Two-thirds of Russia's residents spend more than half of their income on groceries. Such results were obtained in a joint study of the service Work.ru and IT company Evotor.

According to RIA News, 3,8 thousand people over 18 years old from all regions of Russia took part in the study. Moreover, the majority of respondents - 71%, said they spend more than 50% of their income on food. Of these, about 80% of their income is spent by 13% of respondents, and another 28% spend almost all of their income on food.

Least of all - about 20% of income - 17% of Russians spend on food. And of these, only 12% of respondents said that they do not need to calculate the cost of products.

The average spending of one Russian on food is about 32 thousand rubles a month. Moreover, women spend less than men on food - about 31 thousand rubles against 33 thousand rubles.

According to researchers, during the quarantine in April of this year, the average check for the purchase of products increased in all regions of the country, but residents began to go to shops less often. It turned out that when the check increased by 22%, the number of purchases themselves decreased by 42%. In April, Russians began to spend more on weak alcohol and on purchases in specialized butcher shops.
