Table description


Statistics Netherlands collects data on consumer credit granted to individuals and the resulting debt.
The following monthly amounts are given for the various types of credit institutions and types of credit:
- amount of credit granted;
- amount of interest;
- amount of repayments;
- amount of outstanding balance;
- amount of limits granted.
Also stated is the number of:
- outstanding contracts;
- limits granted;
- new loans supplied;
- new limits granted.

Data available from January 1998 to December 2013.

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are provisional when published. As this table has been discontinued, they will not become definite.
In July data of the previous year are made definite based on the results of a yearly survey. The data for January-May of the current year are also adjusted, but remains provisional. Other adjustments may be made when new or additional information from respondents becomes available.

Changes as of 24 February 2014:
Data for December 2013 have been added and the table has been discontinued.

As a result of a number of ambiguities, on 23 February 2012 the figures on Credit card credit were removed as a matter of precaution. The figures will be replaced as soon as possible.

When will new figures be published?
As a result of budget restrictions affecting Statistics Netherlands, from 2014 onwards a number of statistics will be either discontinued, published less frequently or published in less detail. Following consultation of our main users, one of the statistics to be discontinued is the series on Consumer Credit. This table is therefore the last in the series. For more information about reduction in the statistical work programme, see Statistics Netherlands Strategic multi-annual programme 2014-2018.

Description topics
