Description topics

Electronic purchase value
The value of a company's purchase transactions completed electronically
as a percentage of total purchase value.
Per sector of industry (SIC 2008)
Sectors and branches of industry are groups of companies classified by
their main activity. Statistics Netherlands uses its Standard Industrial
Classification (SIC 2008) for this classification. Among other things,
Statistics Netherlands uses SIC 2008 to classify units by their main
activity.
The classification by main activity means that certain categories, for
example production and distribution of energy and water, may include
companies with secondary activities alongside their main activity.
The SIC 2008 has six levels, of which the two highest levels (sections
and subsections) are denoted by letters, and the lower levels,
(divisions, groups, classes and sub-classes) are denoted by digits.
Up to and including the level of classes (4 digits), the SIC is almost
identical to the NACE rev.2. (Nomenclature statistique des activités
économiques dans la Communauté Européenne), which is used in all member
countries of the European Union.
