Table description


This table presents information about developments in retail turnover (SIC 2008 code 47). The data can be broken down by different types of shops: shops that predominantly sell goods online and those that predominantly sell goods through other sales channels (physical shops, markets, etc.). The results are expressed in terms of indices and year-on-year changes. The survey used to measure turnover change for online sales covers retail trade companies with 10 or more employees; these represent 65-70 percent of total online sales. Small businesses are not covered. The base year (2013) differs from other business statistics at the Statistics Netherlands, as data collection for this sector started in 2013. This should be taken into account when making comparisons to other StatLine tables. The statistics on online sales turnover are currently in an experimental phase. As a result, the methodology is still subject to revision.

Data available from January 2014 - Januari 2018.

Status of the figures
Figures of 2018 are provisional, figures from preceding periods are definite.

Changes as of 13 June 2018:

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable anymore.
This table will be replaced by a new table on June 13 2018 due to the five-yearly change of the base year. See paragraph 3.

Description topics

Turnover year-on-year change
Change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same month of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT included. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
