    This study investigates the development of the firm-size distribution in the netherlands using various measures. Data are used for the period 1978 through 1989 covering practically the entire dutch private sector. The results show a general tendency towards smaller firm sizes in manufacturing industries until 1986, but indicate an opposite development after that year. This tendency towards larger firm sizes after 1986 is also encountered for non-manufacturing industries.
