FAQ

Why aren't the Latest Wholesale Reports for the current month or current year?

The collection of monthly data doesn't begin until the month ends.  While companies are requested to provide data within the first 10 business days, it usually takes at least 4 weeks to obtain an acceptable response level.  Processing and analyzing overlap this collection period and it takes an additional 5 business days to finalize the report. Preliminary MWTS estimates are typically published approximately 45 days after the reference month. Final estimates are published approximately 75 days after the reference month. The collection of AWTS data doesn't begin until 3 or 4 weeks after the reference year ends.  While companies are requested to provide data within 30 business days, it usually takes at least 8 months to obtain an acceptable response level.  Processing and analyzing overlaps this collection period to some extent, but most occurs after data collection ends. The final estimates are typically released 13-16 months after the reference year has ended. The most current reports are on the main page.
