For Bulgaria, the original data comes from the first wave of the Generations and Gender Survey, conducted in 2004. The total sample includes 7007 women and 5851 men aged 18-85 at the time of interview.

The Bulgarian GGS was conducted with the financial support of the Max-Planck-Gesellschaft, Germany. The survey instruments and design were developed by the Institute of Sociology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, the Center for Population Studies at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, and the National Statistical Institute (Sofia) in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research (Rostock, Germany).
