An estimated 825,000 American jobs are supported by Dutch trade and investment with the Netherlands in 2018.

This number consists of two parts: direct jobs at Dutch enterprises active in the United States, and jobs supported by the export of goods and services to the Netherlands. The most recent data available for these number are from 2015.

The US Bureau of Economic Analysis calculated that 460,400 direct jobs were the result of Dutch enterprises active in the United in 2015.

Embassy staff calculated the number of jobs supported by the export of goods and services to the Netherlands. According to the US International Trade Administration, every $1 billion of goods exported supports 5,128 jobs while every $1 billion of services exports supports 6,765 jobs.

With total goods exports of $40.286 billion and total services exports of $16.245 billion to the Netherlands in 2015, calculation yields 316,500 supported jobs due to exports to the Netherlands.

Adding both numbers yields an estimated 777,000 jobs.

To gain insight into the development of the number of supported jobs up to the current year, the data is extrapolated based on its historic trend.

From 2010-2015, the average growth rate of the number of supported jobs was 3.65 percent. Embassy staff projected the number to 2018 by a conservative 2 percent growth per year, roughly half of the average growth rate of the aforementioned period.
