Opinions on names referencing the Dutch East India Company in the Netherlands 2019

This statistic displays the results of a survey of opinions about what should be done with place names which reference the Dutch East India Company (known as the VOC in Dutch) in the Netherlands in 2019. The survey results suggest that as of 2019, public opinion in the Netherlands was largely opposed to changing the names of public places which reference the Dutch East India Company. Over 80 percent of respondents did not think that public place names which reference the company should be changed, while seven percent of respondents thought that place names should be changed in acknowledgment of the VOC's association with the colonial history, war and slavery.

In your opinion, what should happen to the names of public places which refer to the Dutch East India Company in the Netherlands?*

Supplementary notes

*The survey statement was phrased by the source as follows: "Wat moet er volgens jou gebeuren met openbare plaatsen waarvan de naam verwijst naar het VOC-verleden van Nederland?" (English: "In your opinion, what should happen to the names of public places which refer to the Dutch East India Company past of the Netherlands?")

** The source provides the following information about the survey participants: 40,000 of survey respondents were part of the EenVandaag Opinion panel and 6,000 respondents were external, one-time participants. 713 people with non-western migration backgrounds, primarily from Morocco, Turkey, Suriname and the Dutch Antilles, took part.
The results have been weighted to represent the entire population.
