Statbel publishes today the provisional monthly results of the statistics on births.
The first provisional figures show that in August 2022, 9,834 babies were born in Belgium: 5,524 in Flanders, 3,128 in Wallonia and 1,182 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. This will have to wait until the final publication of the population figures on 1 January 2023 mid-2023.
