More about the new StatLine


StatLine is the electronic databank of Statistics Netherlands. It enables users to compile their own tables and graphs. The information can be accessed, printed and downloaded free of charge.
Statistics Netherlands has introduced a new interface to the online databank StatLine in November 2017. The new StatLine guarantees continuity in the accessibility of the figures of Statistics Netherlands with a user-friendly application. Only the interface has been renewed; all figures and datasets will remain available. The old interface has reached the end of its life and is unsuited for further development in the next years.

The new StatLine

The new StatLine has been completely modernised. It offers more overview and user convenience for finding and showing data. Searching can be done by theme and also by a specified keyword. It is possible to create a graph from a table that can easily be exported.
Most important changes:

  • The new StatLine is fit for all screen formats and devices (responsive design)
  • The renewed design looks fresh and modern;
  • Navigation is more user-friendly and in accordance with internet conventions;
  • Many more options for graphics;
  • Another format for links to tables.

To afford users time to change to the new StatLine, both the old and new interface will be available for a period of six months. After that the old interface will be turned off. Links to the old interface will then be redirected to the new interface.

Open data at Statistics Netherlands

The new StatLine uses the Open data facility of Statistics Netherlands. This facility is freely accessible to everyone. With Open data, all StatLine datasets are electronically available through so-called web services. For more information, please refer to ‘CBS StatLine databank as open data’ or visit the catalogue of available datasets in the Open data portal.
