Mariana Mourgova


Poverty in Bulgaria is one of the main social and economic problems. Particularly affected by poverty is the elderly population. Their relative share of the population in Bulgaria is increasing mostly due to external migration in recent decades. Poverty among this vulnerable population must be a priority in state policies to ensure the well-being of the elderly. Gender differences in poverty are complex and they are of interest to many scientists for decades. The article aims to study the gender differences among the elderly population in Bulgaria measured by material deprivation.
