Indices on the main commodity groups are published already 20-22 days after the end of the month. This is rather quick for statistics based on a survey such as this. One month later the indices on the most detailed industry level are published. The punctuality is very high with delays happening very rarely.
Timeliness and time lag - final results
The first published figures for a given month are published 20-22 days after the end of the reference period and only include figures on the three main commodity groups (not industries). On industry level, the first publication is one month later. At the same time, the first published figures on commodity groups are revised. Hence, these figures are published 50-52 days after the end of the reference period.
One month later, the final revision of the figures is made for both the commodity groups and the figures on industry level (which are thus only revised once). Hence, the final figures are published 70-72 days after the end of the reference month.
The punctuality is very high with delays happening very rarely.
