I wrote to you on 21 June to request an alternative release time for our statistical bulletin on the first release of 2021 Census data for Wales. I also sought provisional approval for an alternative release time for our statistical bulletins accompanying the 2021 Census topic summaries from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). I noted that I would confirm our plans with you in due course.
I can now confirm that we no longer require an alternative release time for our statistical bulletins on the 2021 Census topic summaries. We will co-produce our statistical bulletins with the ONS and will therefore be publishing on the same day and at the same time as the ONS, at 9:30am in line with the Code of Practice for Statistics. This will help ensure timely access and added public value (in both Welsh and English) for users looking for statistics about Wales.
