Electoral districts and NUTS structure:
Data on NUTS 3 level is not available for Belgium. NUTS 3 correspond to the administrative arrondissements, however not to the electoral circonscriptions. For the parliamentary election of 1991 data is thus presented at NUTS 2 level (provinces). The province of Brabant in 1991 included the provinces of Vlaams Brabant, Brabant Wallon and Région de Bruxelles-Capitale. These units were constructed from the original data by aggragating as follows:
Vlaams Brabant: Halle (canton), Vilvorde (canton), Leuven (arrondissement)
Brabant Vallon: Nivelles (arrondissement)
Région de Bruxelles-Capitale: Bruxelles, Anderlecht, Ixelles, Molenbeek St. Jean, Saint Gilles, Saint Josse ten Noode, Schaerbeck, Uccle, Lennik, Asse, Meise (all cantons)  

The provinces correspond to the NUTS 2 units in all cases except from Région de Bruxelles-Capitale/ Brussels Hoofdstedelijk Gewest (BE10) and Prov. Vlaams Brabant (BE24).  In order to present data in accordance with the NUTS structure Halle-Vilvoorde (BE241) is thus in the current data set presented as part of the BE24 .
