Table description


This table provides information about the land use of the area of the Netherlands and the changes in land use.

Data available from: 1996.

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 7 September 2018:
Addition of 2015 figures.

Metropolitan agglomerations and urban regions have been removed from the table. Figures published earlier on the said regions which were in this table have now been published on Statistics Netherlands’ website (cbs.nl) as customised output, see section/paragraph 3. As of reporting year 2016, Statistics Netherlands no longer publishes data on metropolitan agglomerations and urban regions. Various social developments have rendered the philosophy and methodology underlying the delineation outdated. It furthermore appears that other agencies are using a different classification of metropolitan agglomerations and urban regions depending on the area of application. This means there is no longer a consensus on which standard applies.
The metropolitan agglomerations and urban regions will not be published anymore from 2015 onwards as a default regional figure. On request they can be provided.

When will new figures be published?
The land use 2017 figures will be published December 2021 at the latest.
