According to the provisional results for the monthly indicators based on the Labour Force Survey of Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, the employment rate of people aged 20-64 amounted to 71.4% in May 2022. The unemployment rate of people aged 15-64 was 5.6%.
The reported figures are provisional estimations based on a sample survey. They are based on an effective sample of about 7,800 persons (respondents) between 15 and 89 years old in May 2022. This represents about 3,700 respondents in Flanders, 3,100 in Wallonia and 1,000 in Brussels.
The results presented here are indicative monthly results and are subject to greater random fluctuations than the quarterly and annual results, because they are based on a twelfth of the annual sample.
