The economic growth is still not expressed in an equal rise of comprehensive wellbeing for Dutch households. While the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) per capita already returned to its pre-crisis level in 2016, this is not the case for comprehensive wellbeing. There are also big differences within the Netherlands in terms of comprehensive wellbeing between regions.
This is shown in the Comprehensive Indicator of Wellbeing (Dutch name: Brede Welvaartsindicator, BWI) 2017 of Utrecht University and Rabobank that was presented today. This indicator is an integral gauge that provides insight on the development of broad prosperity in the Netherlands since 2016.
