This table comprises yearly figures on the main aspects of employment, wages and working hours in the Netherlands. The information in this table is classified according to Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities (SIC 2008) and can be broken down into:
- employee characteristics (age and sex)
- job characteristics (type of employment contract and working hours)
- company characteristics (size of the firm and collective wage agreements)
Data available from: 2009.
Status of the figures:
Figures for the years 2009 to 2020 are definite. Figures for 2021 are provisional.
Changes as of 22 April 2022:
- Provisional figures for 2021 are added.
- The figures for 2021 are excluding the selections: ‘Type of employment contract: full-time’, ‘Type of employment contract: part-time’ for the branche ‘P Education’.
When will new figures be published?
The final figures for 2021 will be published in October 2022.
- A job is an explicit or implicit employment contract between a person and an economic unit, specifying that labour will be carried out in return for remuneration (financial or otherwise). An employed person may have more than one job at a time. In that case the person has a main job and a secondary job. Each job counts separately. For the calculation of the average number of jobs in a certain period the starting date and end date of a job is taking into account. The weekly working hours are left out of account. Two successive jobs both with a 6-month working period will always count as one job in the average number of jobs, regardless of whether these jobs are full-time or part-time.
- Labour volume
- The volume of labour input in the production process, in terms of hours worked or full-time equivalents. Part-time jobs are counted proportionally (excluding overtime, after deduction of the reduction in working hours).
Calculation of the average labour volume for a certain period is based on the starting date and end date of a job and the weekly working hours. Two successive jobs both with a 6-month working period will count as 1 working year in the yearly average labour volume if both jobs are full-time. If they are part-time jobs they will count for less than a year.
- Wage per job
- Hourly wage
- The hourly wage are calculated by the sum of gross wage of all the jobs of employees of the related population divide by the sum of the corresponding working hours. These wages and hours are summed by subpopulation and period.
The agreed gross wage is excluding bonuses/allowances and overtime pay, but including the value according to tax of non-monetary remuneration liable to tax.
The working hours are the hours paid for a job excluding overtime hours, holiday leave and public holidays. Leave in compensation for shorter working hours (ADV) is not recognized as working hours, so this is not included in the calculation.
Bonuses and allowances are occasional payments that are part of the gross wages such as holiday allowance, profit sharing and performance bonuses.
- Monthly wages
- The monthly wage is the agreed gross salary, excluding bonuses/allowances, but including the value according to tax of non-monetary remuneration liable to tax and paid overtime. The private tax benefits of a company car are not included. There is a difference between monthly wage including paid overtime and excluding paid overtime.
The average monthly wage in a year is determined by dividing the yearly wage sum by 12 times the average number of jobs in that year.
- Monthly wage including overtime
- The monthly wage including paid overtime.
- Monthly wage excluding overtime
- The monthly wage excluding paid overtime.
- Yearly wage
- Agreed gross salary including the value according to tax of non-monetary remuneration liable to tax and paid overtime. The private tax benefits of a company car are not included. The average yearly wage is determined by dividing the yearly wage sum by the average number of jobs in a year.
- Yearly wage including bonuses
- The yearly wage including bonuses and allowances, such as holiday allowance, profit sharing, performance bonuses etc.
- Yearly wage excluding special payments
- The yearly wage excluding bonuses and allowances, such as holiday allowance, profit sharing, performance bonuses etc.
- Bonuses and allowances
- Occasional payments that are part of the gross wages such as holiday allowance, profit sharing, performance bonuses etc.
These do not include contributions to wage savings schemes, compensation for dismissal, compensation for medical expenses and wages paid for overtime.
- Additional tax liability for company car
- Fixed value of private use of a company car minus extra payment by the employee for this use.
- Working hours
