The ARKO Labour-Cost Model: Characteristics and Application


  • Elsendoorn, G.T.
  • Nieuwland, A.H.


As of recent, EIM employs a revised labour-cost model. Amongst others, the revision was spurred by substantial changes materializing over the past three years in the field of social-security legislation. The objective of the ARKO (the abbreviation ARKO denotes the Dutch term ARbeidsKosten (labour cost)) labour-cost model comprises three targets: 1) Outline of the labour-cost structure, differentiated by sector and employee size-class in private enterprise, 2) Facilitation of forecasts of anticipated short-term labour-cost trends, 3) Assessment of the effects of policy measures affecting statutory employers' social-security contributions on various sectors and employee size-classes.
