Official statistics: forthcoming publications

Next update: 7 May 2021

The Scottish Government provides a 12 month calendar of its statistical releases in spreadsheet format. This includes both Official and National Statistics publications. The month of the publication is provided at least twelve months before the publication, with an exact date provided around four to six weeks before final publication. This is in line with the requirements of the Code of Practice for Statistics.

The timetable below also includes releases for other statistics producers in Scotland, such as NHS Information Services Division and National Records of Scotland, as well as Crown and Arms Length Bodies.

Please note that the Coronavirus (COVID-19): Daily data for Scotland publication will continue to be updated daily during the pre-election period. This publication contains information on reported cases, deaths, patients in hospital and vaccinations. Some of the information within the publication is updated on a less regular basis.

To sort the forthcoming publications spreadsheet:

  1. ​Download and open the spreadsheet in Excel.
  2. Select the whole table.
  3. Go to 'Data' tab.
  4. Click on 'Sort' and then e.g. 'by publication date'
  5. When prompted select 'sort anything that looks like a number, as a number'.
  6. Please note that the publication date column contains exact dates (for publications that will be published in the next 4 to 6 weeks), as well as month and year (for publications that are planned for release later, and within 12 months).
