The high investment activity in the district affected both the labor market and incomes and living conditions in 2016. Employment in Burgas continued to go up and was above the national average for the first time in ten years. The share of highways and first class roads is way above national average figures. The municipal administration has performed well in electronic services and one-stop shop services. The rates of local taxes and fees in Burgas municipalities have stayed relatively high, though.

The demographic picture in the district is still relatively good, though the ageing of the population has followed the general tendency in the country. The state and the results of the educational system in Burgas are relatively unfavorable. The shortage of doctors, the relatively small share of health-insured people, and the insufficient capacity of hospitals explain the small number of hospitalizations relative to the population. The district’s relatively poor performance in security has continued. A rising interest in cinemas and theaters has been noticeable in the last few years.
