Export earnings are earnings generated through exports of goods and services. The calculation of the figures is based on input and output tables and supply and demand tables provided by National Accounts (NA). The 114 product groups surveyed by NA have been reduced to 64 product aggregates to facilitate comparison between products. Re-exports are excluded. The survey solely deals with exports of products manufactured in the Netherlands. NA concepts are not consistent with the concepts used by the International Trade in Goods (source statistics). As a result, data of total exports of Dutch products vary from data found in various StatLine tables.
