Table description


This table presents information about developments in turnover in the sector Business and ICT services (SIC sections J, M and N). The data can be divided by a number of branches according to Statistics Netherlands' Standard Industrial Classification of all Economic Activities 2008 (SIC 2008).
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 and volume 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.

Data available from: 1st quarter 2005.

Status of the figures:

Figures on 2021 are provisional. Figures on 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 November 30, 2021:

Figures on the 3rd quarter of 2021 have been added. Figures on previous periods in 2021 may have been adjusted.

For NACE 7912 Tour operators, there was an extreme development in the third quarter of 2020 compared to the previous quarter. A one-off alternative calculation method should have been applied to correctly process this development. Therefore the index for this quarter has been adjusted. As a result of this adjustment, the indices for the fourth quarter of 2020, the first quarter of 2021 and the second quarter of 2021 have also been changed. The seasonally adjusted indices have changed from the first quarter of 2013 to the second quarter of 2021. The reason for this is that the adjustments in the regular indices from the third quarter of 2020 onwards have a major impact on the seasonal component of this index series, which is reflected in the seasonally adjusted indices for earlier years.
The aforementioned adjustments in the SBI 7912 Tour operators are also reflected in the publication groups (79, N, M-N).

When will new figures be published?

Statistics Netherlands usually publishes the first results two months after the reporting period. Figures may be updated subsequently as a result of increased response. Five months after the reporting year, all late response is used to compile the definite figures, for all quarters in that reporting year. Until that point, figures are provisional. After that, figures are definite. Once definite figures have been published, Statistics Netherlands will only apply adjustments if significant 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.
Year-on-year change
The change in turnover indicates the growth rate with respect to the same period 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.
