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.
This publication is created using co-financing by the European Commission.

Status of the figures: All data are definite.

Data available from Services: April 1992
Data available from Retail Trade: May 2008
Data available from Industry: February 1989

Changes as of 30 December 2021:
Figures of December 2021 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
January 2022 figures are expected to be published on 28 January 2022.

Description topics

Production and capacity utilisation
The weighted response rates to the questions:
- "The level of production / activity in the last three months
has increased, remained unchanged or decreased? "
- "The level of production / activity in the next three months
will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? "
- "The occupation / use of our available production capacity
is currently around ...% "
- "We assess the current production capacity, given the expected
market development as (too) large, normal or (too) small? "
Production / activity past three months
Production / activity last three months
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "The level of production / activity in the last three months,
has increased, remained unchanged or decreased? "
Production/ activity has increased
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the
production / activity in the last three months has increased.
Production/activity remained unchanged
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the
production / activity in the last three months remained unchanged.
Production / activity has decreased
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the
production / activity in the last three months has decreased.
Not applicable
The weighted response rate of producers who consider
production /activity not relevant for their enterprise plus the weighted
rate of producers who were not asked.
Balance production last three months
The weighted response rate of producers with increased
production / activity minus the rate of producers with a
decreased production. This balance shows the direction in which the
production / activity in the last three months has developed.
Production / activity next three months
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "The level of production / activity in the next three
month will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? "
Production / activity will increase
Weighted response rate of producers who expect the
production / activity in the next three months will increase.
Production/activity will be unchanged
Weighted response rate of producers who expect the
production / activity in the next three months will remain unchanged.
Production / activity will decrease
Weighted response rate of producers who expect the production /
activity in the next three months will decrease.
Not applicable
The weighted response rate of producers who consider production
/ activity not relevant for their business plus the weighted response
rate of producers who were not asked.
Balance production next three months
The weighted response rate of producers who expect an increase in
production / activity minus the weighted response rate of producers
who expect a decrease in production / activity. This balance shows
the direction in which the production / activity in the next three
months is expected to develop.
Assessment of production capacity
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "We assess the current production capacity, given the expected
market development as (too) large, normal or (too) small? "
Production capacity is (too) large
Weighted response rate of producers who consider the current
production capacity is (too) large, given the expected market development.
Production capacity is normal
Weighted response rate of producers who consider the current
production capacity as normal, given the expected market development.
Production capacity is (too) small
Weighted response rate of producers who consider the current
production capacity is (too) small, given the expected market development.
Not applicable
The weighted response rate of producers who consider
production capacity not to be relevant for their enterprise plus the
weighted response rate of producers who were not asked the question.
Balance assessed capacity
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the
production capacity is (too) large minus the rate of producers
that consider this capacity is (too) small. This balance represents,
compared to the previous balances, the current assessment of shortage or surplus of available capacity.
Assessment of finished products stocks
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "We evaluate our finished products stocks / commodities, given the
expected market development, as a (too) large, normal or (too) small?

finished products / commodities, given the expected market development, as (too) large.
Stocks finished products normal
Weighted response rate of producers who consider the stocks of
finished products / commodities, given the expected market development, as normal.
Stocks finished products (too) small

the question.
Balance assessment stocks
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that the stocks of
finished products / commodities are (too) large minus the rate of
producers who cosider the stocks are (too) small.
This balance represents compared to the previous balances in relation
to the expected sales development, the current assessment of satisfaction of the producers about their stocks of finished products.
