Status of the figures:
Figures on the four previous quarters are provisional, the remainder are definite.

Changes as of March 22, 2021:
Figures of the third and fourth quarter 2020 have been added and figures from two quarters preceeding may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
New results are made available sixty calendar days after the period under review (quarter). After publication of the definite results, Statistics Netherlands will only make adjustments if major changes occur.
