Discover the latest edition of Focus, which has just been published by the BISA (Brussels Institute for Statistics and Analysis)

As 2020 begins, BISA takes a look at 2019 through the Demographic Barometer of the Brussels-Capital Region.

In 2018, the population of Brussels increased by 9,800 inhabitants to exceed 1.2 million inhabitants on January 1, 2019. The region has never been so populated and its population has been increasing since 1996! How can we explain this growth? To answer this question, the Demographic barometer analyses the evolution of mortality, natality and migration in the Brussels-Capital Region.

2019 was also the year of the region's 30th anniversary. For this occasion, the demographic barometer paints a picture of the evolution of its population since 1989.
