How does Statistics Netherlands measure internationalisation?

The Statistics Netherlands research programme approaches internationalisation via business activities (micro data):

  • The first approach is to identify enterprises through the international trade statistics and the business register (ABR) and describe the internationalisation of the private sector in terms of ownership, size class, standard industrial classification, trade and investments.
  • The second approach is describing enterprises employer-employee files based on linking the social and business statistics, to record the consequences of economic globalisation for employment, wages, job dynamics etc.
