Definition
The dissemination of statistical data to all interested parties at the same time.
Context
Simultaneous release describes the policy for release of the data to the public, how the public is informed that the data are being released, and whether the policy provides for the dissemination of statistical data to all interested parties at the same time. It also describes the policy for briefing the press in advance of the release of the data.

According to the United Nations Fundamental Principles of Official Statistics, the release has to be simultaneous for all users. It is recommended to pre-announce the date of release. Simultaneous release (to all interested parties) is an element of the principle of ready and equal access to official statistics by the public that strengthens transparency in data dissemination practices.
