Abstract

In 2004 a law regulating a replacement of some in-kind social benefits by cash payments was passed and liabilities for the benefit provisions were redistributed between federal and regional budgets. The objective of the paper is to study consequences of the ongoing and upcoming social benefits reforms. An estimation of the reforms conse-quences has been done by using a microsimulation modeling technique. A microsimulation model of the Russian population is built based on the data from the National Monitoring of Household Welfare and Participation in Social Programs (NOBUS).
