Investment climate; capital international comparison 1990-2011


This table shows the international developments in the capital stock and the investments. Beside the picture of the total economy, a category has been made for ICT (information and communication technology). The table is related both to the physical capital stock and its renewal or extension by means of (foreign) capital investments, and to the money that is necessary to finance the investments, in particular the venture capital. The scope of the capital and the investments in a country are mainly defined by the propensity of entrepreneurs to invest. Investment behaviour is partly defined by the investment climate.

Note:
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.

Data available from 1990 up to 2012.

Status of the figures:
The external source of these data frequently supplies adjusted figures on preceding periods. For example, it often happens that countries still provide figures on older years. The reverse, older figures being withdrawn, also happens now and then. These adjusted data are not mentioned as such in the table.

Changes as of 22 December 2017:
No, table is stopped.

When will new figures be published?
Not.
