Change in publication time for Market Sensitive Statistics

Date published: 30 March 2020

From April the monthly Labour Market Report will be published online at 7am.

This is a change from the standard release time of 9.30am and is in line with changes in ONS release and briefing practices due to COVID-19.

From June the Quarterly Employment Survey will also move to a 7am release time. (All other NISRA statistics will continue to be published at 9.30am).

The letter to the Office for Statistics Regulation (OSR) requesting the change in release time and the response from the OSR agreeing to the temporary change in release time are available on the OSR website.

Further information on the change in ONS release and briefing practices including the list of market sensitive statistics affected is available here.
