Publication revision National accounts, reporting period 2021

About this publication

Today, CBS is publishing the first results of the revision of the Dutch national accounts. This revised publication relates to the initial outcomes for reporting year 2021. Subsequently, the revised figures for 1995 to Q1 2024 will be published at the end of June.

The national accounts are revised periodically. Part of the revision involves the introduction of new sources, methods and concepts in the national accounts to ensure optimal realignment of how the Dutch economy is presented with all the underlying statistics, sources and international guidelines on the compilation of the national accounts. The European Commission has recommended that member states revise their national accounts at least every five years, with this revision being the Netherlands’ response to this.
