As published in the National Statistics announcement, this release was delayed due to extra time being required for data production. This followed a switch to a new data collection system. The release is now scheduled for 19 December.

The new data collection system is delivering benefits including unified and efficient handling of the Department’s data collections. This system is already working successfully with local government financial information which transferred earlier this year.
