Reintegration support is an important tool to increase the number of people moving from a social benefit to work. The Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW) measures the results of this tool. In 2008, it introduced the new indicator 'percentage of persons receiving reintegration support and moving to regular employment’. The budget of SZW sets a target of 60% in 2011. The provisional figures for 2006 and the first half of 2007 show how many people start a job within 24 months of the start of the reintegration scheme . This second measurement follows up the first measurement, on which Statistics Netherlands published the report On the way to work with re-integration support in December 2009.
