Table description


This table presents information on turnover and volume developments in the sector Imports of new cars and light motor vehicles (SIC 45.111). Developments are presented as percentage changes compared to the same period in the preceding year and by means of indices with base year 2015.

Data available from: January 2005

Status of the figures:
Figures on 2021 and 2020 are provisional, figures from preceding periods are definite.
The figures of a calendar year will become definite no later than five months after the end of that calendar year. Until then, the figures in this table will be “provisional” and can still be adjusted as a result of delayed response.

Changes as of March 30, 2021:
Figures of February 2021 have been added and figures of periods of 2021 and 2020 may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
As a rule, monthly statistics are published six to eight weeks after the end of the reporting month. Quarterly statistics are published on the last working day of the second month after the quarter. Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only revise the results if significant adjustments and/or corrections are necessary.

Description topics

Turnover indices
An index compares the value of a variable (e.g. turnover) in a certain period with the value of the same variable in the base period. The index of this base period is 100.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
Turnover change
Change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same month of the previous year as a percentage. Statistics Netherlands calculates this on the basis of non-rounded figures.

Turnover is defined as the value of sales of goods and services to third parties, VAT excluded. Turnover includes the main activity as well as secondary activities. Third parties are consumers and enterprises not belonging to (the Dutch part of) the own group of companies.
