3 December, International Day of Persons with Disabilities

In Belgium, 8% of the population aged between 15 and 64 is severely limited in its daily activities because of a disability or long-standing health problems. This limitation is slightly more prevalent among women. This is what emerged from the figures of Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, based on the Labour Force Survey of 2020.

Older people are over-represented among the severely limited: 56% of them are aged 50 to 64 while they account for only 31% of the total population studied.
