Putin approved the creation of a rating of the quality of life in the regions
Russian President Vladimir Putin approved the idea of creating a rating of the quality of life in the regions. The Agency for Strategic Initiatives and representatives of business associations will be involved in its development. Specialists will prepare questionnaires for the population on the most common social problems, so that the "well-being" of citizens does not exist only on paper.
As the Kommersant, with the help of the rating it will be possible to evaluate the general satisfaction of the society with the social sphere - to cover the spheres of education, healthcare, social support, personal security. Among the issues are the ease of access to medicines, disability, the placement of children in kindergarten or school. The results will further affect the ratings of governors.
In most international social welfare ratings, Russia is not in the best position. According to the OECD Better Life Index, our country is in 33rd place out of 38 countries, in the Economist Intelligence Unit "Where-to-be-born Index" - in 72nd out of 80, in the UN World Happiness Report - in 68th out of 156.
However, according to experts, these data do not always reflect reality. Some of the ratings are based on economic and statistical indicators, and then the countries with the highest GDP per capita are in the lead.
