Changes to publication schedule for economic statistics

In order to ensure that it is effectively carrying out its role of helping users understand the economy, ONS has recently reviewed its current model for publishing economic statistics.


It was concluded that in order to present statistics in a more joined-up and consistent way it would be beneficial to revise the existing approach of publishing a number of free-standing statistical bulletins, each dealing with a newly released statistic and with different datasets sometimes released simultaneously, and other times not.

From January 2017 ONS will therefore create new ‘theme days’ for related statistics to be released together. This will allow ONS to present a more coherent and consistent picture of UK economic activity, thereby better supporting public discussion about the UK economy.

Revised publication schedule

The order of theme days within each month, and the outputs that will be published on each theme day, are set out below. The exact dates will change each month, but the format will be as follows.
