AODstats updates

Data release

Data will typically be presented across a ten year period (where available), retrospectively analysed and updated, on the website, twice per year. This means that each 6 month period, new indicator data will be added as it becomes available and existing data will be amended where required. These releases will typically be available to the public towards the end of the second and fourth quarters.
