Guide to Bulgarian Statistical Publications

Angela Cannon
Reference Specialist


Introduction

This guide is intended to be an introduction to statistical publications published in Bulgaria about Bulgaria. It is not meant to be comprehensive, for it is impossible to identify and list every possible source of statistics for Bulgaria, rather it presents the most important sources based on the collections of the Library of Congress (LC). All titles are annotated for content and entries provide bibliographic citations, subject headings, links to the records in the LC online catalog and holdings for LC. Most annotations are for titles that we examined in person, but we also included some important census publications that are lacking from the LC collections, but with a note that they are not held.

The guide was developed as a result of a request from the reference staff at the Slavic Reference Service (SRS) External link of the University of Illinois.

What does this guide include? It covers materials published from 1878 through the present day. 1878 marks the date when Bulgaria achieved semi-independence from the Ottoman Empire. . For statistical sources from the Ottoman period, see the guide External link produced by International and Area Studies Library of the University of Illinois. Most publications in the guide are in Bulgarian. Those that are bilingual are noted as such in the annotations. The subjects of annotated publications include censuses, demography, agriculture, data on specific regions of Bulgaria, and major general resources for Bulgarian statistics.

It does not include materials on economics, business or banking, for the scope of the guide would become unwieldy. It also does not discuss Bulgarian publications that cover statistics of other nations or publications from other countries about Bulgaria. The organization of the guide is presented in the table of contents above. Within each section titles are presented in chronological order by publication date and/or dates of coverage.

The main source of statistical data for the nineteenth through the twenty first centuries has been the national statistical agency located in Sofiia. It was founded in 1880 under the name Statistiko-organizatsionno otdelenie kum Ministerstvoto na finansite and has undergone several name changes, such as Statistichesko biuro and Tsentralnoto statistichesko upravlenie, but since 1991 has been called Natsionalen statisticheski institut External link or National Statistical Institute. Its responsibilites include gathering, analyzing and disseminating statistical data on the Bulgarian economy, culture, and daily life, including conducting censuses for population and housing. In the past it also conducted agricultural censuses, but today that responsibility belongs to the Ministry of Agriculture and Food. See the annotation below on the Natsionalen statisticheski institut for more details, as well as the section on agricultural statistics for more on the Ministry of Agriculture and Food.

Bulgaria joined the European Union in 2007 and since that time some of its statistical data can be located in EU statistical sources issued by the Statistical Office of the European Union (EurostatExternal link. (This guide will not annotate sources for EU statistics). Data from Bulgaria when it was a candidate country for the EU appears in some publications even before 2007.

No attempt has been made to interpret accuracy of statistics publishing during the communist era or any other era in Bulgarian history. We simply present the publications and leave interpretation up to the user.

This guide is predominantly about printed materials, for very few electronic sources for Bulgarian statistics exist until the early 2000s. Not many sources from 1878-1999 have been digitized, and, most of those that are digitized are restricted from general view, because they are still under copyright protection. We searched all titles mentioned in this guide in the two largest digital libraries, Google Books External link and Hathi Trust External link. When full-text is available, links are provided. Beginning in the early 2000s, the Natsionalen statisticheski institut has made many sources of Bulgarian statistics available in electronic form on its website. When relevant, those e-sources are annotated below.

One of the first sources to consult for all kinds of statistics is the statistical yearbook [Statisticheski godishnik] for the pre-communist or communist/post-communist eras. Yearbooks have been published in Bulgaria for almost every year since 1909. They cover many subject areas. If this source does not provide enough information, then one should look for more specialized sources.

There are a number of important call number ranges for Bulgarian statistical publications such as HA1621-1628 (HA = Statistics), HB3627-3628 (HB = Economics), HD2041 (HD = Land, Agriculture, Industry, Labor), HG3221-3226 (HG = Finance), but these are not the only ones, for statistical compilations exist on many subjects and are often found under the call numbers for the subjects. For example, the statistical volumes on libraries appear under Z (Bibliography and Library Science). Browsing the online catalog via a call number search can be useful to see the whole range of available titles.

Also try searching library online catalogs or WorldCat using subject headings such as Bulgaria -- Population -- Statistics or Public health -- Bulgaria -- Statistics or Bulgaria -- Census. The pattern for the subject headings usually includes the words "Bulgaria" and "statistics" and one may add more specific subjects, such as Public health or housing, etc.

Online Resources

Natsionalen statisticheski institut / National Statistical Institute http://www.nsi.bg External link
The website of the Natsionalen statistichen institut (NSI) in Sofiia is an extremely rich resource for recent statistical information. It not only serves as a clearinghouse for data and questions of statistical research, it also provides full-text of many of its publications. For researchers seeking Bulgarian data produced in the past ten years or so, this is the first place to look. For some data it can be the only source, for there is no library in the United States that has a complete collection of all NSI publications in print. In fact, in 2010 NSI ceased printing paper versions of many of its titles and began producing them exclusively in digital format, either as files downloadable from its website or as CD-ROMs. When pdfs are available for full-text, the URLs are provided below in the annotations of the various publications.

The website appears to be almost completely bilingual with Bulgarian and English, with only a few differences. Many of its publications are also bilingual with Bulgarian and English, but not all. Notable exceptions are some of the regional titles and the most recent census publications.

There are menus at the top of the screen and along the left side to access various kinds of information. To see a list of publications by broad category use the tab at the top called "Produkti i uslugi" or "Products and Services." One can also find publications on more specific subjects by using the side bar. Each subject page has four tabs at the top, one of which is for publications. Other tabs are for press releases, data, and methodology. For some subjects, if there are no publications specific to that topic, the site guides the user to the main statistical yearbook which includes relevant data. Most data is presented as an html page or as a downloadable Excel spreadsheet. E-publications are usually in pdf format.

The subjects on the side bar are: Agriculture, Business Surveys, Construction, Crisis Events, Culture, Domestic Trade, Accomodation and Food Service Activities, Education and Lifelong Learning, Energy, Environment, European Comparison Program, Financial Statistics, Foreign Trade, Government Finance Statistics, Gross Domestic Product, Gross National Income, Health, Households Income and Expenditure, Housing, Industry, Inflation and Consumer Price Indices, Information Society, Investments, Justice, Labor Market, Population, R&D and Innovations, Services, Short-tem Business Statistics, Social Inclusion and Living Conditions, Social Protection, Statistics of Enterprises, Structural Business Statistics, Sustainable Development, Tourism, and Transport and Communications.

Besides compiling and disseminating statistics on the topics listed above, the NSI also conducts the decennial Bulgarian censuses for population and housing. The final results and full-text of almost all of the publications for the 2011 census are available on the site. Some results are also available for the 2001 census. These publications are annotated below in the section for censuses with appropriate links to the NSI website.
CD-ROMs from the National Statistical Institute

The NSI issues many of its publications in this format. These titles will be annotated below under the appropriate categories.

ISI Emerging Markets
New York: Internet Securities, Inc.
Subscription database available onsite at the Library of Congress

This database provides content related to business and investment of countries with emerging markets, including Bulgaria. Although this guide is not focused on business or financial statistics, the Emerging Markets database includes many other kinds of statistics that could inform an investment decision. For example, there are statistics on demography, agriculture, national debt, transportation, housing, and tourism, among others. The database can be searched using keywords or by using various drop down menus. In addition, clicking in the search box produces an advanced screen for additional searching options. For a listing of sources of materials included in the database, click on Bulgaria as the country, and then select Sources. All of the publication sources are listed by category. There used to be a category devoted to statistics, but now that material is scattered among other categories. This database should be one of the first places to search for recent Bulgarian statistical data, if one's institution has a subscription.

Bibliographies of Bulgarian Statistical Materials

There is no good, comprehensive guide or even bibliography to Bulgarian statistical materials. All of the ones described below may be used to piece together the situation, but even then, there are gaps in coverage of various types of materials.

Bibliografiia na bulgarskata statisticheska literatura 1878-1980.
Eds. Liuba Dzherova et al.
Sofiia: Komitet po edinna sistema za sotsialna informatsiia pri Ministerkiia suvet, 1981. 2 v. in 1. 303 p.

Subjects: Bulgaria --Statistics --Bibliography.
LC Call Number: Z7554.B8 B52 European Reading Room Reference -- Bulgaria
Note: Part 1. previously published as: Bibliografiia na bulgarskata statisticheska literatura, 1878-1960 / Liuba Dzherova, 1961.

This book is a bibliography of Bulgarian statistical publications, including works about statistics as well. The items are grouped by subject. Unfortunately, there are only citations, not annotations to give a better idea of what the works might contain. When statistical serials are included, each volume is listed with its page count and the time period of coverage for the issue. The arrangement of the materials can be confusing, because the first half of the book is republished information from the 1961 volume, Bibliografiia na bulgarskata statisticheska literatura, 1878-1960, including the indexes to those listings located in the middle of the book. Later publications covering 1960-1980 appear in the second half of the book with separate indexes at the back, so for one topic the user needs to look in both sections of the bibliography. The bibliography does not include foreign language statistical publications produced in Bulgaria, statistical publications produced by political parties with political themes, or certain governmental publications such as annual state budgets, but it does include citations for articles on various statistical topics.

Publikatsii, 1985-1990 = Publications, 1985-1990.

Sofiia: Natsionalen statisticheski institut: Programno-tselevi kolektiv po edinna sistema za sotsialno-demografska statistika (Team for the Establishment of an Integrated Socio-Demographic Statistics System), 1990. 94 p.

Subjects: Bulgaria --Population --Statistics --Bibliography --Catalogs; Bulgaria --Census, 1985 --Bibliography --Catalogs.
LC Call Number: Z7554.B9 B69 1990 European Reading Room Reference -- Bulgaria
Covering only 1985-1990, this bibliography includes mostly census publications. The arrangement is by type of material: statistics, analytical materials, official reports, and reports given at conferences. Each entry contains bibliographic data and an annotation in three languages: Bulgarian, Russian, and English. There are no indexes, but the bibliography is small enough that it is simple to peruse.

Opis na zakonitie, pravilnitsitie, sbornitsitie i pr., koito se namirat za prodan v Durzhavnata Pechatnitsa
Sofiia: Durzhavna pechatnitsa
Dates of Publication:

Subjects: Government publications -- Bulgaria -- Bibliography
LC Call Number: Z2895.S64 [1933] + Z2895.B93 [1908, 1925, 1927]
LC Has: 1908, 1925, 1927, 1933
This is a list of publications produced by the State Publishing House in Bulgaria. It is basically an advertisement that has been saved and bound. One of them was published as an appendix to Durzhaven vestnik, the official legal gazette. The publications are listed by sponsoring ministry without descriptions. Many of the publications are for government documents, but there are statistical materials listed under some of them such as the Ministry of Finances and the Statistical Office.

List of the serial publications of foreign governments, 1815-1931
New York: H.W. Wilson Company, 1932. 720 p.
LCCN: http://lccn.loc.gov/32031991
Subjects: Government publications --Bibliography; Periodicals --Bibliography --Union lists
LC Call Number: Z7164.G7 L7
Although this is a general bibliography of foreign government serials in U.S. libraries, it has information about Bulgarian statistical serials that is not available in the above mentioned publications and can be used to provide one part of the whole picture of Bulgarian statistical publications. Some of the information is inaccurate regarding publication dates.

Administrative-Territorial Divisions in Bulgaria

Many of the Bulgarian statistical publications, especially the census materials, have data based on region or city, but these numbers are not necessarily straightforward because what territory constituted a particular region has changed over the years due to territorial losses and gains after wars, renaming, administrative restructuring, and population growth. There are several handy publications that provide the administrative-territorial divisions of Bulgaria from the oblast/okrug level down to the selo/grad or village/city level. They are described below in the section entitled Publications on Place Names. With all of these titles one can look up a locality and find out under which administrative division it falls. Given immediately below are the oblast/okrug (plural oblasti/okruzi) levels and their okolii (singular okoliia) or obshtini (singular obshtina) for various eras, but due to space constraints, not every historical time period and not every village, town, and city in Bulgaria can be included in this guide. The books in this section on administrative-territorial divisions should be consulted for specific locales in specific eras.

At times in Bulgaria's history, the largest administrative division was an oblast. At other times the okrug was the largest division. It seems that when both are used together, oblasti are larger than okruzi and the word can be translated in various ways, but "provinces" or "regions" are common. Okruzi seem to be smaller units than oblasti, but often okruzi are the largest units given in the census publications. The word is frequently translated as "districts," "provinces," or "regions." Okolii are units in between okruzi and obshtini and are used in the older censuses, also translated as "districts." Obshtini are even smaller units than okruzi and okolii and are often translated as "communities" or "municipalities." Sometimes the statistical publications also provide data based on gradove or "cities/towns" and sela or "villages." Because of the difficulty with precise translation, the Bulgarian words are used in this guide. All of the divisions provided below (only the two largest in use in that year) are taken from the census publications for the dates given, with the exception of 1942. Some of the 1885 divisions are not given since LC lacks the volumes to verify the locales.

1942 Oblasti and okolii

This data is not extracted from a census, but rather from the 1942 Statisticheski godishnik [Statistical Yearbook] [LINK]. It is included here, because for a few years during World War II (1941-1944), Bulgaria occupied territory of Macedonia and parts of Serbia and Greece. Both Serbia and Macedonia at the time had been part of Yugoslavia. During this era, statistics on various places not currently in Bulgaria can be found in some Bulgarian statistical publications.

These volumes could prove very useful for students interested in the history of Bulgaria, for they list the populated places in Bulgaria and their population figures by okrug/oblast, okoliia and obshtina based on the census numbers and names of districts used in the censuses. This title helps to trace the changes in the names of the districts over the decades. One of these volumes was published for almost every census up to 1950, and although LC has many of them, they are all cataloged under different call numbers.

The five titles listed directly above are all administrative territorial dictionaries. They are not annotated separately because they all provide the same sort of information -- the divisions of Bulgaria from the oblast, then obshtina, then selo/grad level. One can work from either direction, looking up a town and finding out what oblast and obshtina to which it belongs, or looking up an oblast and find out what obshtini and sela/gradove fall under it.


Labor Classification

This section identifies several occupation classification manuals. The purpose of these manuals is to define occupations in a standard way that enables international comparison and sharing of data. They are frequently produced by statistical agencies and may be associated with censuses, which is why they are included in this guide. Four for Bulgaria are listed below, but not annotated.

Censuses and Other Demographic Publications

The Bulgarian government conducted population censuses for the following years: 1881 (partial -- Principality only), 1885 (partial -- Eastern Rumelia only), 1888, 1893, 1900, 1905, 1910, 1920, 1926, 1934, 1946, 1956, 1965, 1975, 1985, 1992, 2001, 2011. The next Bulgarian census is scheduled for 2021. Census publications are described below in date order. Included are population, housing and agricultural census publications [Bulgarian censuses of industry are not discussed in this guide]. These publications are only statistical in nature. They cannot be used by genealogists to find family members or names, for that kind of data was not published by the Bulgarians. In general, publications of preliminary results are listed even if final results are available for historical comparisons and in case administrative information was included in the preliminary publications that did not get reproduced in the final publications.

In addition to substantial print holdings at LC, many of the publications of the Bulgarian censuses appear on the microfilm set International Population Census Publications, including some that LC does not hold in print. The set is divided into several parts, Series I: 1945-1967 (2 reels for Bulgaria); Series II: Pre-1945 (2 reels for Bulgaria); Series III: Post-1967 (12 reels for Bulgaria). LC's call number for this set is Microfilm (o) 83/328 and it is held in the Microform Reading Room. For Bulgaria LC holds Series I and II (all reels), but two reels only from Series III. LC did not acquire all reels in Series III, because LC holds those publications in print instead. The presence of a publication in this set is indicated in the individual descriptions below in the "Notes" field. Reel or series numbers are not necessary to request the materials at LC, for the publications are shelved by region and then by country.

URLs for electronic versions of census publications are provided when available. To learn more about general sources or international compilations of census data, see Locating Census Data at the Library of Congress, compiled by the LC Business Reference Services.


Census Publications

1881 - Predvaritelni rezultati ot prebroiavaneto naselenieto na 1 ianvarii 1881 g. = Résultats préliminaires du recensement de la population du 1/13 janvier 1881.
Sofiia: Statistichesko biuro, 1881. 50 p.
LCCN: http://lccn.loc.gov/09022139
Subjects: Bulgaria --Census, 1881
LC Call Number: HA1622.B5 1881a
Note: Included in the microfilm set International Population Census Publications
Notable as the first Bulgarian census publication ever produced, it presents the preliminary data from the 1881 census. The 1881 census covered only part of today's Bulgaria (essentially the northern part). The data collected was limited in scope, with population figures for gender by okrug, okoliia, and obshtina and figures for households and dwellings. The publication is bilingual in French and Bulgaria. Unfortunately, LC's paper copy of this work has been damaged, so the film copy is the only one available.

LC Call Number: HA1622.B5 1881b
Anticipating that the publication of the full results of the census would take some time, this work was issued in the interim. It is basically a few tables listing the most important data such as the number of people by age and gender, by birthplace (the Kingdom of Bulgaria vs. Thrace or Macedonia), by religion, and native language. LC's volume is in extremely poor condition. It is bilingual in French and Bulgarian.

Vital and Other Demographic Statistics

This section includes resources on population and vital statistics that are not census publications. Not all topics have received consistent coverage over the years in Bulgarian statistical publications, so one must sometimes resort to the census publications or to the Statisticheski godishnik [Statistical Yearbook] for figures.

Compiled by one of Bulgaria's most renowned bibliographers, Nikola Mikhov (1877-1962), this 5-volume catalog is hard to categorize. It is an annotated bibliography of publications about population in Bulgaria and Turkey, and at the same time it is a source for the data, since Mikhov extracted relevant statistics from the sources cited and republished them in his catalog. Indexes of personal names and geographic and ethnographic terms appear in every volume. Each volume presents works in a particular language or group of languages. The first three volumes contain citations to French, German and English sources, while the fourth volume focuses on maps and other iconographic materials. Volume V has only selected Russian-language sources. Mikhov intended to continue his work on Russian sources by visiting Russian libraries, but ill-health prevented any further research. Mikhov compiled his bibliographies based on the collections of major libraries in Germany, France, Switzerland and other countries of Western Europe. He concentrated on Bulgarica in western European languages, as Bulgarian libraries at the time did not have research-level collections of foreign works and he knew these materials needed to be brought to the attention of Bulgarian scholars. Bulgarian language publications are not included. The over 3000 entries for both article and books are organized alphabetically by main entry.

Marriages, divorces, births and deaths are the main topics covered in this work. Published since 1889 with annual volumes covering every year since 1881 and a few combination volumes such as 1913-1917 and 1918-1920, this work provides essential vital statistics for Bulgaria for over a half century. This publication has undergone many minor title changes over the years, not all of which are listed above. Beginning with the volumes for 1896 through 1912 there were two volumes per year, one listing data by okrug and okoliia and the other by towns and villages (naseleni mesta). Some of the figures are given by religion: Greek Orthodox, Muslim, Jewish, Armeno-Grigorian, Catholic, Protestant. Some of the volumes have tables for cause of death. This title is printed in French and Bulgarian.

Published for only three years, this title complements the one listed above, Dvizhenie na naselenieto v Bulgarskoto kniazhestvo. It lists births, deaths, and marriages for the same time period covered in the title above, but it puts all the data into one chart, while the above title has separate sections for each. A scholar interested in this time period should use both publications since the numbers themselves, not just the presentation, are slightly different. The 1893 volume of this title also has a unique feature in that it lists all marriages occurring in Bulgaria from April 4-11, 1893, by locality and it gives the names of the couples as well as their religion, occupation, and literacy status. This is the only demographic publication described in this guide with names of individuals. The 1893 volume commemorates the marriage of the tsar in April 1893 to Mariia-Luiza with biographies and portraits of both and fold-out genealogical charts for the tsar and his bride. The publication is in both Bulgarian and French.

This source is interesting because as part of its prognosis it discusses phenomena such as Turkish migration out of Bulgaria and religion by region. Religion as a category had been eliminated from the Bulgarian censuses after the 1934 census and was reinstated only with the 1992 census. This publication dates from the time of the reintroduction.

Note: The compiler did not examine every issue of every volume because many were in fragile condition; LC holds volumes for most years, but it is possible that scattered issues may be missing from the bound volumes; Also shelved under the call number J7.T3 are separately bound indexes for 1930/1931, 1931/1932, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1941; Shelved under the call number LAW KB3043.A7 are Obiavlenie, a supplement to Durzhaven vestnik, for 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911; Shelved under J7.T32 are Obiavlenie for 1896-1911, 1914; For 1963-1970, the annual indexes are bound at the front of each volume; The bibliographic record for 1963-1970 shows the title Izvestiia, but Durzhaven vestnik is the title on the shelves; Shelved under call number LAW KB3001.A1 is an index for 1924-1927
Durzhaven vestnik is the official legal gazette for Bulgaria and it has been published since 1879. Although this title is known for publishing law and legal announcements, it is also a regular publisher of government produced statistics on an array of subjects such as railroads, the state budget, libraries, trade, and banks, among others. The problem with using Durzhaven vestnik as a source for statistics is the spotty indexing. For many years there is an index by governmental ministry which is somewhat helpful, but it is not perfect. Much of the numerical data in the gazette was printed in separate volumes, but since long runs of Bulgarian statistical publications are not widely available in U.S. libraries, this source may be used, in particular when a year of interest is known.

As the main statistical annual for the Kindgom of Bulgaria, it is the first place to start looking for statistical data from Bulgaria. For the earlier years of publication the information is divided into the following major sections: Territory and Population, Economic Life, Political and Cultural Life. Territory and Population covers geography and borders of Bulgaria, meteorology, population, changes of population such as marriages and deaths, emigration to America (first few years only), religion, and the makeup of the military. Economic Life contains agriculture, industry, commerce, prices, money and banking, data for the Bulgarian National Bank and the Bulgarian Agricultural Bank, postal, railroad, sea navigation, telephone and telegraph data. Political and Cultural Life contains data on state and local finances, elections, civil service and the army, education, the arts, justice, medicine, accidents, and professional organizations such as unions. Later years arrange the data under 23 different categories: geography and borders, meteorology, population, changes in the population, public health, natural resources, agriculture and animal husbandry, industry and labor, dwellings and public works, transport and communication, real estate, foreign trade, prices and consumption, money and credit, cooperatives and stock associations, finances, social security, education, literature and cultural institutions, social organization and public assistance, religion, justice, and suicides. The kinds of information provided can change over the years. For example, in the early volumes there is little criminal and prison data, but it increases in later volumes.

An appendix provides some basic data about other world countries for comparison with Bulgaria, the entries for which are printed in bold type. Although each annual is for a specific year, they all contain earlier data, thus the first one for 1909 has some figures going back to 1881. An index to sources used in the compilation and both a brief and detailed table of contents are added features. Some volumes also have a list of publications produced by the Glavna direktsiia na statistikata. The entire volume is bilingual in both French and Bulgarian throughout its publishing run. Some volumes contain photographs of the tsar and tsaritsa, while the 1923/1924 volume has a fold out color map showing the new borders of the country.

As the main statistical annual for Bulgaria, it is the first place to start looking for statistical data from Bulgaria. It is a continuation of Statisticheski godishnik na Tsarstvo Bulgariia which ceased in 1942. The first few volumes are in both French and Bulgarian, then it becomes solely Bulgarian until the early 1990s, when both Bulgarian and English are provided. The data is divided into the following sections: meteorology, population, public health, natural resources, animal husbandry, labor, housing, transport and communications, real estate, foreign trade, consumption, money and credit, cooperatives, finances, social security, education, literature and culture, public institutions, church, justice, and suicides. There is some variation in the subjects over the years. There are methodological notes and a list of sources at the end of only some volumes. The oblasti listed in the early volumes are Burgas, Varna, Vratsa, Gorna Dzhumaia, Pleven, Plovdiv, Ruse, Sofiia, and Stara Zagora. Later these change to Blagoevgrad, Burgas, Varna, Veliko Turnovo, Vidin, Vratsa, Gabrovo, Kolarovgrad, Kurdzhali, Kiustendil, Lovech, Mikhailovgrad, Pazardzhik, Pernik, Pleven, Plovdiv, Razgrad, Ruse, Silistra, Sliven, Smolian, Sofiia (city), Sofiia, Stara Zagora, Tolbukhin, Turgovishte, Khaskovo, Iambol. In the 2000s the oblasts are the same except Kolarovgrad has been renamed Shumen, Tolbukhin has been renamed Dobrich, and Mikhailovgrad has been renamed Montana.

Selected Abbreviated Sources

This section contains works that cover Bulgaria as a country in a general way with many subjects, but are abbreviated in size or focus. For example, over the past decades the National Statistical Institute has produced a number of pocket-sized works in Bulgarian and English which provide data, but not quite as much data as appears in the Statisticheski godishnik [Statistical Yearbook] or in the censuses. Some of the titles listed below have a political focus, but we decided to annotate a few such works to alert the researcher to the availability of such titles. This section is not meant to be comprehensive since much of the data reproduced in these volumes is available in the major sources described elsewhere in this guide.

Regional Statistical Publications

The regional statistical annuals listed below are only the ones held by the Library of Congress. Although the bibliographies of Bulgarian statistical publications do not reflect the extent of publishing in this area, searches of the online catalog of the National Library in Sofia show that more volumes of regional annuals were published, albeit with slightly differing titles. For example, LC holds only the 1959/1963 volume on Sliven, but the National Library has that volume plus volumes for 1971 and 1996/2001. The website of the National Statistical Institute has a page devoted to regional statistics with data from the 2000s at http://www.nsi.bg/bg/taxonomy/term/%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B3%D0%B8%D0%BE%D0%BD%D0%B0%D0%BB%D0%BD%D0%B8-%D0%BF%D1%83%D0%B1%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BA%D0%B0%D1%86%D0%B8%D0%B8External link

Given that these regional titles are published sporadically and are not widely held in the United States, the national level and census publications are the best sources for published regional data. See also the section on Public Finances for several publications of regional budgets.

All Regions

This section lists a resource devoted to regional data, but it covers all regions of Bulgaria, instead of focusing on just one.

Special Subject Statistical Publications

This section includes publications on selected special subjects. The decision to cover one subject and not another was made based on the strengths of the Library of Congress collections and on the desire to give more complete coverage on topics present in the censuses. For example, there are statistical sources for agriculture and housing in addition to what is found in the censuses. Statistics are produced on almost every subject, but listing and annotating all would be impossible. If a subject of interest in is not covered here, see the Statisticheski godishnik [Statistical Yearbook] first to get some numbers. Also try searching the online catalog or WorldCat using subject headings such as Public health -- Bulgaria -- Statistics -- Periodicals or Publishers and publishing -- Bulgaria -- Statistics. The pattern for the subject headings usually includes the words "Bulgaria" and "statistics."

Agriculture

The agricultural censuses are interspersed and described in the section above on census publications since their results are frequently published jointly with population and housing census results. Agricultural censuses were conducted during every population census except 1881, 1885, 1985, and 1992, thus they exist for the following years: 1888, 1893, 1900, 1905, 1910, 1920, 1926, 1934, 1946, 1956, 1965, 1975, 2001. In addition, there were annual compilations of data on sown land and crops until 1993 and agricultural censuses separate from population censuses such as in 2003 and 2010. More data can be found at the website for the Bulgarian Ministry of Agriculture and Food http://www.mzh.government.bg External link, which has current information on various topics related to agriculture. The Ministry publishes a bulletin and an annual report, both of which contain many statistics in this field of study. Listed below are non-census sources for agricultural statistics.

Housing

The housing censuses are interspersed and described in the section above on census publications since their results are usually published jointly with population census results. Housing censuses were conducted during every population census except 1946, thus they exist for the following years: 1881 (just dwellings, not a real housing census), 1888, 1893, 1900, 1905, 1910, 1920, 1926, 1934, 1956, 1965, 1975, 1985, 1992, 2001, and 2011. Besides the housing census publications, several additional publications are presented below. To find other works in this area search the LC online catalog or WorldCat using subject headings such as Housing -- Bulgaria -- Statistics or Housing surveys -- Bulgaria -- Statistics.

Public Finances

This section is devoted to government finances such as the federal annual budgets and the financial situation of the state treasury. Some of these figures also appear in the Statisticheski godishnik [Statistical Yearbook]. This kind of data is usually produced by the Ministry of Finances or the Bulgarian National Bank, not the national statistical agency. This guide annotates important publications related to public finance during the pre- and post-comminist eras, but little for the communist period when Bulgaria was a planned economy. For the post-communist era, the website of the Bulgarian National Bank is very useful, for it has government related financial data about government debt and accounts, including some information for municipal public finance. Most publications of the Bulgarian National Bank will not be discussed in this guide, for its activities regarding public finance are only one part of its many functions. The Ministry of Finance website is annotated below, because it holds so much information on this topic.

These volumes are the annual budgets for the government of Bulgaria, which were voted upon in the National Assembly. They show allocated expenses for various ministries and branches of government and the percent difference from the previous year's budget. The budget also shows income based on taxes and government debt. The edict or ukaz issued by the tsar about the budget is reproduced at the beginning of each volume. The edicts and general figures in these volumes also appear every year in the Bulgarian official gazette, Durzhaven vestnik, but the full details with breakdowns by ministry appear only in the published volumes.
During the communist era, use Durzhaven vestnik to access the state budgets. It appears that full, separate budget publications were not produced. However, the online catalog of the National Library in Sofiia shows that there were annual dokladi or rechi [reports/speeches], approximately 40-50 pages each, presented to the National Assembly on the budget throughout the 1950s and 1960s. LC does not hold any of these publications to examine and annotate.
The website of the Ministry of Finances has full-text of the budgets and related reports beginning with 1997. For citations to Durzhaven vestnik printings of the annual budgetary ukaz from 1945-2010, see http://www.minfin.bg/document/7993:1 . For earlier years, there is an annual index bound with the main title, Durzhaven vestnik, listing the Ministry, ukazi, and the issue in which they are published. The Ministry of Finances is the issuing body for the state budgets.

Founded in 1879, the Ministry of Finances is "responsible for the financial management and policy of the state," according to its website. It is responsible for disseminating the state budget, as well as producing an annual report on the state of the Bulgarian economy and economic analyses and forecasts. The website of the Ministry is replete with statistics related to public finance. With much of the information available in both Bulgarian and English, this site should be a first resource for anyone interested in recent Bulgarian public finances.

The site is organized by tabs for various subjects, including The Ministry, Budget, Tax Policy, Government Debt, Public Expenditures, Bulgaria and the EU, Analysis and Forecasts, Statistics, and Documents. Much of the data goes back as far as 2002, for instance, the monthly Data on the Republican Budget http://www.minfin.bg/en/statistics/7 External link has an archive for the previous years. Besides budget figures, there are statistics on government debt. Some of these publications are annotated below. Data on fiscal reserves are available from 2003.
