Description topics

General government (consolidated)
The sector general government primarily consists of all entities (covered by public law) that carry out activities regarding the redistribution of income and wealth. In the Netherlands this concerns ministries, municipalities, provinces, water boards and the like. In the second place general government consists of entities that are controlled and mainly financed by the aforementioned entities, and do not produce for the market. Non-market output means that the sale proceeds are structural less than 50 per cent of the production costs. In this way, for instance, Prorail and the Open University are counted to the general government.
Government institutions that are active abroad, like embassies, belong to the sector general government as well. On the other hand foreign embassies and international institutions, like Europol and the International Court of Justice, do not belong to the Dutch government.
Public enterprises (like the Dutch Railways, Amsterdam Airport (Schiphol), the Dutch Municipal Bank (BNG) and quasi-corporations are no part of the sector general government. The Dutch Central Bank (DNB) also does not belong to the sector general government.
The general government sector is split up into three subsectors: central government, local government and social security funds.
Consolidated means that the transactions between government-units are eliminated.
Total expenditure
Total expenditure of the Government. These expenditures include the remuneration of employees, intermediate consumption, fixed capital formation, legal social insurance, social benefits, subsidies, benefits legal provision income property, other expenditure n.e.c. (taxes on production and not related to products, benefits directly by employers, other current transfers, capital transfers, balance buying and selling of non-produced non-financial assets).
Consumption of fixed capital is not included in the expenditure.
The total expenditure of the Government per quarter as a percentage of GDP is a moving annual total. It is calculated as the total expenditure of the Government for the quarterly report plus the previous three quarters, divided by the GDP in the quarterly report plus the previous three quarters. The figure for the fourth quarter is equal to the annual figure.
Households including NPISH
Households including non-profit institutions serving households (NPISH) include:
- Sector households, that consists of all natural persons who are resident for more than one year in the Netherlands, irrespective of their nationality. On the other hand Dutch citizens who stay abroad for longer than one year do not belong to the Dutch sector households.
The sector households does not only cover independently living persons, but also persons in nursing homes, old people’s homes, prisons, boarding schools, etc. If persons are entrepreneurs, their business also belongs to the sector households. This is the case for self-employed persons (one-man business). Large autonomous unincorporated enterprises (quasi-corporations) are included in the sector non-financial or financial corporations.
- Sector non-profit institutions (NPI) serving households, that consists of foundations and clubs whose resources are principally derived from voluntary contributions from households or from property income. Examples are religious organisations, charity organisations, political parties, trade unions and cultural, sports and recreational organisations.
Final consumption expenditure
Final consumption expenditure of households including NPI households consists of expenditure incurred by resident institutional units on goods and services that are used for the direct satisfaction of individual needs or wants. Final consumption expenditure may take place on the domestic territory or abroad.
