In 2015 once again welfare was on the increase in the district of Yambol, albeit at a pace below national average. A stable rise in salaries and incomes as well as a relatively high employment rate explain the good living conditions in recent years. In 2016 the district’s labor market improved significantly, though investment activity was still relatively low. The main local taxes and fees in the district’s municipalities were close to national average levels in 2017. The district made no progress in cadastral map coverage and was lagging behind in electronic services.

Population ageing in the district is more clearly expressed than its national average level. Both education and healthcare are in a considerably deteriorated state. Yambol has continued to perform exceptionally poor at matriculation exams; the district is also one of those with the acutest shortage of specialist doctors. The workloads of criminal judges at the district court are relatively low which affects favorably the speed of justice administration. The crime clearance rate, on the other hand, is high. Cultural life in the district was not particularly intensive in 2016 once again.
