Industry; production and sales, changes and index, 2015=100


This table presents information about developments in production and turnover in industry (excl. construction), SIC 2008 sections B - E. The data can be divided by a number of branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008). Developments are presented as percentage changes compared to a previous period and by means of indices. In this table, the base year is updated to 2015, in previous publications the base year was 2010.

Developments in turnover and volume are published in two formats. Firstly, in the form of year-on-year changes relative to the same period in the preceding year. These figures are shown both unadjusted and adjusted for calendar effects.
The second format pertains to period-on-period changes, for example quarter-on-quarter. Period-on-period changes are calculated by applying seasonal adjustment.

Data available from: January 2005

Status of the figures:
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. Currently, the monthly turnover figures of 2018 are definitive. Once definitive figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only revise the results if significant adjustments and/or corrections are necessary.

Changes as of 9 June 2020:
The figures of April 2020 have been added to the table. The figures of January-March 2020 have been adjusted.

This month the annual update of the seasonal-adjusment models has taken place. Because of additional changes that have been made due to Covid-19 the adjustments are a bit larger than in other years. All figures of 2019 have been revised for the final time and set to ''definitive'' status.

Additionally, the complete ''Production of consumer goods'' series, back till 2005, has been added to the table. This data was missing up until now.

Changes as of 7 June 2019:
The figures of April 2019 have been added to the table. The figures of January through March 2019 have been adjusted. The working day- and seasonal-adjustmentmodels have been updated, leading to the data back to january 2018 being revised and set to definitive.

Changes as of 9 April 2019:
The figures of February 2019 have been added to the table. The figures of 2018 and January 2019 have been adjusted, and all of the 2017 data has been finalized. Domestic and foreign turnover of Mining and quarrying, which were previously undisclosed, have now been published.

The underlying coding of the following classifications used in this table has been adjusted:
- Manufacture of capital goods
- Manufacture of consumer goods
- Manufacture of durable consumer goods
- Manufacture of intermediate goods
- Manufacture of non-durable consumergoods

It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS.
The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.

Changes as of 8 June 2018:
Turnover figures of industry for the month April 2018 have been added. For the calculation of the average day and seasonal adjusted turnover new setups have been implemented from January 2017 onwards.

Changes as of 9 April 2018:
Turnover figures of industry for the month February 2018 have been added. Turnover figures for January 2017 up to and including January 2018 have also been revised, because updated information was processed.

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. After completing the base year change production figures will be included in this table. For production figures see link in section 3.
