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.

Due to work on the IT infrastructure, Train Operating Company Key Statistics was published on 6 July 2017 on the ORR website, rather than the data portal. Individual fact sheets for each individual operator are also available.

For any further information, please contact the statistics Head of Profession, Abby Sneade at rail.stats@orr.gsi.gov.uk or on 0207 282 2022.
