Table description


This table presents information on turnover and development in turnover in the sector motor vehicles and motorcycles trade (SIC 2008 code 45). These figures are shown both unadjusted and adjusted for working day effects. Developments are presented as percentage changes compared to a previous period and by means of indices. In this table, the base year is 2015

Data available from 1st quarter 2005.

Status of the figures:
Figures on 2021 are provisional, the preceding periods are definite. The figures of a calendar year will become definitive 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 corrected response.

Changes as of August 27, 2021:
Figures of the second quarter 2021 have been added. Figures of the previous periods in 2021 may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
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 apply adjustments if significant corrections are necessary.
