“Frontier in social terms”
Overall, said the head of the region, by the end of 2015 the region has reached a particular milestone in social terms. “The average per capita income in 2005 is 25% behind the average level in Russia. Last year we exceeded the average level in Russia, however, by 0.4%, but still we have 30 thousand, he said. Made me particularly happy, if in 2005 the ratio of average per capita income to the subsistence minimum was two, meaning every employee could provide a living wage and one other person (no family here – not creative, i.e. social conditions), now we are approaching four to 3.85, that is, himself and three other people. But if two are working, it is no more of a living wage, it is possible to create a good family”.
