Description topics

Expenditure approach to GDP
This part of the table introduces the expenditure approach of Gross
Domestic Product (GDP).
The connection between GDP and expenditure components comes in to focus in
this part. The menu shows the supply and disposition of goods and services
scheme which contains the expenditure components of GDP.
More details data on the expenditure components could be found in de
last part: Additional details.
Disposable for final expenditure
The total amount of domestic generated goods and services (GDP) and the
imported goods and services are adding up to the disposable for final
expenditure. This variable is by definition equal to the total final
expenditure, which is the sum of the National final expenditure and the
exports of goods and services.
Gross domestic product
GDP is the total amount of domestic generated goods and services
(expenditure approach). It is also the sum of value added in all branches
of economic activities (production approach) and the total generated
income in the Netherlands (income approach).
The volume changes of gross domestic products is the measure for
economic growth.
GDP, working days adjusted
Growth of the gross domestic products, adjusted for working days effects. The number of working days in corresponding quarters of successive years may differ due to a leap day, due to an unequal number of holidays that take place in a weekend (e.g. New Year’s Day) or because of a holiday shift from one quarter to another (e.g. Easter Monday). The effect of an additional working day on the economic growth adds up to 0.2 to 0.3 percentage points.
Imports of goods and services
On the macro level imports of goods is valued free on board (fob)at the
border of the exporting country. The transition from valuation of imported
goods at cif to fob consists of:
- a cif/fob adjustment of the transport costs abroad of Dutch freighters.
Total imports (goods) and exports (services) are reduced by the same
amount.
- a cif/fob reclassification of the transport costs abroad of foreign
freighters, from imports of goods to imports of services.
It leaves total imports and total exports unchanged.
Imports of goods are goods intended for residents, which are imported from
abroad into the Dutch economic territory.
Included in imports of goods are raw materials, semimanufactured products,
fuels and final products. Also included are imported goods, which are
re-exported without undergoing any processing.
Imports of services include among other things the expenditures
abroad by Dutch tourists, inhabitants of the border area and
diplomats.

Final expenditure
The sum of the National final expenditure and the exports of goods and
services. This variable is by definition equal to the disposable final
expenditure (GDP and imports).
National final expenditure
Gross national final expenditure is the sum of the final consumption
expenditure, the gross fixed capital formation and the changes in
inventories.
Consumption expenditure
Final consumption expenditure consists of expenditure incurred by resident
institutional units on goods and services that are used for the direct
satisfaction of individual needs or wants or the collective needs of
members of the community. Final consumption expenditure may take place on
the domestic territory or abroad.
Final consumption expenditure exists only for households, NPI
households and general government.

households and general government.
Consumption by households
Final consumption expenditure by households and by Non-Profit Institutions
Final consumption expenditure by households includes the following
borderline cases:
- income in kind like accommodation, food, clothing etc.
- services of dwellings, which are occupied by the owners themselves and
without any actual rent payments. These services are valued by applying
the rents of similar dwellings.
- goods and services produced for own use, as in agriculture.
The value of these products is calculated by applying the market prices
for similar products.
- durable consumption goods such as private cars, household appliances,
furniture and clothing. However, the purchases of dwellings by households
are not seen as final consumption, but as fixed capital formation by
households.
The detailed data on consumption of households concern private domestic
consumption expenditure. This includes final consumption in the
Netherlands by residents and non-residents. Final consumption by
households can be calculated by deducting from private domestic
consumption expenditure the final consumption by non-residents in the
Netherlands (registered as exports) and adding final consumption by
households in the rest of the world (registered as imports).
Final consumption expenditure by NPI households
Final consumption expenditure by NPI households consists of all the
non-market output of this sector excluding the own account capital
formation.
Consumption by general government
Final consumption expenditure by general government results from the
specific recording of government output. Only a small part of government
output is actually sold (market output). The larger part of government
output is paid out of public funds and provided free of charge to all
sectors (non-market output). Because the allocation of government output
to different users will encounter large problems, the government is by
convention considered to be the consumer of its own output. Because of the
absence of market prices output and final consumption expenditure by
general government is calculated from the production costs:

Gross fixed capital formation
Fixed assets are produced tangible or intangible assets that are used in
the production process for more than one year.
Gross fixed capital formation consists of producers' acquisitions less
disposals of fixed assets:
- acquisitions, less disposals, of tangible fixed assets:
- acquisitions, less disposals, of intangible fixed assets:
- major improvements to land (reclamation, land consolidation and land
preparing for building).
Fixed capital formation also includes:
- work in progress of construction such as unfinished dwellings,
non-residential buildings and civil engineering works are recorded as
fixed capital formation of the client.
- military structures and equipment, similar to those used by civilian
producers, such as airfields and hospitals.
- improvements to existing fixed assets that go well beyond the
requirements of ordinary maintenance and repairs.
- transfer costs of fixed assets, such as conveyance fees and costs made
by real estate agents, architects and notaries.
On the level of the total economy and the sectors, an adjustment is made
for the transactions in used fixed assets, which are seen as investments
of the buyer and disinvestment of the seller. This adjustment is not made
for the industries.

Changes in inventories
Changes in inventories including acquisitions less disposals of valuables
Inventories consist of all raw materials, semi-manufactured goods, work in
progress and final products, that producers havein stock at a certain
moment.
Changes in work in progress are in general considered to be changes in
inventories. However, work in progress in construction is seen as fixed
capital formation of the client and not as changes in inventories of the
construction industry. This concerns unfinished buildings and civil
engineering works.
Increases in inventories occur when goods are produced (or purchased) but
not yet sold (or used) in the year under review.
Decreases in inventories occur when goods are withdrawn from existing
inventories in order to be sold or used in the production process.
The assessment of the changes in inventories is done in such way that
gains or losses on inventories caused by price changes are avoided. With
this objective the initial and final stock of each good is valued at the
same price, namely raw materials at the average purchase price in the
period, final products at average sales price and work in progress at the
average cost price.
This valuation method prevents output and subsequently value added from
being influenced by changes in prices of stocks during the period under
review.
Acquisitions less disposals of valuables This transaction consists of the
acquisitions less disposals of precious stones, non-monetary gold,
antiques, art objects and jewellery, that are acquired and held primarily
as stores of value.
In the national accounts this transaction is mostly combined with
changes in inventories.
Exports of goods and services
Exports of goods are goods, which have been exported by residents from the
Dutch economic territory to the rest of the world.
The exports of services include the services of Dutch transport
enterprises abroad, harbour services, ships repair services and
engineering of works by Dutch contractors abroad.
Also included in the exports of services are expenditures by foreign
tourists, inhabitants of the border area and diplomats in the Netherlands.
