Table description


This table concerns jobs of foreign-born employees within the age range of 18 up to 74 years. A distinction is made between employees who are registered as a resident in the Dutch population register (BRP; formerly known as the GBA) and those not registered as a resident in the BRP. Furthermore, the table can be broken down into migration background, gender, age, hourly wage class, employment contract type, and the Dutch standard industrial classification (SBI 2008).
All employees registered as resident were at least 18 years old when they immigrated to the Netherlands. Likewise, the non-resident employees were at least 18 years old at the start of their stay in the Netherlands.

The variable ‘migration background’ is included as a background variable. Because the target population consists of both resident and non-resident employees, it is not always possible to directly derive the migration background. Missing data in this respect are imputed using information on someone’s country of permanent residence or someone’s nationality.

Data available from: 2010.

Status of the figures:
The statistics in this table are definite.

Changes as of 20 April 2020:
This is a new table.

When will new figures be published?
New figures for 2018 will be published in the final quarter of 2019.
