Following the methodology for elaboration of the Index for Transparent Political Parties Financing, the 2004 rate was calculated based on values of the objective component (official publicly available data) and the subjective component (assessment of public perceptions of transparency of the political parties financing).
For the 2004 issue a poll was conducted in Dobrich, Blagoevgrad, Montana, Pleven, Sliven, Smolian and Sofia between October and December 2004. The research involved 220 representatives of the business, political parties, non-governmental organizations and the media.
The average value of the ITPPF for 2004 is estimated at 2.25 points, incorporating 1.98 points of the objective component and 2.53 points of the subjective component of the index.
