Far Eastern Federal District hit the top ranking of the regions in terms of middle class
In general, in Russia among families where there is at least one working person, only 14,2% can be attributed to the middle class. In the 71 region, this category does not exceed 20% of the total population.
The study was based on data from Rosstat. The middle class included those who can afford the purchase of a car and apartment, corresponding to the number of people in the family. You can buy on credit, but after all payments there must be at least two regional minimum living wages per person.
The leader of the rating was the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, where 45% of families can be attributed to the middle class. Second place in the Magadan region - 34,5%. Chukotka closes the top three - 33,8%.
According to RIA News", in the 61 region, the share of the middle class does not even reach a low average Russian level. In 35 regions, it is less than 10%, and in three regions it does not exceed 3%.
