Three regions of the Far East at once entered the top ten regions recognized as the most prosperous in material terms. They earn more than the national average in Sakhalin, Chukotka and Kolyma.

The rating was made by experts RIA News... The results of 2020 and the Rosstat indicators were taken as a basis, from which they revealed the ratio between the median average per capita income in the region to the cost of a fixed set of goods and services. In general, the average income across the country fell by 3,5%, the ratio on average across the country was 1,58 against 1,65 a year earlier. At the end of the year, only six regions were able to show growth in median income.

The best indicator among the Far Eastern regions was found in Chukotka: among Russian cities, the region took fourth place. Here, with a ratio of 2,23, only 8% of residents live below the poverty line.

Next, on the fifth line, is the Magadan region. The ratio of income to the cost of a set of services here was 2,27, and only 8,7% of the population live below the poverty line.

Further, with the sixth result, the Sakhalin Region was in the ranking. The ratio to the cost of a set of services also turned out to be higher than the national average, and poverty is 7,7% of the population.

In 15th place is the Khabarovsk Territory with a score of 1,65 and 12% of the poor. Kamchatka and Yakutia followed with the same indicator of 1,65. Only in Yakutia there were more poor people: 17,4% versus 14,9% in Kamchatka.

The Primorsky Territory is immediately 10 lines behind the Khabarovsk Territory. With the 25th result, it turned out that the ratio of income to the cost of a set of services was 1,55, and the poor population in the region was 13%. Nearby, on the 28th line, is the Amur Region with a poverty rate of 1,52 and 15,2%.

In Transbaikalia, with a coefficient of 1,3, the percentage of poverty was 21%: these are 61 lines of the rating. Buryatia turned out to be even lower with the 68th result, a coefficient of 1,28 and 20% of residents living below the poverty line.
