Mathematical sciences and their value for the Dutch economy by Deloitte

Mathematics supports a quarter of Dutch national income

The 900,000 mathematical sciences jobs contribute to the Dutch economy in three ways:

  • First, these jobs create income for the people who work in those jobs. This is called the direct effect.
  • Second, the industries where these people work, procure goods and services from other industries which in turn procure from other industries as well, and so on. The impact of these purchases is called the indirect effect.
  • Finally, the impact of the household spending resulting from direct and indirect effects of mathematical sciences jobs. This is called the induced effect.
