Census and Statistics Department announces schedule for issuing regular releases of statistical data in 2017
     The Census and Statistics Department (C&SD) announced today (September 15) the schedule for issuing regular releases of statistical data in 2017 at Annex (PDF format). The schedule, which covers 115 items, has been uploaded on the C&SD's website (www.censtatd.gov.hk/press_release/index.jsp) to facilitate access by the public.

     The information sheet entitled "Census and Statistics Department – 2017 Regular Statistics Releases Schedule" has also been released via the C&SD's website. Presenting the date schedule by data category, this information sheet serves as a handy reference on the issue dates of the regular press releases of individual subject areas in 2017.

     "We have been making great effort to provide timely and quality statistics. At present, we are able to release most monthly statistics within one month and all quarterly statistics within three months after the reference period," a spokesman for the C&SD said.

     The press releases listed on the schedule will be issued via the Information Services Department at 4.30pm on the release day. They will also be posted on the C&SD's website (www.censtatd.gov.hk/press_release/index.jsp) shortly afterwards.

     "We have all along adhered to the pre-announced schedule for issuing these regular press releases. Only under exceptional circumstances such as extremely adverse weather conditions leading to temporary closure of business would the releases be postponed. In such events, an announcement will be made via the Information Services Department regarding the special circumstances and the revised date for issuing the press release concerned," the spokesman added.

     In addition to these regular press releases, other press releases on statistical data (e.g. press releases announcing results of ad hoc surveys) are also issued by the C&SD from time to time.

     All press releases issued by the department in recent years are posted on its website for reference by the general public.

     Enquiries on the schedule can be directed to the C&SD at telephone number 2582 4958.
