Summary/Abstract: The paper aims to outline the trends in mortality of the Bulgarian population in the period. The analysis is focused on the dynamics of the demographic indicators outlining gender, age and education differences in mortality as well as differences in the causes of death. Special emphasis is put also on the dynamics of (healthy) life expectancy among men and women in Bulgaria. The results delineate growing social inequalities in mortality and (healthy) life expectancy in the recent period. These inequalities present the main challenge to the recent demographic policy of the country which should focus more on their alleviation in order to guarantee social equality for different social groups and sustainable socio-economic development in the future.
