National coverage

Dit is een dataset die landelijk dekkend is. De data heeft betrekking op heel Nederland.


This table contains quarterly and yearly figures on the economic activities where people work. The population of 15 to 74 years of age (excluding the institutionalized population) in paid employment is classified according to the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC 2008). A division by sex, age, level of education, professional status and working hours is available.

Due to changes in the survey design and the questionnaire of the Labour Force Survey (LFS), a revision of the figures for 2021 was carried out in the first quarter of 2022. As a result, the numbers of 2021 and later will not be comparable to the years 2003-2020.

Data available for 2003-2022
