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 November 2022
Data on the following themes were added for the year 2021:

Leisure and culture
- Museums
- Performing arts (excl. festivals)
- Pop music venue

Traffic and transport
- Main road entrances

Health and well-being
- Hospitals (incl. outpatient clinics)
- Hospitals (excl. outpatient clinics)

Data on the following themes were added for the year 2019:
- Employment: number of jobs

Data on the following themes were added for the year 2018:
- Employment: number of jobs

Data on the following themes were added for the year 2017:
Public green
- public green total
- park
- recreational terrain
- forest
- open natural terrain total
- open dry natural terrain
- open wet natural terrain

Semi-public green
- semi-public green total
- sports field
- allotment garden
- recreational area
- cemetery

Other types of green
- recreational inland waters

From reporting year 2017, the method for calculating the proximity of green has changed: among other things, only greenery with a minimum surface area of 1 hectare is now included. On average, this method change makes virtually no difference for the whole of the Netherlands: compared to 2015, the distance to greenery has increased by 0.1 km on average. But at a local level (particularly on the Wadden Islands) the differences can sometimes amount to several tens of kilometers.


When will new figures be released?
New figures for this table are expected in the spring of 2023.
