Russia – Data from the new Rosstat survey have been added to LIS

LIS is delighted to announce that the entire series from a new Russian survey has been added to the LIS Database. The data are based on the 5 waves of the new Survey of the Population Income and participation in Social programs (PIS) carried out by the Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat).

The 5 waves correspond to 4 new data points for LIS (RU11 for Wave VIII, RU14 for Wave IX and RU15 and RU16 for Wave X) and one revised point (RU13, which we have updated with the PIS data). At the same time as releasing those new data, the three previous data points (RU04, RU07 and RU10) have been revised in order to include some additional family and education benefits; this correction has a modest impact on total disposable income.
