Bankruptcies, adjusted for court session days


This table contains the number of bankruptcy orders issued by Dutch courts. Numbers are broken down by type of bankruptcy (natural persons with or without sole proprietorship, enterprises and institutions). The outcomes have been corrected for the effects of session days of the courts. Usually, bankruptcies are pronounced on a fixed day in the week, mostly Tuesday. As a result, a calendar month may contain four or five so-called session days. As a result, the number of pronounced bankruptcies can fluctuate from month to month. The series of outcomes in this publication have been cleaned for the effect of session days.
