Reflets et perspectives de la vie économique, 2011, vol. L, issue 4, 13-29

Abstract: In this paper, the most relevant social indicators agreed upon at European Union (EU) level are used to briefly describe the performances of Belgium in fighting poverty and inequalities, and also to compare these performances with those of the other EU Member States. To fine-tune the description made of these Belgian performances, we bring into our analysis some national indicators which address important areas currently not covered by the EU set of indicators. Finally, we also portray the social situation in Belgium at a regional level within the limits allowed by the available data. JEL: I32
