Gross fixed capital formation by type and by sector; NA, 1969-2016

Table description


This table provides figures on fixed capital formation by type of assets and by institutional sectors. It shows which assets have been purchased by which sector. Thse assets are used in a production process for more than one year.

Figures in this table are presented in the following units:

- Value at current prices, mln euro
- Chainlinked volume value at prices reference year 2010, mln euro
- Volume changes, %
- Prices indices 2010=100

Data available from: 1969 up to and including 2016.

Status of the figures:
Data from 1969 up to and including 2015 are final. Data of 2016 are provisional. Since this table has been discontinued, data of 2016 will not become final.

Changes as of June 22nd 2018:
None. This table has been discontinued.
Statistics Netherlands has carried out a revision of the national accounts. New statistical sources and estimation methods have been used during the revision. Therefore this table has been replaced by table Gross fixed capital formation by type and by sector; National Accounts. For further information see section 3.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable anymore.

Description topics

Value at current prices
The values are expressed at prices of the reporting period. Alternatively, values may be expressed at constant prices. In this case, prices of a reference period are used.
Fixed assets from production and imports
Expenditure on produced assets that are used in a production process for more than one year. This may concern a building, dwelling, transport equipment or a machine. This in contrast with goods and services which are used up during the production process, the so-called intermediate use (e.g. iron ore). Fixed capital does lose value over time as a result of normal wear and tear and obsolescence. This is called consumption of fixed capital (also called depreciation). The value of fixed capital formation in which the consumption of fixed capital is not deducted is called gross fixed capital formation. Deduction of the consumption of fixed capital results in net fixed capital formation.

The following types of fixed assets exist: dwellings and other buildings and structures, machinery and equipment, transport equipment, weapon systems (included in machinery and equipment), computers, software, telecommunication equipment, research and development, cultivated biological resources, mineral exploration and evaluation, and costs of ownership transfer on non-produced assets, like land, contracts, leases and licences.


Transport equipment
Equipment for moving people and objects. For examples motor vehicles, trailers and semi-trailers, and other transport equipment.
Passenger cars
Passenger cars.
Value at prices of 2010
The values are expressed at prices of the reference period 2010 by taking account of inflation. Alternatively, values may be expressed at prices of the reporting period.
