This database forms the statistical annex of the most recent medium-term outlook for the Belgian economy. It contains yearly figures for Belgium covering the period 1996-2024. The data are derived from the HERMES model.
Once a year, the FPB publishes a macrosectoral outlook over a period of six years. Since 2014, the FPB has also produced a brief provisional version of this outlook in March. This year the preliminary version was exceptionally advanced to mid-February and will be used as the reference scenario for the screening of the election manifestos.
The tables contain series on the international environment, GDP following the expenditure approach (in current prices, volume and deflators), the development of the overall wage bill in the market sector, the labour market and the sector accounts (households, corporations, general government and the rest of the world). The June version will comprise a more comprehensive set of tables, with a.o. the results by industry.
