The Civil Society Development Fund has made a rating of the regions by the level of socio-economic development. The top 25 among the Far Eastern territories included the Magadan Region, Chukotka, Kamchatka, Khabarovsk Territory and Sakhalin Region.

As they write "News”, The new rating was compiled by the Civil Society Development Fund based on data from Rosstat, the Ministry of Finance, the Federal Tax Service and Roskazna. The main criteria were the average monthly salary, the cost of the consumer basket, the industrial production index and the ratio of the region's income to the debt to the federal center.

The first place was taken by Moscow, which experts assessed by the level of public debt. At the same time, in terms of wages, the capital was only on the fifth line.

According to experts, the Magadan Region at the end of last year became the leader in terms of wages and the minimum cost of living - this is how the compilers of the rating indicated the cost of the food basket. At the same time, in the aggregate, the region rose only to the seventh line of the rating.

Chukotka is on the 12th place. The region also rose due to high salaries at the end of 2020. Kamchatka Territory took 18th line, and Khabarovsk - 19th line of the rating, and 24th - Sakhalin Region.

At the same time, the compilers of the rating note that due to the geographic location, the cost of living can be high even with sustainable economic development. Because of this, the filling of budgets with real production volumes may not correspond to the standard of living of the population. This means that extractive regions, like Kolyma, were among the leaders due to the volume of tax to the regional budget, the volume of goods shipped and, in general, the health of the regional budget.
