timeliness of scheduled economic reports??

  1. Even though i have been trading several years , it was only recently that i have begun paying attention to the regularly scheduled govt economic reports. I have noticed that they rarely seem to be issued on the precise time scheduled... sometimes they are late and sometimes early... QUESTION: is the announcement time merely a guidline or are they supposed to be announced at the time scheduled??? thanks in advance
