Rosstat believes that the number of poor in Russia has decreased


For 9 months of 2021 (January-September), the number of poor Russians has become less than in the same period last year. This was announced on December 3 by the Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat), an executive body responsible for official statistical accounting of all social processes in Russia.


The department for the first time calculated the poverty line in the Russian Federation, presenting a new measured indicator of the share of poor citizens. It should be noted that the poverty level is always the highest in the first quarter and the lowest in the fourth quarter due to the payment of premiums at the end of the year. Therefore, a correct comparison is possible only with the same quarter of the previous year, and not with the ended quarter of the current one.

The population of the Russian Federation, for the specified reporting period of 2021, whose incomes were below the subsistence level, amounted to 17,6 million people, and the poverty level in the Russian Federation is estimated at 12,1%. At the same time, for 9 months of 2020, 19,6 million poor Russians were counted, and the poverty level was estimated at 13,3%.

So, in the first quarter of 2021, there were 20,8 million poor people, and the poverty level was 14,2%. At the same time, in the first quarter of 2020, there were 18,6 million people living below the poverty line, and the poverty level was 12,6%.

In the second quarter of 2021, there were 18,2 million poor, and the poverty rate was 12,5%. Moreover, the number of Russians with incomes below the subsistence level in the second quarter of 2020 amounted to 19,9 million people, and the poverty level was estimated at 13,5%.

In the third quarter of 2021, against the backdrop of one-off payments and an increase in wages, the number of the poor fell to 16 million, and the poverty rate dropped to 11%. At the same time, in the third quarter of 2020, there were 18,8 million poor citizens, and the poverty level was at 12,8%.

Rosstat tied poverty lines to income of 2021 rubles in 12770. per month for able-bodied citizens, 9727 rubles. for pensioners and 11591 rubles. for kids. In accordance with the approved changes, in 2022 the living wage for the working-age population will be RUB 13793, for pensioners - RUB 10882, and for children - RUB 12274.

    And Rosstat has halved the cadastral value of land in the Krasnodar Territory - and this against the backdrop of a general rise in prices, wild inflation. But the truth is, this miraculously coincided with the program of taking away the land from the population.

    Oddly enough, I have to agree with the statistics. Purely out of curiosity, I keep track of my expenses and income, and, indeed, with the obligatory expenses (food and housing and communal services) I fit into the given figures. By the way, according to my tables, food prices have risen by 2021% compared to 8,8. I don’t know what Rosstat will say to this.
