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.

We are adapting our statistics publications in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Please see the background information for further details on these changes.
