Determinants of Dutch trade union membership are analysed for the years 1979, 1987 and 1995. By means of a decomposition method it is established that changing characteristics of the working population primarily caused the union decline between 1979 and 1987, whereas the recovery afterwards can be entirely attributed to changing unionization behaviour. A further application of the decomposition method shows that the contribution of the separate explanatory variables to shifts in the density rate is less straightforward than the results of the first analyses suggest.
