Rosstat to Change Procedure for Assessing Financial Situation of Russians

Rosstat will change the procedure for determining the financial situation of Russians, including in the assessment system provided to citizens social assistance and assets owned by citizens, Russian media informed.

In particular, Rosstat will change the assessment of the situation of large families, the elderly, and the disabled.

Rosstat has placed an order on the public procurement portal on the topic “Development of recommendations for improving programs and methods for conducting selective observations on socio-demographic problems.”

Rosstat also announced that it is looking for a system developer, with the cost of the lot being 3.52 million rubles and the deadline for the work until mid-December 2021.

Rosstat is going to assess small groups of the population, information about which, for various reasons, does not fall into statistics. We are talking about citizens with high incomes, people with disabilities, families with children, and older people, RBC notes.

Authorities have noted that it’s necessary to develop a long-term way of assessing the financial situation of such citizens. So far, Rosstat conducts one-time studies of such population groups, which does not allow identifying trends.
