Figures valid on 1 January 2015 show that 11,190,845 people were legally registered as living in the country, but the sexes are not in balance. There are presently around 200,000 more women in Belgium than men.
The population of Flanders works out at 6.5 million; Wallonia 3.5 million and Brussels 1.2 million.
The figures reveal that the average Belgian is old, 41 years old, though there is massive difference between municipalities. The eight municipalities with the oldest populations are all located on the coast. Koksijde with inhabitants with an average age of 52 has the oldest population.
However, the oldest Belgian lives in Antwerp and is 116.
Municipalities with the youngest populations are located in central Belgium. Seven of the top ten with youngest populations are in Brussels. Sint-Joost has the youngest average population in the land: 33 years.
