Perspectives démographiques 2015-2060 - Population, ménages et quotients de mortalité prospectifs
Demografische vooruitzichten 2015-2060 - Bevolking, huishoudens en prospectieve sterftequotiënten [ EFPOP1560 - ]

The Federal Planning Bureau and Statistics Belgium have updated their demographic projections. Belgium’s population should grow by about 85,000 inhabitants both in 2016 and 2017. Half of this growth is due to the additional flow of refugees. However important, this population increase is not exceptional; such increases have already been recorded in recent years, for example between 2007 and 2011. Over the long term, the average population growth should reach 40,000 inhabitants a year between 2020 and 2060 (against 50,000 inhabitants over the 1991-2014 period).
