Annual Report Youth Monitor 2016 Summary

Overview of convergence processes between people with a migration background and those with a Dutch background.

From January to July 2016, the Netherlands is to hold the presidency of the Council of Europe. To mark this occasion, Statistics Netherlands (CBS) has published The Netherlands on the European Scale 2016. This publication shows how the Netherlands is performing in relation to the other EU member states. In which areas are we top of the class? Where are we lagging behind and where are we ‘an average member state’?

Food for thought comprises a selection of facts and figures about food. Which foodstuffs are produced in the Netherlands, and which have to be imported? How much milk does an average Dutch cow produce? Where do the Dutch buy their food: in supermarkets alone, or also from baker’s and butcher’s shops and market stalls? Does a loaf of bread cost more than ten years ago? Or less? Will the demand for organic products continue to grow? And: are more women overweight than men? These questions and many more are examined in this unique overview of food and health in the Netherlands.
