In Russia 1.3 Million People Live with Incomes Above the Average
April 7, 2018 00:36


In Russia 1.3 million people live with incomes above the average, which is 0.9 percent of the adult population of the country. Bank experts estimated that in Moscow a person can be called wealthy if he gets a minimum of 150 thousand rubles a month, and in the regions - more than 120 thousand rubles.

During the survey, five thousand respondents were interviewed in more than 100 cities. Analysts evaluated not only their earnings, but also balances on accounts and spendings. The presence of dependents was also taken into account.

As part of the study, wealthy citizens were divided into three groups. The first group included Muscovites with an income of 150-200 thousand rubles and residents of the regions with 120-150 thousand rubles. There are 700,000 such people in the country. In the second group, 400 thousand people have larger incomes than the first group, and with an available state of 30-50 million rubles. In the third group, there are 200,000 super-rich people with a minimum disposable status of 30-50 million.

Rosstat does not publish separate statistics on earnings of wealthy citizens, but the service considers the minimum threshold of high income to be 70 thousand rubles. According to official data, in the end of 2016 there were 4.9 million of such people in Russia, or 7.2 percent of the population.
