20/12/2018 - Figures: updates and new items

This month, five themes were been updated with the latest available figures

In December, new tables were added to the “Household income and expenditure”, “Labour market” and “Land-use planning and real estate” themes, and four themes were updated. Check them out!

NEW

New tables on after-tax income have been added to the Fiscal statistics section of the “Household income and expenditure” theme. They are available for the years 2005 to 2016.

Under the “Labour market” theme, a new table was added under Domestic employment showing the regional distribution of Employment in European and international institutions in Belgium. These figures are available for the years 2016-2017. The statistics for the Flemish and Walloon region will henceforth also be available, in addition to those for the Brussels Capital Region.

New statistics on Real estate sales are now available under the “Land-use planning and real estate” theme for 2010 to 2017. Calculated on the basis of the type of sale, these statistics present the median sales price for:

  • houses (semi-detached or detached),
  • townhouses,
  • apartments.


Given that the type of property is based on the deed of sale, it is updated by the notary each time the property is sold, unlike the type of property that is recorded in the land registry (former methodology). Real estate sales calculated on the basis of the type entered in the land registry continue to be published.

 

UPDATES

Under the ‘Labour market’ theme, the tables for International employment in the Brussels Capital Region were updated with the figures for 2017. The 2016 figures have been revised. The tables representing the Regional employment dynamics were also updated with the statistics for 2016-2017.

The 2017 figures for Export and Import of goods are now available in the “Economy” theme.

The Real estate sales under the “Land-use planning and real estate” theme were updated with:

  • the publication of the 2017 statistics for Sales (former methodology – based on the type of property recorded in the land registry) and the revision of the figures for 2005 to 2016;
  • the 2017 figures on Sales of Citydev.brussels homes and revised figures for 1991-2016.


Under the theme of “Health”, the tables covering the Total number of new cases of cancer by age group and by the most frequent primary site were updated with the figures for 2016.
