Average readership per issue of daily newspapers in Belgium 2017-2019

Belgian newspaper circulation, either physically or digitally, was highest for Flemish newspapers in 2019. For example, a copy of Dutch-language daily newspaper De Standaard was read by roughly 490,000 people, more than twice the number of people reached by French-language daily La Dernière Heure/Les Sports. This should not come as a surprise as Flanders overall has a larger population than Wallonia.
