Table description


This table contains quarterly and yearly figures on labour participation by position in the household in the Netherlands. The population of 15 to 74 years of age (excluding the institutionalized population) is divided into the employed labour force, the unemployed labour force and those not in the labour force. The employed labour force is subdivided on the basis of the professional status, and the average working hours. A division by sex and age is available.

Due to a redesign of the Labour Force Survey (LFS) the planned update on the third quarter in November 2021 will be postponed to the first quarter of 2022. Because of the changes in the survey design and questionnaire the numbers on the whole of 2021 will then be revised. As a result, the numbers of 2021 will not be comparable to the previous years.

Data available from: 2003

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2021 in this table are final. However, due to changes in the survey design and the questionnaire, a revision of the 2021 figures will be implemented in the first quarter of 2022.

Changes as of November 16, 2021:
Due to a redesign of the Labor Force Survey (LFS), no new figures for the third quarter of 2021 will be published in 2021. The third quarter is therefore filled with dots.

When will new figures be released?
New figures will be published in the first quarter of 2022. Due to changes in the survey design and the questionnaire of the LFS, a revision of the figures will be implemented for 2021.
