Table description


This table shows relevant data for the economic sector 'wholesale trade',
e.g. the number of persons employed, costs and revenues, turnover and
other financial results. The figures can be divided by a number of
branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial
Classification of all Economic Activities 1993 (SIC'93).

The survey questionnaire was changed slightly in 2007. Up to and including
2006, wage subsidies were counted as (other) business returns. From 2007
onwards these subsidies are deducted from business costs. Because of these
changes, results for 2007 are not fully comparable with results for 2006.
The effect of these changes on business returns and business costs are
small for most of the branches.

Data available from 2006 - 2008.

Status of the figures: All data are definite.

Changes as of 1 September 2011:
This table has been stopped. Two important points in the processing of
the data on 2009 have changed :
- a new version of the Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic
Activities has been implemented (SIC 2008);
- the statistical unit has been changed.
Due to these changes, the figures are no longer comparable to those of the
previous years. Therefore new table has been started from 2009 onwards
(see also heading 3).

Changes as of 12 November 2010:
Closer research has shown that two SIC-groups within wholesale trade for
reporting year 2008 are unsufficiently reliable.
These are:
5186 Wholesale of electric motors, electronic instruments, switchboxes and
installation material.
5187 Wholesale of other machinery for industry and trade.

Changes as of 1 July 2010:
Figures of 2008 have been added. Figures of SIC'93-group 5132a of 2008 are
not comparable with those of 2007. This is because of changes in structure
of companies, changes in SIC'93-classification and so on.

Figures of 2007 of SIC'93-groups 5132a, 5142, 5153, 5181a and 5184a have
been adjusted because of new data sent by companies.
