8,691 births in December

Statbel publishes today the provisional monthly results of the statistics on births.

The first provisional figures show that in December 2023, 8,691 babies were born in Belgium: 4,848 in Flanders, 2,713 in Wallonia and 1,130 in the Brussels-Capital Region.

These results were calculated based on Demobel, Statbel’s demographic database (source: National Register).

As these figures are provisional, it is not yet possible to draw any clear conclusions, either on a monthly or on an annual basis.

For that, we will have to wait for the final publication of population figures on 1 January 2024 mid-2024.
