Table description


The table contains data on indices of collective labour agreements (cao in Dutch) wages per month and per hour including and excluding special payments, indices of contractual wage costs (per month and per hour) and indices of contractual working hours. In addition, tabulated data are shown on the evolution, calculated from these indices and the percentage of completed collective labour agreements.

The table data can be broken down into:
- Cao sector;
- Economic activity (SIC'93);
- Version of the results;
- Months, years and quarters.

Data available from: January 2000.

Description topics

Index figures
An index is the ratio between two values, with the base year equals 100. The use of indices makes it simpler and easier to monitor and compare the evolution of certain quantities (wages, prices) over time.
Monthly cao wages excl. special payments
These are the cao wages excluding special payments.
Cao wages include:
- gross wage for normal working hours of full-time employees.
- all required mandatory (compulsory), regularly paid allowances.
Special payments include:
all binding (compulsory) prescribed special (non-monthly) payments belonging to the gross income, such as holiday allowance, Christmas bonus, one-time payments and from 2006 onwards the compensation for public health costs and the employers' contribution for the life course savings scheme.
Conditional bonuses, e.g. bonuses based on the employee's age, bonuses for shift work and individual wage increases are not included in cao wages and special payments.
Hourly cao wages incl. special payments
These are the cao wages including special payments and the development of yearly working hours.
Cao wages include:
- gross wage for normal working hours of full-time employees.
- all required mandatory (compulsory), regularly paid allowances.
Special payments include:
all binding (compulsory) prescribed special (non-monthly) payments belonging to the gross income, such as holiday allowance, Christmas bonus, one-time payments and from 2006 onwards the compensation for public health costs and the employers' contribution for the life course savings scheme.
Conditional bonuses, e.g. bonuses based on the employee's age, bonuses for shift work and individual wage increases are not included in cao wages and special payments.
Year-on-year change
These percentage changes are always related to the current figures and are compared to same period one year earlier. This also holds for the year-on-year change of the first published figures.
Hourly cao wages incl. special payments
