To promote transparency and provide information, the Federal Planning Bureau regularly publishes the methods and results of its works. The publications are organised in different series, such as Outlooks, Working Papers and Planning Papers. Some reports can be consulted here, along with the Short Term Update newsletters that were published until 2015. You can search our publications by theme, publication type, author and year.
This report presents the annual update of a set of indicators complementary to GDP. These indicators cover the period from 1990 to 2019, depending on the availability of the data. In this report, a chapter is dedicated to mental health, with three new indicators, and on differences between women and men. This report updates the composite indicator to measure well-being 'Here and now' for Belgium and for 11 categories of population (by sex, age and income), as well as four composite indicators to measure the sustainability of well-being. This set will be completed in the forthcoming updates by composite indicators for the third and last dimension of sustainable development 'Elsewhere'.
