Where is the Altai Territory in terms of poverty?

The Altai Territory is among the top ten outsiders in the ranking in terms of household income in 2021. According to a RIA Novosti study, 16,8% of the region’s residents were below the poverty line. At the same time, in the neighboring Altai Republic the situation is noticeably worse. The ranking of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation according to the level of security of citizens was carried out based on the ratio of income and the cost of a fixed set of goods and services. The basis was taken as the average median income of the region – the value at which exactly half of the population has above a certain amount, and the second – below. This indicator was taken for the period from April 1, 2021 to April 1, 2022. The share of residents below the poverty line was calculated based on average per capita income below the official poverty line. Thus, the ratio of the median income of residents of the Altai Territory to the cost of a fixed set of goods and services was 1,18. At the same time, 16,8% of the region’s population found itself below the poverty line in 2021. Thus, the region took 77th place in the ranking by population income and was among the top ten outsiders. According to Rosstat, at the end of 2021, the poverty line in the region was set at 10 rubles. For the working population – 825 rubles, for pensioners – 11 rubles, for children – 559 rubles. In absolute terms, 9239 thousand residents of the Altai Territory received income below the threshold value. It must be said that this result, in particular, is due to the new methodology for calculating the subsistence level (LM), introduced last year. Until last year, Rosstat recognized as poor those who receive less than the minimum monthly wage, which was previously based on the cost of the consumer basket and mandatory payments. Starting from 2021, government statistics consider PM as 44,2% of the median per capita income for the previous year. During this time, due to inflation, the fixed set of consumer goods and services became even more detached from the subsistence level. For example, in 2021 in the Altai Territory it was 10 rubles, and by the end of the same year the set of goods and services was already estimated at 665 rubles, as follows from statistics. By May 17, this value increased to 340,79 rubles, while the PM was raised to 2022 rubles. Meanwhile, in the ranking of regions by income of residents, the neighboring Altai Republic took 83rd place. Here, the ratio of the median income of citizens to the cost of a fixed set of goods and services was 0,98, and the share of the population below the poverty line was estimated at 22,4%. In other words, the median income does not allow local residents to provide for themselves normally. At the same time, the average accrued salary in the republic is noticeably higher than in the Altai Territory. In addition to Altai, the top five subjects that close the ranking include Karachay-Cherkessia and Kalmykia – the ratio of median income to the conditional set is 1,0, Ingushetia – 0,95, Tyva – 0,93. In all of these regions, more than 20% of the population lives below the poverty line, and in the last two regions this value is close to 30%. The top five rankings included: Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, where the median income can afford 3,12 sets of goods and services, Nenets Autonomous Okrug – 2,78, Moscow – 2,48, Chukotka Autonomous Okrug – 2,39, Magadan Region – 2,28 ,9,5. In these regions, the share of the poor population does not exceed XNUMX%. The national average ratio of the median to the cost of the consumer basket is 1,59, while 11% of the total population of Russia lives below the poverty line. As experts note, the number of poor people in the Russian Federation is gradually falling. In their opinion, this was, in particular, influenced by the new calculation methodology, and no further improvement in the situation is expected. “In the coming year, we can hardly expect positive trends related to income growth and poverty reduction. According to a number of estimates, in 2022 the Russian economy will show a decline in GDP, and accordingly, household incomes will also decline in real terms. The resumption of real income growth should be expected no earlier than 2023,” the authors of the rating suggest. Let us recall that according to one of the recent studies, more than half of the population of the Altai Territory in 2021 had an income of less than 20 thousand rubles, and the poorest received about 8269 rubles. The region ranks 78th in the ranking of family well-being. At the end of March, the average salary in the region was 35 rubles. Compared to the same period last year, in nominal terms it increased by 571%, and in real terms it fell by 14,6%.
Three republics of the Siberian Federal District (SFD) are among the ten Russian regions with the highest share of the population living below the poverty line, Kommersant reports. These are Tuva, Altai and Khakassia. In Tuva, Rosstat counted 28,8% of the poor, in Altai – 20,4%, in Khakassia – 18,1%, with an average figure for Russia of 9,8%. Among other regions of Siberia, Kuzbass and Novosibirsk region are closest to the average Russian poverty level – 11.4% and 11,3%. Experts note that 2023 will also be difficult for residents of the Siberian regions. It is noted that the average poverty line for the regions of Siberia was about 13,6 thousand rubles (this is 15% more than in 2021). The lowest limit is less than 12,5 thousand rubles. – was established for the Omsk region, Altai Territory and the Republic of Tyva. The highest is 15,7 thousand rubles. — in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.

14: 57, 04.05.2023 Damn Rosstat! It ruins all the statistics. Recently Tomenko reported to the sun-faced man how everything is growing in our region, but here it’s such a dirty trick. These are all the tricks of the Anglo-Saxons. 18: 38, 04.05.2023
Guest, do not be confused – the article talks about the Altai Republic – not about the Altai Territory!!
16: 11, 05.05.2023
Guest, the Altai Republic and the Altai Territory are not the same thing. Didn’t manage to influence the governor?))
15: 03, 04.05.2023 There, there, well done Tomenko! 15: 23, 04.05.2023 Isn’t it possible to prosecute one of them for lying? 15: 34, 04.05.2023 Prices are the highest in Siberia, and the poverty level is the lowest. But if we make it average for Siberia, then what? Will half the population of the Altai region be poor? So? 15: 56, 04.05.2023 It’s just that the region is inhabited by the laziest serfs who want to do little and receive a lot, but that doesn’t happen. Do you want to become richer? work harder and better. 16: 41, 04.05.2023
Guest, everything is fine, colleague, everything is fine.
18: 45, 04.05.2023 Guest, The horse worked a lot on the collective farm, but did not become rich. The important thing is not to work hard, but to get a lot. 19: 05, 04.05.2023 Guest, is the salary in organizations set by the state? there are plenty of examples where the “master” and his “family” are “bathing in gold”, and “hired” workers receive pennies, like a subsistence minimum. the further from the capital, the less the authorities provide legislation. the roads of Biysk are an example of this – the city, where the number of enterprises has decreased significantly, but there is a significant overabundance of “retail outlets” – the number of expensive cars is comparable to the capitals 19: 10, 04.05.2023 really, who is to blame for you that you lack basic self-esteem and you are ready to work for such people))) do you think that you are worthy of pity and understanding? you are mistaken, people like you who are ready to work for food and create such a situation, such “slaves” are worthy only of contempt! 19: 44, 04.05.2023
Guest, if a cow is milked but not fed, how long will it last?
20: 10, 04.05.2023 Guest, it was recently. in the 20s of the 20th century – “particularly active” (and “particularly active” then were “former” quitters and mediocrities who received power) slaughtered all the livestock of “prosperous” peasants in the regions and took away the entire harvest.. and the next year they were surprised. for some reason nothing grows and everyone is starving. the “theme” was that it is more profitable to take as much as you have “in one fell swoop” and be left without everything later, or to take in moderation, but constantly 20: 15, 04.05.2023 Guest, 19:44, 04.05.2023 example is not correct, cows ready to work for food and even for less (stupid slaves) will last for several more centuries and you shouldn’t feel sorry for them, they themselves chose the life of reptiles, on the contrary, they should be despised, because they They ruin the lives of not only themselves, but also others; in normal countries they are called strikebreakers and sometimes even beat up by their own people. 20: 36, 04.05.2023 Guest, In this matter it is advisable to maintain a balance. A hundred years ago, they also thought, that’s why they are cattle, to spread rot on him. Take it and hang its owners on lamp posts. There is no need to go too far, there is another end to it. 21: 39, 04.05.2023
Guest, stupid slaves are teachers and doctors? Who are you then?
16: 03, 04.05.2023 But the price tags, especially for milk, are higher than anyone else! Goober, keep it up! 16: 12, 05.05.2023
Oleg, what does the governor have to do with this? Some are thick-headed in the comments.
16: 34, 05.05.2023 Gena, if he has nothing to do with everything, then why does he occupy this chair and receive so much money? With his monthly salary alone, you can do a lot of useful things in the city, and if you remove all his deputies and other riffraff “who also have nothing to do with it,” then listen, the whole region will become prosperous in all respects and there will be enough money everywhere.
