Summary/Abstract: The paper examines basic demographic and social characteristics and outlines trendsin the Smolyan District as a basis for the formation of human resources. The analysis is based on a comparison with the other districts in the country, and also with the average level of different indieators for Bulgaria and for the European Union, in order to reflect the actual place of this district in our modern world. The demographic and migration processes that influence the available human resources, as well as the development of the labor market and social indicators are analyzed. The interest in Smolyan District comes from the desire to outline its specificity among the other districts in the country, as the second smallest in the country after Vidin District by the number of the population and comparatively less studied. The chosen period of the past ten years is appropriate to follow the development of Smolyan District during the years of Bulgaria’s membership in the European Union (EU) from 2007 up to now.
