Cliffhangers in Statistical reports…

Noting that the ONS Family spending in the UK reports run on an April to March (preceding finanical year basis), the 2018-19 report having been published on March 19th, 2020, the next edition will make interesting reading, ending presumbaly with a the start of a step change in spending in the last couple of weeks of March, 2020.

And who knows what the report and associated spreadsheets will look like in March 2021 reporting on the 19/20 financial year…

PS there are some loosely related ONS weekly figures, such as EARN01: Average weekly earnings, and monthly figures, such as the DWP Jobseeker’s Allowance figures, which could be interesting to keep track of in the meantime.

PPS The ONS are also getting up to speed with some additional weekly stats, eg Coronavirus and the social impacts on Great Britain (New indicators from the ONS Opinions and Lifestyle Survey).
