Table description


This table provides up-to-date information about the opinions held by Dutch entrepreneurs on their achievements, expectations and judgments regarding their business. This panel survey is aimed at gaining insight into the current situation, future development and judgments of Dutch enterprises. As a result it is possible to detect turning points in optimism or pessimism at an early stage, providing an early indication of possible trend changes in the economic activities of Dutch enterprises. Data are broken down by main business activity (SITC 2008). The questions submitted to the entrepreneurs at the beginning of a quarter concern output, turnover, prices, order books, stocks, investments, competitive position, economic climate, staff size and the obstacles they have encountered. In answering the questions relating to developments in the past three months and expectations for the next three months, the entrepreneurs are asked for a comparison with the preceding period of three months.

Data available from: first quarter 2012.

Status of the figures: All figures are definitive.

Changes as of May 18, 2022:
The results for second quarter 2022 have been added.

When will new figures be published?
The results for third quarter 2022 are expected to be published mid-August 2022.

Description topics

Turnover and selling prices
The weighted response rates to the questions:
- "Our turnover / marketing in the last three months increased
remained unchanged or decreased? "
- "Our turnover / marketing in the next three months will grow,
remain unchanged or decrease? "
Weighted response rates to the question:
- "Our total turnover will increase in the next year,
remain unchanged or decrease? "
- "Our foreign turnover / marketing in the last three months increased remained unchanged or decreased? "
- "Our foreign turnover will increase over the next three months,
remain unchanged or decrease? "
- "Our foreign turnover will increase in the next year,
remain unchanged or decrease? "
- "Our selling prices / rates over the next three months
will increase, remain unchanged or decrease? ".
Turnover next three months
Weighted response rates to the question:
- "Our total turnover over the next three months will increase,
remain unchanged or decrease? "
Balance turnover next three months
The weighted response rate of producers with an expected increase in turnover minus the weighted response rate of producers with an expected decrease in turnover. This balance shows the expected development of turnover in the next three months.
Workforce
The weighted response rates to the questions:
- "The staff in the last three months has
increased, remained unchanged or decreased? "
- "The staff will in the next three months
increase, remain unchanged or decrease?
- "The staff will in the next year
increase, remain unchanged or decrease?
Workforce next three months
The weighted response rates to the question:
- "The staff will in the next three months
increase, remain unchanged or decrease?
Balance workforce next three months
The weighted response rate of producers with an expected
increase in staff strength minus the weighted response rate of producers
with an expected decrease in staff strength in the next three months.
This balance provides insight into the development of staff strength in
the next three months.
Profitability
Profitability last three months
The weighted response rates to the quarterly question:
- 'Has the profitability of the enterprise improved, remained unchanged or declined in the last three months?'
Balance profitability last 3 months
The weighted response rate of producers indicating that
the profitability in the last three months has improved minus the
weighted response rate that it has declined.
This balance represents the development of the profitability over
the last three months compared with the previous three months.
