Figures of the National Statistical Institute (NSI) for the third quarter of 2015 reveal that, during this period, the average monthly wage was the highest in Sofia, where it stood at BGN 1193 (611 euro). Sofia is also the only region in which the average wage was above the average figure for the country, with the difference being 36.5%. Surprisingly, the second highest average wage was registered in Vratsa, one of the poorest regions of the country. The highest remunerations were earned in the information sector with a 13.3% increase compared to 2014 due to the competition for qualified IT cadres. In twelve sectors, which employ more than 1.7 million people or more than 77 % of all workers, wages were lower than the average country figure.
