Supplementary notes

The source states the following: "the above chart provides an indication of the level of contactless payment use among certain demographic groups compared to the average consumer for the years 2015 and 2016. The figures in the above chart represent the extent to which demographic groups make more or less use of contactless payments compared to the average Dutch consumer, which is represented by 1" (in Dutch: "bovenstaande grafiek geeft een indicatie van hoe intensief bepaalde bevolkingsgroepen contactloos betalen gebruiken ten opzichte van de gemiddelde consument voor de jaren 2015 en 2016. Naarmate men meer (minder) gebruik maakt van contactloos betalen bij het afrekenen van aankopen dan de doorsnee Nederlander, zal de getoonde staaf hoger (lager) uitkomen dan 1". The source also adds, "1 = share of contactless payments in total POS payments for the average Dutch consumer" (in Dutch: 1 = aandeel contactloze betalingen in het totaal aantal toonbankbetaling van de gemiddelde Nederlander).

The source states that the numbers provided concern payments "made at points of sales – e.g. shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, petrol stations, services, markets, vending machines – and person-to-person payments". Purchases from online shops and bank transfers between consumers were excluded from the survey.
