Publication dates for statistics

This timetable lists the publication dates for all of ORR's Official Statistics. These include annual and quarterly statistical releases, factsheets and data tables. These dates are determined by availability of the data and are the earliest possible dates which we can publish the information. We publish all our statistics at the standard time of 9.30am.

Our statistical practice is regulated by the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR). The majority of our statistical releases have been independently reviewed by the OSR and are labelled 'accredited official statistics' (called 'National Statistics' in the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007). For more information, see ORR compliance with the Code of Practice.

The Official Statistics published for Delay compensation claims and Disabled Persons Railcards (DPRC) and assisted journeys data are published on a quarterly basis, however the data relate to railway periods.

In addition to our Official Statistics, we publish operational data supplied to us from Network Rail on a periodic (4-weekly) basis. These data are made available on our data portal as soon as the data are loaded and validated into our systems, this is typically 10 to 12 working days after the period ends. These tables are for Passenger rail performance (Table 3114, Table 3124, Table 3138, Table 3144, Table 3157, Table 3167, Table 3184, Table 3194) and Freight rail usage and performance (Table 1314).

For any further information, please contact the statistics Head of Profession, Lyndsey Melbourne at rail.stats@orr.gov.uk or on 0207 282 3978.

* NOTE: The assisted journeys data, due to be published on 18th January, has been delayed. This is due to data quality issues related to the inclusion of some unbooked assists, which we were made aware of shortly before publication. We would like to apologise to users for this late notice change.

We are investigating with our data supplier and will update the publication date in due course.
