Demographic Situation in Bulgaria – State and Trends


  • Nikola Cholakov


The demographic situation in Bulgaria is analysed - declining birth rate, aging of the population, as well as demographic determinants of the socio-economic development. Comparisons with a number of EU countries are drawn and the main aspects in which the demographic factors could lead to significant disadvantages are studied: deficits in social security, insufficient employment of the work force and migration fluctuations, transfer of capitals and slowing down of the economic growth in developed countries, crisis in state budgets and the financial systems, etc.
