Municipality Bled, which is part of the gorenjska statistical region, measures 72 km2; this ranks it 96th among Slovene municipalities.

Statistical data for 2015 reveal the following:

In the middle of 2015 about 8,100 people (about 3,950 men and 4,150 women) were living in the municipality, which ranks Bled 65th among Slovene municipalities. The population density was 112 people per square kilometre, which was higher than the national average of 102 people per square kilometre.

The number of live births was higher than the number of deaths, which means that natural increase per 1,000 population in the municipality was positive. It was 1.6 (in Slovenia 0.4). The number of people who moved from the municipality was higher than the number of people who moved into the municipality, so net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was negative. It was –13.1. The sum of natural increase and net migration per 1,000 population in the municipality was negative. It was –11.5 (in Slovenia 0.6).

The mean age of people in Bled was 44.5 years, which was higher than the national average (42.6).

As in most Slovene municipalities, in Bled the number of old people was higher than the number of young people: there were 157 people, aged 65 or more, per 100 people aged 0–14. This ratio shows that the value of the ageing index was higher than the national average of 123. It also shows that the mean age of people in Bloke is growing more rapidly than in Slovenia as a whole. Data by sex show that the ageing index for women was in all Slovene municipalities higher than the ageing index for men. In Bled – as in most Slovene municipalities – more women were 65+ years old than 14 or less; for men the situation was the same.

There were 40 students and 10 graduates per 1,000 people in the municipality; in Slovenia the averages were 39 per 1,000 and 9 per 1,000, respectively.

Among people aged 15–64 (i.e. working age population) about 59% were persons in employment (i.e. persons in paid employment or self–employed persons), which is more than the national average (58%).

The registered unemployment rate was 8.4%, which is less than the national average (12.3%). As in most Slovene municipalities, more women than men were unemployed.
