Description topics

Total population
Age groups
0 to 20 years
20 to 65 years
65 years and older
% 0 to 20 years
% 20 to 65 years
% 65 years and older
Demographic burden
Ratio between number of people aged over 65 and younger than 20,
and the number of 20 to 65 year-olds. This ratio is an indicator of the
pressure of the non-active population on the labour force.
Live births
Total fertility rate
The total fertility rate gives an indication of how many children women
have on average. In order to calculate this figure, age-specific fertility
rates observed in a given calendar year are used which apply to
every childbearing age (ages between 15 and 50).
Deaths
Life expectancy at birth
The number of years men or women can expect to live at the moment they
are born.
Life expectancy men
Life expectancy women
External migration
Immigration
Arrival in the Netherlands from another country.
Emigration (incl. net adm. corrections)
Departure from the Netherlands to another country (including net
administrative corrections).
Net migration (incl. net adm. corr.)
Immigration minus emigration (including net administrative corrections).
