Table description


The purpose of this table is to provide current information on the opinions of Dutch producers about performance, expectations and assessment concerning their enterprises. The survey covers enterprises in commercial services, retail trade and manufacturing industry. The Business sentiment survey makes it possible to indicate turning points
in sentiment at an early stage. In this way a change in the trend of economic activity of Dutch companies is available at a early stage. The questions put to the companies relate to production,sales, prices, orders, stocks, investment, competitiveness,economic climate, workforce and the factors limiting production. In answering the questions relating to developments in the past three months and expectations for the next tree months, the enterpreneurs are asked for a comparison with the preceding period of three months.

- "Our total turnover will increase over the next three months,
remain unchanged or decrease? "

The weighted response rate of producers with an expected increase in
turnover minus the weighted response rate of producers with an expected decrease in turnover. This balance shows the expected development of turnover in the next three months.
Selling prices / rates next three months
Selling prices / rates next three months
weighted response rates to the question:
- "Our selling prices / rates over the next three months will
