Résumé : Presents results of a questionnaire survey among Belgian students on how they perceive spatial variations in economic potential in Belgium. French-speaking students from the Brussels agglomeration appear to have a clearer impression of spatial variations in the country than their counterparts in Wallonia or Flanders. Perhaps this reflects a more accurate grasp of knowledge or a greater degree of self confidence about the economic well-being of the capital- city region.-H.Clout
