Economic indicators place Gabrovo among the top ranking districts in Bulgaria. GDP and salaries in the district have kept growing; the labor market has retained a positive trend while local and foreign investment has been increasing. All monitored taxes and fees in the district’s municipalities, without exception, have maintained average rates lower than the national average figures. The district ranks first in the country in local government transparency.

The rapid population ageing is due to both a low birth rate and outmigration. The average grade in 2017 BLL matriculation exams was a little above the national average. The relative state of healthcare in the district can be evaluated as very good. The district is also characterized by a relatively high crime clearance rate. Besides, Gabrovo is one of the most highly urbanized districts which explains both the high share of people with access to public sewerage and the relatively intense cultural life.
