Description topics

Estimated value transported goods
Estimated value of transported goods expressed in millions of euros. In the case of imported goods, this is the value of foreign goods supplied to residents according to the international trade statistics. Imports from EU countries: the value of goods is including freight and insurance costs to the Dutch border. Imports from non-EU countries: the value is including freight and insurance costs to the external border of the European Union. In the case of exports, this is the value of goods supplied by Dutch residents to foreign trading partners according to the international trade statistics. The value is including freight and insurance costs to the Dutch border.

Lower bound 95% confidence interval
This is the lower bound of the interval that contains the true (unknown) value with 95% certainty.
Upper bound 95% confidence interval
This is the upper bound of the interval that contains the true (unknown) value with 95% certainty.
Confidence interval
The estimated 95-percent confidence interval expressed as a percentage. For example, a confidence interval of 10 percent means that the real figure lies within the interval defined by the figure in the table minus 10 and plus 10 percent with a probability of 0.95. The real figure is also more likely to be found in the centre of the confidence interval than towards the extremities. So, the real figure is more likely to be close to the figure in the table than far away.
Estimated gross weight transported goods
Estimated gross weight of transported goods expressed in millions of kg. The gross weight includes the weight of the goods and packing, but is exclusive the weight of the container in which the goods are carried.
