The 2017 Seafarer Statistics are scheduled for publication in May 2018. This is to allow sufficient time following user engagement to review the existing set of statistics and consider ways in which they may be improved. A summary of user feedback received will be included alongside this release.

As part of the review of the current statistics, the Department is currently assessing the quality of data collected on registration of vessel and seafarer nationality with a view to deriving new official statistics. Should the data be considered to be sufficiently robust, then the information requested will be included with the next publication.
