I see that on the FDA adverse events reporting (FAERS) public dashboard the data is already as of June 30, 2018 whereas on the API its still as of March 31, 2018.

https://api.fda.gov/drug/event.json?search=receivedate:20180101+TO+20180813&count=receivedate

or

https://api.fda.gov/drug/event.json?search=receiptdate:20180101+TO+20180813&count=receiptdate

{ "time": "20180329", "count": 288 }, { "time": "20180330", "count": 237 }, { "time": "20180331", "count": 20 } ] }

    I'm afraid this is something that we can't answer unless there's an official announcement about it (which it might be, or it might be not). – Andrew T. Aug 13 at 14:30
  • @AndrewT. I see, I am new to the openFDA API. So, there is a lag between when the quarterly files are posted to FAERS/public dashboard and when the openFDA is updated. Do you know what is the typical lag? couple of weeks? Thanks. – Rajdip Ghosh Aug 13 at 14:59
  • Based on the discussion on OpenFDA GitHub, it should be "every other week on Wednesday night". However, looks like it's not the case here. Probably it's better to report this on there instead. – Andrew T. Aug 13 at 15:04

Please check back next week for the updates.

  • He is, in the title. I agree that repeating the question in the text would've been nice. – Jan Doggen Aug 17 at 11:04
