A combo of words, pictures, and numbers : the infographic by contains 75 stats about Brussels. Funny, random, and a different way to look at the city.

Our challenge was to illustrate some statistics about Brussels. And we ended up learning some interesting trivia…

After the principal nationalities in Brussels, you will learn that 51 babies are born everyday in our capital. They contribute to the population of under 18 year olds which makes up 27 out of every 100 residents. A stat that equals the number of cats…

What would Brussels be without its public transportation that serves the masses of commuters. In 2013, all of the STIB vehicles combined travelled 40,700,000 kilometers or 50 round trips to the moon.  

Brussels animal life is not constrained to the 311,751 cats. Three species of reptiles call the Brussels Region home.
