Table description


This table presents information on the development in turnover in the Temporary employment sector (SIC 2008 code 78). The data can be divided by a number of branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008). Job pool companies (SIC code 78203) are not included in the survey. These companies account for only a very small part (1 percent) of total temporary employment sector (SIC code 78). The figures are expressed as a percentage change compared to a previous period and by means of an index. In this table the base year is updated to 2015, in previous publications the base year was 2010. Developments in turnover are published in two formats. Firstly, as a year-on-year mutation which expresses growth relative to the same period in the preceding year. The second format pertains to a period-on-period mutation, for example quarter-on-quarter. Period-on-period mutations are derived by applying seasonal adjustment. The predecessor of this table (see paragraph 3) also included the hours worked. As of the first quarter of 2018 the hours worked aren’t published by Statistics Netherlands anymore.

Data available from 1st quarter 2005.

Status of the figures:
The figures on 2020 are provisional, the previous 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 31, 2020:
Figures on the 2nd quarter 2020 have been added. Figures on previous periods in 2020 may have been adjusted.

When will new figures be published?
As a rule 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.
