“Facts that matter”

Our work has an enormous social and economic impact. Based on our independent and reliable information, important policy decisions are taken in The Hague as well as in Brussels. Provinces, municipalities and businesses, but also individual citizens benefit from the results of our research. Every single day, these results make national news headlines.

How is the Dutch economy really performing? The answer to this question calls for a broader look than merely economic (GDP) growth over the last quarter. The system of the national accounts enables us to present a comprehensive picture of how the Dutch economy is developing. 

Why do Dutch households seem to benefit only partially from the economic prosperity over the past few years? Why has the economic climate been more unsettled in the Netherlands compared to Belgium since the turn of the century?

In this workshop, we use interesting examples to show you how the Dutch economy can be analysed using figures compiled by CBS. You will be challenged to assume the role of researcher, editor or spokesperson at CBS.

Do you want to find out how to make economic figures accessible for the general public and what CBS can offer you in terms of career opportunities?

Come visit us, you are very welcome!
