In this paper we present data on flows in the labour market for the
period 1980 - 2010, which have been constructed using various sources.
The focus of our analysis is on four labour market states within the
working age population of age 15 - 64: Employment, Unemployment, Not
working and Disabled. A comparison is provided with the earlier studies
of Broersma and den Butter (1994) and Kock (1998), and with the data
published by the CBS from the labour force survey (EBB). The latter
comparison is also used to indicate the presence of the time aggregation
bias in the CBS data.
Key words: labour market flows, time aggregation bias, the Netherlands
