Employment volume of SMEs in Belgium in FTE 2016-2019

SMEs were responsible for more than half of all employment in Belgium in 2019. This was based on social security figures and the location of the head offices of the companies. The source notes, however, that due to Belgium's federal structure the figures may be "distorted", as the source's methodology implies that all personnel is allocated to this head office, even though people may not necessarily work there.
