Reproductive attitudes and behaviour in Bulgaria

It is a sociological survey, representative for the country, achieved thanks to the efforts of BFPA and UNFPA which include argumentation, organizational activities, searching for funding and supporters so that in Bulgaria there is data and information from which it is visible what the reproductive attitudes and behaviour of Bulgaria's population. Such a survey hasn't been done since 1996 - more than 15 yeras ago. In neighbouring, and also in farther away states that are not EU-members, a number of serious national surveys have been conducted, that present up-to-date and adequate data. Now we have them too, for which we thank prof. Maia Grekova who conducted the research and did the analysis. The field work on a national scale was done by the Alpha Research agency.
