Data are generally published monthly with a two-month lag, but it's not uncommon for the source to skip a dissemination period, i.e., there will be a two-month gap between successive reports, and two periods will be appended.

Each month's data are published in provisional and final forms; i.e., revisions to past periods are possible.
