09/03/2011 09:30

In February, 535 businesses and institutions (excluding one-man businesses) in the Netherlands were declared bankrupt, nearly 50 more than in January. 

As the number of businesses declared bankrupt in a particular month is closely related to the number of days courts are in session, it may vary considerably from month to month. Therefore, the three-monthly moving average is a more reliable indicator.

The three-monthly moving average was 482 in February versus 497 in January 2011.
