Statistics on children of school-going age and schools in the Brussels-Capital Region

schools banner

Following the growth of its population, the Brussels-Capital Region is currently witnessing a surge in the number of children of school age.

Because education is a community competence, BISA provides statistics that combine data from both the Flemish Community and the French Community: student population, number of schools… BISA also provides student population data for education not provided by the communities.

BISA publications on these themes are available below.
