This table contains the dynamic purchasing power of people in the Caribbean Netherlands; the islands of Bonaire, St. Eustatius, and Saba. Persons are differentiated according to sex, position in the household and household characteristics age main earner, main income source and income level. The income level quartile groups are determined per island, since the income differences between the islands make a classification for the Caribbean Netherlands as a total difficult to interpret.
The population consists of the people in private households with income observed. The reference date is December 31 of the year under review.
