POPULATION AND HOUSING CENSUS IN BULGARIA IN 1905
Резюме: On December 31, 1905, the fifth census of the population and the fourth census of the housing fund in the history of Bulgaria began.
According to the Law on the General Population Census, buildings and livestock in the Bulgarian Principality of December 15, 1897, the census should be carried out every five years. The first preparatory measure prior to the census is the numbering of buildings. It was necessary to have the buildings numbered in advance in each populated place, re-numbered where none existed, or to check, repair or supplement the existing one. All census data for the population, buildings and livestock are collected and entered only in the form (enumerating form) prepared by the Directorate of Statistics, which have been sent to the municipal authorities. At the same time, the data collected during the census serve to allocate the population by gender, age, nationality, mother tongue, nationality, religion, literacy, natural handicaps and by households. Special county and county census commissions are taking care for the proper conduct of the census, which distribute the municipalities into census districts and determine the required number of census agents. The census on 31 December 1905 was conducted in 1 893 municipalities of the Principality by 20 834 agent-enumerators, of which 5 924 were in the cities and 14 910 in the villages. An average of 194 inhabitants were enumerated by one agent-enumerator, of which 133 are urban enumerators and 218 are rural enumerators. The processing of the data collected during the census is carried out in the Directorate of Statistics.
Publications from the census of population and housing fund in 1905 have been digitized and are freely available at the NSI's digital library. The digital collection contains 2 884 pages of statistical information.
