Yakutia and Kamchatka have become leaders in Russia in terms of the number of poor
Chukotka was among the regions whose incomes were the largest in Russia. A few more subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District showed the opposite result - the proportion of people living below the poverty line became the largest in Yakutia and Kamchatka.

According to the study RIA News, the greatest incomes are from residents of the Yamalo-Nenets and Nenets Autonomous Districts, as well as Chukotka. The fourth place was taken by the Magadan region. These regions have become the leaders of the population income rating. It was based on the ratio of the median per capita monthly income of the population to the cost of a fixed set of goods and services in each specific entity in 2018 year. The top ten also includes the Sakhalin region. In the last ten was the Jewish Autonomous Region.

The ranking also took into account the proportion of the population living below the poverty line. As the authors of the study note, some of these people actually experience not just some need for money, but literally struggle financially for their survival. In Russia, 2,1% of the population has incomes less than half of the subsistence minimum. This can be called extreme poverty, or even in some cases poverty, experts specify.

Earlier, the Accounts Chamber of Russia stated that it considers unlikely significant real income growth population on the basis of 2019 year. According to auditors, this year it will not be possible to reduce the level of poverty.
