The NSO publishes around 230 News Releases a year, spread over nine main themes. All releases are published and disseminated at 1100 hrs as scheduled in the Advance Release Calendar. The calendar is published on the NSO website and includes a three-month advance notice (the current month and the forthcoming two months).
The responsible unit for the dissemination of all News Releases is the Dissemination unit and all general enquiries should be directed to this unit (contact details on the front page footer of all releases). News releases are scheduled in such a way so as to have only one release per working day. In exceptional cases, the NSO Director General may however authorise more than one release on one particular day.
