Table description


This table shows statistics about gifts. The gifts are made up for all gifts with a tax-registration on the gift available.
Because of the revision of the income statistics, there are differences between 2010 and 2011. From 2007 until 2010 background characteristics of donors and recipients represent the situation on the 31st of December in that year. From 2011 onwards characteristics from donors and recipients represent the situation on the 1st of January of the given year.

Data available from: 2007.

Status of the figures:
The figures for 2007 to 2016 are final. The figures for 2017 and 2018 are preliminary.

Changes as of 2 March 2021:
The underlying coding of classification Wealth (Wealth groups - Wealth: income unknown and Wealth: unknown) used in this table has been adjusted. It is now in line with the standard encoding defined by CBS. The structure and data of the table have not been adjusted.

Changes as of 17 September 2020:
Figures for 2016 are finalized without update. No new version of the source data has become available. Therefore, source data upon which preliminary figures have been published are used for finalization.

When will new figures be published?
New figures will be published in the 4th quarter of 2021.
