Table description


This table presents the (experimental) outcomes of the Dutch growth accounts. The growth accounts show the contributions of the different production factors to the economic growth. This helps to determine which part of production growth is explained by a change in input of capital (K), labour (L), energy (E), materials (M) or services (S).
The results of the growth accounts also show the development of multifactor productivity. This is the part of economic growth that cannot be attributed to one of the production factors. Disaggregated data and labour productivity are also published in this table.
This table is based on the current classification of branches (SIC 2008). The figures in this table are based on the National Accounts, which have been compiled in accordance with ESA 2010.

Data available from: 1995

Status of the figures:
Data from 1995 up to and including 2014 are final. Data of 2015 and 2016 are provisional. Since this table has been discontinued, data of 2015 and 2016 will not become final.

Changes as of 15 June 2018:
Figures of 1995-2000 and 2016 have been added. Data of 2014 and 2015 have been revised. As a result of the addition of the reporting year 2000 it was possible to calculate the annual changes for the year 2001. Previously they were indicated with a dot (.), but now the percentual change is displayed.

Changes as of 24 July 2018:
For the reporting year 2016 the indices with base year 2010 have been calculated incorrectly. They were not congruent with the annual percentage changes. This has been corrected. The difference with the previous version of this table varies between +2.5 points and -3.2 points.

Changes as of May 24th 2019:
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 Therefore this table has been replaced by table Approaches of domestic product (GDP); National Accounts. For further information see section 3.

When will new figures be published?
Not applicable anymore.

Description topics

Growth accounts
The volume change of the consolidated production or value added is attributed to the different production factors and to multi-factor productivity.
Based on consolidated production
Growth accounts based on consolidated production.

The volume change of the consolidated production is attributed to the different production factors and to multi-factor productivity. The contributions are measured in percentage points. The contributions of capital, labour, intermediate consumption and multi-factor productivity together add up to the volume change of the consolidated production.
Consolidated production
Production less the internal deliveries.

The consolidated production is the production remaining when a unit (industry, branch, commercial sector) is described as one single company.
Contribution of labour
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of labour.
Contribution of hours worked
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by the change in hours worked. This variable is part of the contribution of labour.
Contribution of labour composition
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by the change in background characteristics of labour. These characteristics are sex, age, level of education, branch/industry and covered by a collective agreement. This variable is part of the contribution of labour.
Contribution of capital
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of capital.
Contribution of intermediate consumption
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of intermediate consumption.
Contribution of energy
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of energy.
Contribution of materials
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of materials.
Contribution of services
The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in input of services.
Contribution of mfp
Contribution of multi-factor productivity

The part of volume change of consolidated production caused by a change in the production process. The contribution of multi-factor productivity is seen as the part of output growth that cannot be explained by the growth of inputs. A few explanations for this change are: technological progress, economies of scale, capacity utilisation and incidental factors such as weather conditions (for example in agriculture).
