Table description


This table contains yearly figures on the attachment of people to the labour market for the special municipalities Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba (the Caribbean Netherlands). The population of 15 to 74 years of age (excluding the institutionalized population) is divided into the employed labour force and the non-employed labour force. The employed labour force is subdivided on the basis of whether they want to work more or not. The non-employed labour force is subdivided into the unemployed and those not in the labour force. Those not in the labour force are subdivided based on the search and availability criteria. A division by sex, age and level of education is available.

Data available from: 2012

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are final.

Changes as of 13 July 2021:
The figures of 2020 are added

Changes as of 26 April 2019:
The figures of 2018 are added
Because of a programming error the figures about wanting to work more hours, and not wanting to work more hours in the previous version of this table were incorrect. Too little people were wrongly assigned to the group who wants to work more hours. This is corrected in this version of the table.
The figures about the highest level of education have been revised. The revision concerns people who attended common years of education (avo). Where they previously had an intermediate level of education, they now receive a low level of education, following the format used for the European Netherlands.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be published every two years.
