Statistics Netherlands, CBS

The mission of Statistics Netherlands (Centraal Bureau voor de Statistiek, CBS) is to publish reliable and coherent statistical information which responds to the needs of Dutch society. The responsibility of CBS is twofold: firstly, to compile (official) national statistics and secondly to compile European (community) statistics. The information published by CBS deals with subjects directly affecting the lives of Dutch citizens. These include economic growth, consumer prices, crime but also leisure. CBS makes results accessible to the public through various channels, such as the CBS website and StatLine databank. CBS is an autonomous administrative body. This means that CBS performs public service tasks, but operates independently and not under the direct authority of a Dutch ministry. The Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate is politically responsible for relevant legislation, budget and conditions. CBS is financed from the state budget.

Statistics Netherlands is a partner of Business.gov.nl.
