Status of the figures:
The figures for the year 2023 are provisional. All other figures are final.

Changes as of 11 January 2024:
The provisional figures for November 2023 have been added.

Changes as of 11 December 2023:
The provisional figures for September and October 2023 have been added.
Despite the care with which the figures and previous publications have been compiled about all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands, it has been noticed that the published figures for the reporting periods April 2022 to August 2023 are incorrect.
Statistics Netherlands has published improved figures for the statistics on all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands for the reporting periods April 2022 to August 2023.
Also the improved figures of the associated quarters and the figure for 2022 are published.

Changes as of 14 November 2023:
Despite the care with which the figures and previous publications have been compiled about all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands, it has been noticed that the published figures for the reporting periods after March 2022 are incorrect due to a technical error. Statistics Netherlands is investigating the influence of this technical error on the results of this statistic and other statistics that use this statistic.

Based on this research, Statistics Netherlands will publish improved figures for the statistics on all overnight accommodation establishments in the Netherlands on December 11. This concerns the months April 2022 to October 2023 and the associated quarters. This means that the publication already planned for November 14 (covering the reporting month of September) will be postponed for a few weeks.

Changes as of 24 March 2022:
As of 24 March 2022, the municipality of Weesp will merge with the municipality of Amsterdam. This municipal redivision has been implemented in this table as at January 1, 2022.
Since January 2021, CBS has allowed companies to supply data in other ways, for example through cooperation with municipalities or other organisations with which agreements have been made.
This often involves processing figures that are collected by the municipality from visitor registers for overnight accommodation. The quality of the data is carefully monitored, but small trend breaks may occur in some regional breakdowns as a result of using these new sources.

When will new figures be published?
Figures of a new month become available within three months after the end of that month, these are provisional figures. The figures for the complete year are revised one month after publication of the December figures, these are revised provisional figures. Two months later definite figures will be published.
