FTC releases annual National Do Not Call Registry Data Book

The Federal Trade Commission has issued the National Do Not Call Registry Data Book for Fiscal Year 2019. The Data Book contains information about the DNC Registry from October 1, 2018, to September 30, 2019. It provides information on robocall complaints, the types of calls consumers reported to the FTC, and a complete state-by-state analysis.

The FTC data show that the number of active registrations on the DNC Registry increased over the past year. Although the total number of consumer complaints decreased slightly, the FTC attributed the decline to the fact that it could not accept complaints during government shutdown. Of the complaints received, 71 percent were about robocalls.
