Long-Term Development Path of the Second Industry in Central Asia
In this paper, I compile 100-year statistics of the countries of Central Asia using declassified confidential documents of the Soviet Statistical Office obtained from the Russian State Archives and other materials and quantitatively characterize the long-term development path of the second industry in the region. The issue of the possible up-ward bias of the Soviet industrial statistics is also examined. Comparative analysis between the USSR and the Central Asian region and among Central Asian countries basing on the above long-term statistics provides valuable findings including the close relationship between the socialist industrial allocation policy and the growth rate of the second industry for deeper understanding of the economic development history in Central Asia during the socialist era and the following transition period towards a market economy.
