Data Processing Times

We process huge volumes of invaluable data which is submitted by you, our contributors. Whilst we try to ensure that we process submissions as soon as possible, we also apply levels of prioritization against different data to ensure that we get the highest profile data types for the most viewed pages to the site as quickly as possible to ensure the best possible user experience.

Page updated 10 October 2014 using data from 9 October 2014.

    In order to determine when the daily site update has launched, and to allow tracking when the site has been forced to revert to a previous day's data, we are now displaying the build date (20 October 2014) of the current data on the site. Please note, this is not an indication that data has been processed through this date; rather, this is the last time any data on the site has been changed. Please see the above paragraphs for a more accurate indication of whether any particular data item has been processed.

    Note that pages in the new design are updated up to 36 hours faster than the old reference view.
