Every month the Treasury and Office for National Statistics produce a joint statistical bulletin on the latest public finances data. On the same day the OBR will provide a brief analysis of the data, explaining how it should be interpreted in light of our most recent public finances forecast for the current year.
We will be monitoring the 2021-22 monthly outturn data against monthly profiles consistent with our October 2021 forecast.

In our working paper published in September 2018, we set out our approach to in-year fiscal forecasting and monitoring of the public finances, and discuss how we assess our forecasts against the published data.
