Karachay-Cherkessia becomes worst region in Southern Russia in life quality rating

Karachay-Cherkessia occupied the last but one place among the regions of Russia in terms of quality of life. The top ten outsiders are also Ingushetia, Kalmykia, and North Ossetia. The best result among the regions of Southern Russia was shown by the Krasnodar Territory, which took the sixth place.

Today, on February 17, the results of the rating of the Russian regions in terms of the quality of life for 2019 have been released by the RIA "Novosti".

When calculating the quality life rating, the RIA "Novosti" used the data obtained from the "Rosstat" (Russian Federal Statistics Service), the Ministry for Public Health, the Ministry of Finance, the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, and other sources. 70 indicators were analysed. Each region was assigned a place in the life quality rating according to the points received (minimum ‑ one point, maximum ‑ one hundred points).

Among the regions of Southern Russia, the best result was shown by the Krasnodar Territory, which gained 63.067 rating points and took the sixth place. A year earlier, in 2018, the region held the same position.

Dagestan gained 39.347 points and rose from the 69th to 64th place, while Chechnya with 37.789 points retained its position on the 71st place. Kabardino-Balkaria takes the 75th place (in comparison with the 76th place in 2018) with 33.371 points, North Ossetia ‑ the 76th place (the 65th place in 2018) with 32.370 points, Kalmykia ‑ the 78th place (the 81st in 2018) with 31.498 points, and Ingushetia ‑ the 79th place (the 82nd in 2018) with 29.764 points. The worst result among the regions of Southern Russia was shown by Karachay-Cherkessia, which gained only 23.687 points and retained its position, being in the 84th, last but one, place of the life quality rating.
