The present volume is part of a series of sectoral studies on the
evolution of concentration in the member states of the European
Community.
These reports were compiled by the different national Institutes end
experts, engaged by the Commission to effect the study programme in
question«
Regarding the specific and general interest of these reports and the
responsibility taken by the Commission with regard to the European
Parliament, they are published wholly in the original version.
The Commission refrains from commenting, only stating that the
responsibility for the data and opinions appearing in the reports,
rests solely with the Institute or the expert who is the author.
Other reports on the sectoral programme will be published by the
Commission as soon as they are received.
The Commission will also publish a series of documents and tables of
syntheses, allowing for international comparisons on the evolution of
concentration in the different member states of the Cornnmity. PREFACE
Economie policy is based on understanding of the structures existing between economic magni­
tudes and sense for actual reality, mostly relying on figures about facts.
An institute for applied economic research as the Economic Institute Tilburg has to be engaged
in both fields. The contract offered by the European Statistical Bureau, under which this
report has been made, gave us an appreciated opportunity in the latter field.
Formerly surveys like this were conducted by national statistical bureaus, but in 1978 it
turned out that the Dutch Central Bureau of Statistics had not enough capacity available at
the period desired.
The underlying survey is the Dutch contribution to a series of identical surveys in the com­
mon market countries. On the one hand this offers a good basis for international comparison
of prices, on the other hand it caused typical difficulties in the set-up phase.
We have to acknowledge the cooperation of the respondents and informants, the people who col­
lected and processed the data, mrs. Vrins for her assistence on the reporting in english and
in particular mrs. Gerry van Gorp, who did take care of many of the contacts with the re­
spondents and informants and typed our many letters and the manuscript with admirable speed
and perfection.
