Human capital in the Netherlands

The report presents experimental estimations of the level and growth of human capital in the period 1999-2009, and discusses the plausibility of these estimates based on the lifetime income approach. The figures presented in this report are not official statistics of Statistics Netherlands, and not published as such. The estimates are still under investigation and have a highly explorative character, and should therefore be treated with caution when drawing conclusions based on the current research results. The results just give an indication of the sources of growth of human capital, investment in human capital, and how the estimate of human capital in the Netherlands compares to other types of capital and GDP, and to other countries.
