Abstract

This study analyses Dutch employment growth and dynamics during the booming end 1990s. In this period many new jobs were created as employment growth was strongly positive. Next to these net flows of employment the gross flows of employment – i.e. the numbers of jobs created and number of jobs destructed- are calculated per establishment in 1994, 1996 and 1998. From the analyses follows that relatively many jobs were destructed. Further, relatively more job creation and job destruction took place in small than in large establishments. Significant evidence for job creation as a consequence of government subsidized programs was not found. Neither did the development of real wages affect job creation or destruction during the end 1990s.
