Advance Data Release Calendar - 2021

Department of Census and Statistics (DCS) releases selected statistical information including certain census and survey reports on pre announced dates as shown in the following Advance Data Release Calendar (ADRC). Any revisions to these dates will be informed to the users by publishing revised dates in the ADRC at least two weeks before the scheduled dates given in the calendar. The objective of the ADRC is to let data uses know when the data will be released by the DCS and to make all data accessible to all parties at the same time.

Dates are decided for one year at a time.
