Table description


This table contains figures on the expenditures and per task (policy area) according to region and size (in number of inhabitants) in millions of euros and in euros per inhabitant. The presented figures are based on data that adhere to the definitions and classifications that municipalities themselves use in their administration. These data are supplied to Statistics Netherlands through the questionnaire called Information for Third Parties (Iv3). The directives for this questionnaire have been laid down in the Directive for Budgeting and Accounting for provinces and municipalities (BBV).
In 2017 the policy areas have been revised and these are now called tasks (before that they were called functions), and a direct comparison of the policy areas with earlier years is therefore no longer possible. In the administration of municipalities for the years 2017 and 2018 the classification of expenditures and revenues by task is sometimes revised, which could cause (small) shifts between tasks between the years 2017 and 2018.

Data available from: 2017

Status of the figures:
The figures in this table are provisional at the time of first publication.
The figures become definitive when figures for the following year are added to the series.

Changes as of 20 December 2022:
The provisional figures for 2021 have been added.
The figures for 2020 have been adjusted from provisional to definite.

When will new figures be published?
The new figures are published 12 months after the reporting period. The figures can be adjusted on the basis of the availability of new or updated source material. In general, the adjustments are small. The adjustments are made the moment a new annual figure is added to the series.
