Factors Determining the Undeclared Work in Bulgaria

Economic Studies journal, 2022, issue 2, 65-94

Abstract: The study presents empirical data gathered by recent studies on the factors that determine undeclared work in the Bulgarian economy. The relative weight and the specific functions of six categories of factors have been thoroughly analysed: 1) legislative, 2) situational, 3) mistrust and deficit of prestige to the state, 4) national psychology, 5) economic and 6) personal and family situation. The paper argues that the factors determining undeclared work have complicated and dynamic nature, but if a correct methodological approach is applied, they can be empirically studied and explained. The knowledge of the factors determining the undeclared work provides a basis for contemplating its genesis, nature and dissemination – especially in the case of societies in transition. The better the knowledge and understanding of the factors that determine undeclared work, the more effective and successful are selected and designed approaches and measures to limit and prevent it.
