Table description


This table shows relevant economic data for trade and industry sectors, e.g. the number of persons employed, costs and revenues, turnover and other financial results. The figures can be divided by a number of sectors/ branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008).

Data available from: 2009.

Status of the figures:
All data in the table are definite.

Changes as of April 11, 2022:
Figures of 2020 have been added.

Many enterprises received wage subsidies in 2020 as a means to support enterprises during the COVID-19 pandemic. In production statistics, wage subsidies are deducted from the total wages paid to employees. Some enterprises may have to pay back (part of) the wage subsidies received. This means that enterprises have higher labour costs than reported in this table.

When will new figures be published?
Results are made available circa 15 months after the year under review. In March/April 2023, new figures will be published for 2021.
