Pazardzhik is one of the districts with the worst indicators for living conditions and social inclusion, and one of those with the worst educational profile of the workforce. The recovery of the labor market took place between 2012 and 2014, while 2015 witnessed a minimal rise in employment and a drop in the population’s economic activity. Investment has gradually increased but still staying below the national average. The rates of local taxes and fees are relatively high; administrative and infrastructural development follows the general trends. 

The population’s age structure is relatively good but the natural growth rate and the net migration rate point to an inevitable deterioration in the near future. The educational system’s results are low and so is the intensity of cultural life. Hospitals have a relatively high capacity and the number of doctors is close to the national average, which explains the relatively high number of hospitalizations in local hospitals. The clearance crime rate is higher than the national average, while the judiciary is relatively speedy despite judges’ growing workloads. The unsatisfactory condition of the environment is the result of the low connectivity of the population to WWTPs.
