Statistical Services produces a large number of outputs each year.

Statistical outputs

  • Statistical First Releases publish data for the first time from a new data set.
  • Statistical Bulletins are later more detailed analysis of a data set already published. 
  • Statistical Articles relate to one-off analyses for which there are no updates planned.

Nearly all of our statistical outputs are official statistics as defined by the Statistics and Registration Service Act 2007 and are produced according to the principles of the Code of Practice for Statistics. Where they are not official statistics, the principles of the Code of Practice for Statistics are still followed.
