25/07/2019 - Update on the Population and Public Finances themes

In July, two themes were updated on the BISA website

In the Population theme, the statistics as of 1 January 2019 have been added to Annual change. The figures for 1994, 1995, 1996 and 2008 have been reviewed. Movement of the population has also been updated with data for 2018, except the internal migrations by origin and destination (municipality, Brussels-Capital Region) and the international migrations according to the nationality of the migrant. The stock for 2008 (that is, the population as of 1 January 2008) and migrations for 2010 have also been revised.

The 2010–2017 figures for the Public Financesfinances of the Brussels municipalities theme have been revised following the change in the calculation of municipal debt by Bruxelles Pouvoirs Locaux, in order to harmonise debt calculation for CPAS (Public centres for social welfare) and municipalities. Presently, debt includes debts of more than one year and the “reimbursement” of financial debts of one year or more.
