Russia: Case Study on Human Development Progress Toward the MDGs at the Sub-National Level

2003 Occasional Paper
By Zubarevich, Natalia

Russia's statistics analysis demonstrates that among MDGs indicators only 18 indicators are disaggregated by regions, 7 - by gender, 5 - by urban and rural population. In view of this, the author intends to use additional regional and gender information reflecting problems of human development. These indicators include income, wages, national poverty rate, life expectancy, unemployment by ages, the number of students etc. Furthermore, the analysis uses regional human development indices.
