Expats: who are they? (Dutch only)

Although the term expat is well-known, no universal definition of this group of foreign employees is available. Statistics Netherlands has published a research paper, exploring the possibility to define the number of expats in the Netherlands based on its integrated datasets.

The study concludes that not all features of expats are available in Statistics Netherlands data. A rough definition of expats can be drawn up: foreign-born employees with a high wage who do not have the Dutch nationality.
