Share of young adults moving to the European Netherlands
To calculate the share of young adults born in the former Netherlands Antilles or Aruba who moved from the Caribbean Netherlands to the European Netherlands (for study purposes or otherwise), firstly the number of young adults on a yearly basis was determined. This was divided by the total number of young adults at a particular age who were born in the former Netherlands Antilles or Aruba. In this case, the number of 17 to 25-year-olds was divided by 9. This is how the share of young adults is calculated who left for the European Netherlands and how many did so for study.
