Table description


This table provides an international comparison of the performance of the economy. This is done by means of a number of broadly accepted economic indicators as gross domestic product and employed labour force. These indicators are complemented by a number of indicators on the quality of life and ecological sustainability.

Note: Comparable definitions are used to facilitate international comparisons of the figures. The definitions used here sometimes differ from definitions used by Statistics Netherlands. The figures in this table can differ from Dutch figures presented elsewhere on the website of Statistics Netherlands.

Data available for: 1960, 1970, 1980 and from 1990 up to 2012.

Status of the figures:
The external sources of these data frequently supply adjusted figures on preceding periods. These adjusted data are not mentioned as such in the table.

Changes as of 1 March 2018:

Income quintile share ratio
The income quintile share ratio is the sum of the incomes of the 20 percent highest incomes in the population, divided by the sum of the incomes of the 20 percent lowest incomes in the population. To determine someone's income, first the total disposable income of a household is determined. Then this income is corrected for the household composition (equivalised). Then all persons within the household are attributed the same equivalised income.
