Cities and clusters are important from an economical point of view. According to various national and international studies, agglomeration economies mean that businesses in urban areas and clusters are more productive, experience greater growth and are more innovative than businesses located in non-urban areas. However, this does not apply to every type of business; nor is every type of urban area a dynamic motor for economic growth: there can even be considerable differences in the functioning and performance of regional economies within the Netherlands.
ICT, knowledge and the economy 2013 extensively describes how individuals and companies use ICT. Other aspects of the knowledge economy, such as education and research, are extensively dealt with as well. Historical trends and comparisons with other countries allow the figures to be clearly interpreted. The many graphs and tables make the present publication an accessible and comprehensive reference work.
Dutch ICT skills continue to increase and more and more people in the Netherlands are using mobile devices to access the internet. At home, laptops are increasingly replacing desktop computers, and at school more and more computers are connected to the internet. These are just some facts from The digital economy 2009.
This publication outlines the investment climate in the Netherlands using more than one hundred indicators. A systematic comparison is drawn between the position of the Netherlands and a fixed group of nineteen other countries.
The Netherlands is well matched with the other leading nations in ICT. Telework has expanded rapidly: half of all companies in the Netherlands facilitate telework. More and more Dutch people buy products and services online, and ICT has further penetrated the public sector.
The Netherlands remains an international frontrunner when it comes to the availability of ICT in households. Digital television has become popular in the Netherlands: over 2 million households used the application by December 2006. Furthermore, 7.5 million people had made online purchases at some point.
