  • Complementary indicators to GDP, 2020 [05/02/2020]

    This report presents the annual update of a set of indicators complementary to GDP. These indicators cover the period from 1990 to 2018, depending on the availability of the data. The Act of 14 March 2014, which complements the Act of 21 December 1994 establishing social and diverse provisions with a set of complementary indicators to measure the quality of life, human development, social progress and the sustainability of our economy, entrusts the National Accounts Institute with the development of this set of indicators and assigns this mission to the Federal Planning Bureau.

  • Inégalités de bien-être en Belgique - Construction de onze indicateurs composites pour mesurer le bien-être de différentes catégories de la population
    Ongelijkheden op het gebied van welzijn in België - opbouw van elf composiete indicatoren om het welzijn van verschillende bevolkingscategorieën te meten. [12/02/2019]

    This Working paper proposes eleven new composite indicators to measure changes in well-being for women, men, four age groups and five income categories (quintiles) in Belgium. They were constructed using a statistical analysis of the drivers of well-being specific to these population groups. These indicators are complementary to the indicator Well-being here and now that measures the average development in well-being in Belgium.

  • Mesurer le bien-être en Belgique - Construction d’un indicateur composite pour mesurer le bien-être actuel des Belges
    Het welzijn in België meten - Opbouw van een composiete indicator om het huidige welzijn van de Belgen te meten [19/02/2018]

    This Working Paper proposes an indicator to measure the development in well-being in Belgium. It was built from a statistical analysis of the determinants of well-being in Belgium. It has the advantage of being transparent, divisible and easy to communicate. The analysis shows that the well-being of Belgians generally decreased between 2005 and 2016. This decrease is mainly due to a deterioration in the health of Belgians.

  • What matters to Belgians ? Analysis of the determinants of individual well-being in Belgium  [02/06/2017]

    This Working Paper analyses the determinants of individual well-being in Belgium, using data from the EU-SILC survey. The analysis shows that on average health, both mental and physical, is the key determinant of well-being for Belgians. Enjoying sufficient income to access what is regarded as the prevailing standard of living in Belgium, having a job and being surrounded by loved ones also have a significant and positive impact on well-being. Besides these results for “average” Belgians, the analysis of different sub-groups highlights that these determinants are not of equal importance to all Belgians. These results contribute to the FPB’s work on the search for indicators complementary to GDP.
