General Statistics  

The Statistical bulletin, with a mine of financial and economic information, is published on a quarterly basis. Statistics produced by the National Bank more frequently than every three months are compiled into a monthly update. The National Bank also allows you to have free access to a wider offer and longer series than in the Statistical Bulletin via “NBB.Stat” on its website. 

At the end of each week, the National Bank releases an updated collection (the most recent past estimates and the latest available forecasts for the future) of the main Belgian economic and financial variables (gross domestic product and economic activity, prices, employment, public finance, foreign trade, interest rates and exchange rates).
