Discover the nationalities

All people living in Belgium do not necessarily have the Belgian nationality. If you want to know what the foreign nationalities of the inhabitants in your municipality are: you’re in the right place.

What will you learn in this topic?

How many inhabitants in your municipality have a nationality other than the Belgian nationality? What is the proportion of these inhabitants? What is their nationality?

Number of inhabitants with a foreign nationality

The table below shows the breakdown of the inhabitants in your municipality in the reference year according to their Belgian or foreign nationality.

Does your municipality have many or few inhabitants with a foreign nationality compared to the total population?

To answer this question, we have to calculate the proportion of inhabitants with a foreign nationality compared to the total population.

What is the proportion of inhabitants with a foreign nationality among all the inhabitants in your municipality?

To calculate this proportion, divide the number of inhabitants with a foreign nationality by the total number of inhabitants in your municipality.

Foreign nationalities

We have seen that in your municipality, there are inhabitants with a foreign nationality. But what are the most common nationalities of these inhabitants?

The table below shows the breakdown of the inhabitants in your municipality according to their nationality.

The inhabitants with a foreign nationality come from different countries.

These countries are not all represented in this table.

A country only appears in the table if the number of inhabitants with the nationality of that country accounts for more than 1% of the inhabitants with a foreign nationality. If this is not the case, the numbers of inhabitants are added up and go to the category ‘other countries’.

From this table, you can determine which country is the most represented among the foreign nationalities in your municipality.

You can also calculate the proportion of each of these foreign nationalities in relation to the total population of the municipality or in relation to all foreign nationalities.
