Belgium: The number of births per 1000 people, per year: For that indicator, The World Bank provides data for Belgium from 1960 to 2016. The average value for Belgium during that period was 12.72 births per 1000 people with a minumum of 10.8 births per 1000 people in 2015 and a maximum of 17.3 births per 1000 people in 1961. See the global rankings for that indicator or use the country comparator to compare trends over time.
Definition: Crude birth rate indicates the number of live births occurring during the year, per 1,000 population estimated at midyear. Subtracting the crude death rate from the crude birth rate provides the rate of natural increase, which is equal to the rate of population change in the absence of migration.
