Description topics

Terms of trade
The terms of trade in goods reflect the ratio of export prices to import prices.

If prices of exports rise more quickly than prices of imports, the terms of trade improve. If import prices rise more quickly than export prices, the terms of trade deteriorate.
Index figures
Index figures, base year 2010 = 100.

An index compares the value of a variable in a certain period with the value of the same variable in the base period. The index of this base period is 100.
Year-on-year change
Change compared to the same period in the previous year.

Change indicates the growth rate with respect to the same period of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.
Import price
Import price of goods.

Imports: the value of all goods brought into the Dutch economy for consumption. This is the case when import duties and national taxes have been paid. For imports from EU countries this is the value of the goods including freight and insurance up to the Dutch border (CIF). For imports from non-EU countries this is the value including freight and insurance up to the border of the European Union.
