Table description


Statistics Netherlands collects monthly data on imports and exports of goods. In this table on imports and exports of goods the change of ownership of the goods is decisive, not whether they crossed the Dutch border. The table comprises index figures and changes in terms of percentage of total imports and exports of goods, broken down by value, price and volume. The indices are based on 2010=100. The changes in terms of percentage are compared with the same period in the previous year.

Data available from 1995 January up to and including 2018 July.

Status of the figures:
Figures for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 are provisional. The other figures are definite. Since this table has been discontinued, provisional data will not become final.

Changes as of 11 October 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 Therefore this table has been replaced by table Imports/exports; change of ownership; volume and price, changes. For further information see section 3.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable anymore.

Description topics

Indices
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.
Value
Value index figures, base year 2010 = 100.

The statistical value is the value of the goods at the moment they cross the border. For imports from EU countries this value is inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border. For imports from non-EU countries this value is inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the border of the European Union. For exports this value is the value of the goods inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border.
Original series
Measured figures.
Not adjusted for differences in the number of working days.
Working day adjusted series
Working day adjusted value index figures, base year 2010=100.

Census X12-ARIMA is used to adjust the value and volume figures for differences in the number of working days. The method corrects for national holidays, leap days and the difference between weekdays and weekends.
Price
Not adjusted for differences in the number of working days.
Volume
Volume index figures, base year 2010 = 100.
Original series
Measured figures.
Not adjusted for differences in the number of working days.
Working day adjusted series

Year-on-year change
Change compared to the same period in the previous year.

Change in a variable 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.
Value
Value changes compared to the same period in the previous year.

The statistical value is the value of the goods at the moment they cross the border. For imports from EU countries this value is inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border. For imports from non-EU countries this value is inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the border of the European Union. For exports this value is the value of the goods inclusive of freight and insurance charges up to the Dutch border.
