The figures in the table below are calculated on the basis of annual NSI data, on the size of the population based on births and deaths, and data from the last census conducted in March 2001. The basic reason for the rise of the cultural expenditure per capita is caused by the significant the rise of GDP – more than twice between 2002 and 2008. For 2009, the level of cultural expenditure per capita is on a level with 2007, mostly because of the decrease in the GDP and budget restrictions of public expenditure.
Indicator 1: Public cultural expenditure, all levels of government, per capita in 2009 was 57.14 BGN or 29.30 EUR.
Indicator 2: This corresponds to 0.64% of the GDP.
Indicator 3: The share of the total public expenditure in 2009 was 1.72%.
