Enterprises; sizeclass and legal form, 2006-2010


This table includes information on the number of enterprises and
institutions broken down by the National Classification of Economic
Activity 2008 (NCEA 2008, based on NACE Rev 2.0). Besides the breakdown
by NCEA, the number of enterprises is broken down by size class or legal
form. The number of enterprises is rounded by a multiple of 5. The data
refer to the situation on 1 January of the year concerned.

Data available from: 2006

Status of the figures:
All data recorded in this publication are definite.

Last changes:
Data broken down by NCEA 1993 have been converted to data broken down by
NCEA 2008.

When will new figures be published?
Changes as of 20 April 2012:
This table has been stopped.
Two points in the processing of the data have changed:
- the statistical unit has been changed.
- the check on economic activity of an enterprise has been broadened. As a consequence of this, more entrepeneurs have entered the population of Dutch enterprises.
Due to these changes, the figures are no longer comparable to those of the previous years. Therefore a new table has been started from 2007 onwards.
