This period is considered as a fifths stage of transition to specific social environment and long-term declines in population size and fertility while crud mortality increase. The decided role of death rate habitually is explained by the growing ageing as far as about 80% of the death events are between older populations 65+. The death look overrate in case of lack of accounting for specific structural age change and speed when population size is slowing according the statistical estimations. During the cited period the older people correlate with similar death level with slight variation and some reduce of mortality, proved by the small increment of life span. The age composition depends more of the birth declines and long-run determinants of young generation development and enormous emigration as well. This is proved by the different social studies of our scientific investigators in sociology, demographic statistics, economy, geography, social health protection, etc. providing data on the specific mortality in their area. On the base of this it is explained herewith the specificity of mortality in Bulgaria and the need of integration of knowledge’s and researchers in various aspects of mortality subject for scientific discovery and population policy help.
