Imports/exports; change of ownership; volume and price, changes

Statistics Netherlands collects monthly data on imports and exports of goods. In this table on imports and exports of goods the change of ownership of the goods is decisive, not whether they crossed the Dutch border. The table comprises index figures and changes in terms of percentage of total imports and exports of goods, broken down by value, price and volume. The indices are based on 2015=100. The changes in terms of percentage are compared with the same period in the previous year.

Data available from: 1995 January

Status of the figures:
Data from 1995 up to and including 2016 are final. Data of 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 are provisional.

Changes as of 15 May 2020:
Data over March 2020 have been added. Data over January and February 2020 have been adjusted.

Import and export figures may be adjusted as new or updated source information from the monthly international trade statistics and producer prices becomes available. In addition, the figures are adjusted retrospectively to fit those of imports and exports of goods in the quarterly National Accounts and the annual National Accounts. A complete revision of the National Accounts is carried out once every five years.

When will new figures be published?
Six to seven weeks after the end of the month under review.
