Summary/Abstract: An effort to set up a theoretical model of relations between the educational structure of the economically active population and the major determinants of its evolution is made in the present study. The results obtained of the identification and analysis of the factors for changing the educational level of the economically active population in Bulgaria over the transition period to market economy are set out in it. The notion of “educational structure” was used as a measure of the educational level of the population. The study includes the most significant determinants having impact on the setting up and the moment state of the educational structure of the economically active population over the transition period. The results of the review of the specialised economic and demographic studies on the problem of modelling the relations between the educational structure of the economically active population and the major determinants of its evolution are summarised. The categories macroeconomic models where the educational level of the population is presented as a separate element and which could be used for identifying the relations between the educational structure of the economically active population and the major determinants of its evolution at macroeconomic level are discussed. A review of the published researches where object of study are partial dependences of the educational structure of the economically active population (or its sub-groups) and a specified determinant and the models of these connections. Two theoretical models describing the process of forming and the moment state of the educational structure of the economically active population in Bulgaria over the period considered are propounded.
