Research on Supply-Use tables for the digital economy in the Netherlands

Report on experimental research on the compilation of Digital Supply and Use Tables (DSUT). Includes a description of the data sources and methodology, and provisional results for 2018.
The effects of digitalization on the economy are largely hidden in the Supply and Use tables of the national accounts framework. In order to improve the visibility of digital products and digital industries, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has developed guidelines and templates for Supply and Use tables for the digital economy (DSUT). In this report, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) completes the templates designed by the OECD to the fullest extent possible for the Dutch economy for the year 2018, and discusses the main findings. This research is experimental, and all results may be subject to change when new data sources or methods are available. Funding for this research project has been made available by Eurostat
