Table description


Fixed capital formation by groups of provinces, province and COROP region.
This table concerns regional figures on fixed capital formation (gross) by type of capital good.
The regional figures are in accordance with the national accounts, figures on gross fixed capital formation from production and imports (so, excluding sales of existing assets).

The new Standard Industrial Classification 2008 (SIC 2008) is used in the National and Regional Accounts of the Netherlands. This code is based on the European classification Nomenclature générale des Activités économiques dans la Communauté Européenne (NACE Rev. 2) which is used in all Member States of the European Union.
It is in use for the year 2008 onwards.

Data available from: 1995.

Status of the figures:
Data of the years 1995 to 2019 are final.

Changes as of 15th December 2021:
The final reporting year 2019 has been added.

When will new figures be published?
Final data will be published in December 2022.

Description topics

Fixed cap. form. by type of capital good
Fixed capital formation by type of capital good.
Civil engineering
Structures other than residential structures, including the costs of the streets, sewers and site clearance and preparation. Also included are public monuments not classified as dwellings or buildings other than dwellings; shafts, tunnels and other structures associated with mining mineral and energy reserves; and the construction of sea-walls, dykes and flood barriers intended to improve land adjacent but not integral to them. Examples include highways, streets, roads, railways and airfield runways; bridges, elevated highways, tunnels and subways; waterways, harbours, dams and other waterworks; long-distance pipelines, communication and power lines; local pipelines and cables, ancillary works; constructions for mining and manufacture; and constructions for sport and recreation.
Machinery and equipment
Machinery and equipment including weapons systems.
Computers software and databases
Computer programs, program descriptions and supporting materials for both systems and applications software. Included are the initial development and subsequent extensions of software as well as acquisition of copies that are classified as computer software assets.
Files of data organised to permit resource-effective access and use of the data. For databases created exclusively for own use the valuation is estimated by costs.
Research and development
Consists of the value of expenditure on creative work undertaken on a systematic basis in order to increase the stock of knowledge, including knowledge of man, culture and society, and use of this stock of knowledge to devise new applications. The value is determined in terms of the economic benefits expected in the future. Unless the value can be reasonably estimated it is, by convention, valued as the sum of the costs, including those of unsuccessful research and development. Research and development that will not provide a benefit to the owner is not classified as an asset and is instead recorded as intermediate consumption.
