Table description


This table shows relevant data for the economic sector 'research and
development' (SIC'93 code 73), e.g. the number of persons employed, costs
and revenues, turnover and other financial results.

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).
