This report with accompanying tables are an actualisation with the most recent figures of the research in 2018, commissioned by The Hague Security Delta (HSD). The tables contain the most detailed data on employed persons in security related occupations, students enrolled in security related programmes and their labour market prospects. The actualisation concerns an update for the years 2017 and 2018.
In this study security is defined rather broadly. It comprises the traditional forms of security expressed in occupations like armed forces, police officers and security guards. But it includes also more general security occupations like lawyers and judges and the corresponding educational programmes; occupations and programmes which contribute to ‘security’ at a more institutional level. The occupations in which the employed persons work are classified by the International Standard Classification of Occupations 2008 (ISCO 2008). The security programmes in vocational and tertiary education are selected at the most detailed level, namely at the level of the individual programmes. For vocational education this is the list of CREBO-codes and for tertiary education this is the list of CROHO-codes. The Police Academy and the Royal Military Academy are not part of the institutional educational system as subsidized by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science. The educational background of the employed persons is classified according to the International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED-F 2013). The security related occupations and programmes selected from this classifications are part of these tables.
