Wednesday of each calendar month:

Statistics on reliability on Highways Agency’s motorway and ‘A’ roads - CGN0104

Please note this will be published up to and including June 2015 only. We have proposed publishing statistics on a new reliability measure for Highways Agency roads later in 2015 as part of a wider package of changes in this area.

Statistics on vehicles registered for the first time - VEH0150

Statistics on UK international sea passengers - SPAS0107
