Statistics Netherlands (CBS) collects and publishes statistical information related to the economy, population and society at national, regional and local levels. In order to get this information, CBS may ask businesses to fill in a questionnaire. For this, businesses will be selected randomly.
If you run a business in the Netherlands, you may receive a request to participate in such a survey. CBS will indicate whether you are legally obliged to do so. If you want the questionnaire to be filled in by your accountant, CBS will send you an authorisation form.
Fewer and simpler questionnaires
Statistics Netherlands is reducing the number of questionnaires as well as simplifying them. As a result, there will be fewer surveys to participate in, while at the same time they take less time to complete.
