Statistics

At ORR, we publish a range of statistics about railway performance, rail usage and safety – to support performance evaluation, analysis and decision-making for the railway industry.

The range of statistical products that we produce reflects the needs of our users. For those with a general interest in rail, we produce statistical releases that provide commentary and interpretation on trends across a variety of rail-related themes.  For those more interested in more detailed data, the data tables are available on the ORR data portal.

Statistical releases

We publish regular commentary on rail statistics under eight themes – including performance and safety. These releases are designed to help the user interpret the data and are accredited National Statistics.
