The National Statistical Institute presents to the users of statistical information the printed publication Regions and Districts in the Republic of Bulgaria 2002 - 2006. The issue is bilingual (Bulgarian/English) and contains data about the demographic, social, economic and environmental state of the Bulgarian districts and planning regions for the period 2002 - 2006. Regarding the districts (to a certain extent comparable with the former 'okrazi') the publication is a continuation of the NSI publication for the period 1997 - 2001. Bulgaria's planning regions were created in 2000. Since 2005 according to the agreements with Eurostat Bulgaria introduced two territorial units that are considered comparable to level 1 units of the European nomenclature of territorial units for statistics (NUTS).
The most important indicators have been chosen in order to reveal the profile and specifics of the different territorial units. Part of the data has already appeared in some other thematic NSI's publications, but here they are systemized in territorial aspect.
The information given is diverse and considering the publication's limited volume covers the diversity of the social and economic development of the country to an optimal extent. In order to interpret the indicators and data correctly users are advised to take into consideration the notes and links to other publications quoted in the methodological notes.
Taking into account the increasing demand for analyses of the regional disparities and in order to develop a consistent regional policy according to the European requirements, NSI aims to regularly supply all the interested institutions with regional information. For the time between five-year publications like this, users can use the relevant NSI electronic publications. If data on a lower territorial level (municipalities) are needed, publications of the 28 regional statistical offices can be used.
