What percentage of the people living in Châtelain are nationals of a non-Belgian EU-15 country?

Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis (BISA) - Did you know? - 10/07/2018

Answer: 43.86 %

This makes the Châtelain district (Brussels-Ixelles-Saint-Gilles) the area with the highest relative number of non-Belgian EU-15 residents of the Region on 1 January 2016 (The EU-15 without Belgium consist of The Netherlands, Luxemburg, Germany, France, Italy, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, The UK, Ireland, Austria, Greece, Spain and Portugal). The non-Belgian population of EU-15 nationality is mainly concentrated in the neighbourhoods of the south-eastern quadrant of the Region.

The top 5 also features the European Quarter (Brussels-Ixelles), Louise Longue Haie (Brussels-Ixelles), Brugmann-Lepoutre (Brussels, Forest, Ixelles) and Ixelles Ponds (Brussels-Ixelles). The highest proportion of non-Belgian nationals of one of the EU-15 States, is thus concentrated around the European institutions and Avenue Louise.

The area with the smaller proportion of residents with a non-Belgian EU-15 nationality  is the “Villas van Ganshoren”, with 5.10 %.
