How are the requested variables determined?

Thanks to the collaboration, as mentioned on the web page CBS for your business, one Business Survey Netherlands is created, which keeps a finger on the pulse of the Dutch private sector every quarter. For all commercial industries, the developments and expectations surrounding the most important economic variables are mapped by asking entrepreneurs about their opinion, for example whether the turnover has risen, remained the same or decreased. The variables include production, capacity utilisation, turnover, order books, price developments, inventories, staff size, investments, returns and impediments to productivity. In addition, incidental extra questions may be asked about current topics.
