Release Information

Statistics Belgium provides subnational components of change data annually.  Data is presented as a number. Data covers regions, provinces, and arrondissements.

Data on population change since 1988 is from the National Registry. It is centralized information primarily from municipal population registers. The historical data (before 1988) came for communal registers directly.

These data refer to all persons who have experienced one of the following events in a given year:
  • Birth
  • Death
  • Change of residence in the country (internal migration)
  • Immigration from abroad (international migration)
  • Emigration to foreign destinations (international migration)
  • Change of nationality (or loss obtaining Belgian nationality)

Since 1996, asylum seekers waiting on the Register are excluded from the resident population and are mentioned in the movement of the population at the time of recognition of refugee status on their regularization.

Revisions are not applicable.
