About our statistics

We maintain a year ahead programme for all FC statistical publications. This is updated on a monthly basis on our forthcoming publications page.

For information on how we comply with the UK Statistics Authority's Code of Practice for Official Statistics, see our Code of Practice page. This includes information on quality, data confidentiality and access, and pre-release access.

Visit our user engagement page for information on how we consult with users and how you can provide us with feedback. The page also includes the results from our 2011 User Engagement Survey.

Summary information on the data sources and methodology used to produce our statistics is availble in our annual Forestry Statistics publication.  Further information on our annual statistical surveys of the UK timber industry are available on the surveys page, along with information on survey reviews.  Our methodology and reviews page describes our approach to reviewing the methodology that we use to produce our statistics and provides further information on reviews of methodology and outputs.

The Expert Group on Timber and Trade Statistics advises the Forestry Commission and helps with the compilation of industry statistics.
