Table description


This table contains figures on business confidence. Business confidence is a mood indicator that indicates the direction in which the economy (the gross domestic product, GDP) is expected to develop. When assessing the outcomes, it can be assumed that the more optimistic or pessimistic the entrepreneurs are, the more the value of business confidence will deviate positively or negatively from the zero line and the greater the expectation is that the development of the GDP in the coming months will increase or decrease.
Business confidence in a province is a weighted average of the confidence indicators of the underlying industries / sectors that together form a representative reflection of the total Dutch business community.
