In 2015 the district of Sofia registered a considerable increase in GDP per capita and rising salaries and incomes brought about improved living conditions. Further growth could be frustrated by declining economic activity and the population’s unfavorable educational structure. Investment activity remains high in the district. The average tax load in Sofia municipalities is close to the national average level. Cadaster coverage is increasing but municipal authorities are lagging in transparency and service development.

Population ageing is noticeable all over the country but it is faster and deeper in the district. Sofia is still among the districts with the lowest results at matriculation exams. Hospital beds are a considerable number which determines the relatively big number of hospitalizations. Judges at the district court have high workload which affects the speed of justice administration. Due to the low urbanization and population density Sofia is one of the districts with limited access to public sewerage. The intensity of cultural life in the district is exceptionally low.
