Supplementary notes

The source adds: "an employed person may have more than one job at a time. In that case the person has a main job and a secondary job. Each job counts separately. For the calculation of the average number of jobs in a certain period the starting date and end date of a job are taken into account. The weekly working hours are left out of account. Two successive jobs both with a 6-month working period will always count as one job in the average number of jobs, regardless of whether these jobs are full-time or part-time."

* The source explains that "All enterprises and institutions active in the Netherlands are included in a collective labour agreement (CAO in Dutch) sector. The division into CAO sectors is based on the position of employees in the negotiations on working conditions. There are three collective labour agreement sectors: private enterprises, government and subsidised corporations."
