Table description

This table contains information about the average distances for residents of the Netherlands from their home address to the nearest facilities (e.g. school, GP or library). The table also includes information about the number of facilities located within a certain distance from the residential address. These data are calculated as an average over all persons in the area.

The data is available at different regional levels. The lowest level is the municipality.

Data available from: 2006

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes per December 2021
This is the first publication of this table.

When will new figures be released?
New figures for this table are expected in the spring of 2022.

Description topics

Health and wellbeing
General practice
Building or space in which one or more general practitioners work (together).
Distance to GP practice
The average distance of all inhabitants in an area to the nearest general practice, calculated by road.
As of the reporting year 2020, Statistics Netherlands receives the population of GP practices in a different form than before: the secondary addresses of GP practices are no longer part of the population. Due to this change in the source files, the results from reporting year 2020 are no longer comparable with those of previous years. An analysis for the reporting year 2019 into the effect of omitting the secondary addresses shows that the distance to the nearest general practitioner practice increases by 0.1 km on a national level. At neighbourhood level, the distance can be up to 7 km longer in certain regions.
Number of GP practices
The average number of GP practices within a fixed distance by road for all residents of an area.

Distance to GP post
GP post
Place where general practitioners from the region provide evening, night and weekend shifts. A number of GP posts work with alternating shifts.

The average distance of all residents in an area to the nearest GP post, calculated by road.

Up to and including 2012, the distance from a residential address to one of the GP posts in a cluster of alternating shifts was determined as the average of the distances to all GP posts within that cluster.
As of 2013, no information is available anymore about alternating shifts. The distance is then determined from the home address to the nearest GP post, regardless of any alternating shifts.
Distance to pharmacy

The average distance of all residents in an area to the nearest pharmacy, calculated by road.

Green areas
The entrances to the green areas are established at the intersections between the roads and paths of the Top10NL (topographic map, both the line file and the road section file) in the green area and the outer boundary of the green area. For green areas without paths or roads (usually the smaller green areas and public gardens), the focus of the greenery has been taken.

In 2008 and before, only the line file of the topographic map was used and green areas without paths or roads are not included. This mainly results in a trend breach in open natural terrain.

A museum is a permanent institution at the service of society and its development, open to the public, not aimed at making a profit, which acquires, preserves, scientifically researches, presents and informs about the material testimonies of man and his environment for purposes of study, education and pleasure.

From 2015 onwards, new (stricter) criteria are applied to museums. These criteria are:
- The museum has a permanent location, is open permanently and is freely accessible at least 28 weeks a year and three days a week.
- The museum is not for profit, or is an institution or foundation for public benefit (ANBI).
- The museum has its own collection and conducts research into the collection in order to disseminate knowledge about it.
- The museum has a website or can be accessed via referral on a larger platform.

Please take this trend break into account when interpreting the data, especially when comparing various years before and after 2015.

The locations of the museums in 2006 are not available at Statistics Netherlands. That’s why the museums from 2005 have been as the best approximation for the distances to museums in 2006.

As of the reporting year 2013, all museums in a partnership have been included (provided they meet the above criteria). In the years prior to 2013, only one museum per partnership was included in the population. As a result, the populations from 2013 onwards have increased by a few dozen more museums.
