Annual / Production statistics RGS

Every year, CBS publishes data on the revenues, expenses and employment in the Dutch private sector. This involves financial information and data on the number of employees. Therefore, we send survey questionnaires to large, medium-sized and small enterprises, including the self-employed (the so-called zzp’ers). The number of small enterprises and zzp’ers has grown in recent years, which makes it even more important to obtain an accurate picture of these enterprises as well. CBS publishes statistics on each individual branch of industry. This information is essential in compiling annual economic growth rates for the Netherlands.
