Adjustment of population figures on St Eustatius and Saba

Between 1 January 2018 and 1 January 2019, the population registers of St Eustatius and Saba were cleaned up. As a result, approximately 200 people on St Eustatius and over 200 people on Saba were classified as emigrants. In 2018, they were still registered in the population records, but on inspection it turned out that they did not live on these islands anymore. Due to this adjustment, it is not possible to determine which part of the decrease in the number of employed is due to the clean-up and which part is an actual decrease in the number of employed.
