Publication dates

The publication timetable lists the publication dates for Official Statistics, the statistical releases and other statistics that we publish. Unless otherwise specified as Official Statistics, the publications are badged as National Statistics. These dates are determined by availability of the data and are the earliest possible dates which we can publish the information.

The Official Statistics published on the data portal for ‘Disabled Person’s Railcard (DPRC) and assisted journeys data’ and  ‘Network Rail Outputs and Indicators Key Statistics’ are published on a quarterly basis however the data relate to railway periods. For the start and end dates of railway periods, see the table on the data portal.

* The publication of the annual Occupational Health Official Statistics for 2016-17 - originally scheduled for 29 June 2017 - is now rescheduled for March 2018. The underlying data for this publication is supplied to the ORR by the Rail Standards and Safety Board (RSSB). RSSB introduced the new industry-wide Safety Management Intelligence System (SMIS) on 6 March 2017. It is currently prioritising work to address residual system issues and build Business Intelligence capability, and while this is ongoing the quality and completeness of the data for this year’s occupational health statistics cannot be fully assured. We expect to receive the raw data for this publication in early 2018.
