Table description


Statistics Netherlands collects data on the number of current accounts with an outstanding debt and the total amount concerned. In 1976 a new series was started because of a new statistical set-up and an expansion of the number of respondents. In 1992 a new series was started because of the introduction of the Act on Consumer Credit. In 2007 a new series was started because of improved data supply by respondents.

Data available from December 1970 to June 2013.
