Abstract
Belgium has a population of 10.5 million inhabitants, 8.7% of whom are of foreign origin (5.5% are citizens from the European Union, while 3.2% are of other nationalities). The average annual per capita income is €13.222. The tertiary sector accounts for about two-thirds of the Belgian economy, and this share is on the rise; it has risen from 63.7% in 2000 to 66.7% in the next 5 years. The industry sector and the construction sector together account for just over 20% of the economy; however, their share has decreased by almost 3%, the mirror image of the increase in the tertiary sector. The share of agriculture, which was already very small, continues to decline and has fallen to just below 1%. The overall unemployment rate in Belgium for the age group between 15 and 64 years (8.46%) is substantially lower than for the group between 15 and 24 years of age (21.16%). This is reflected in the employment rate: for the age group between 15 and 64 years, the employment rate is 60.33%; for the group between 15 and 24 years, it is 27.79%.
