In this table international comparisions are made of the current and the potential supply of labour and of the labour costs. The composition of the current supply of labour is represented by a breakdown of levels of education of working persons (primary, secondary and tertiary education). The level of education of the potential supply of labour is indicated by the performance of students and the proportion of unemployed persons. The level of education is an indicator for human capital allocated to production. Labour costs are expressed in costs per hour and the unit labour costs.
Comparable definitions are used to compare the figures presented internationally. The definitions sometimes differ from definitions used by Statistics Netherlands. The figures in this table could differ from Dutch figures presented elsewhere on the website of Statistics Netherlands.
