Abstract

The paper is a survey of literature and statistical sources on poverty and inequality in Russia in the 1990s and the 2000s. It serves as a background to OECD (2011), the OECD Labour Market and Social Policy Review of the Russian Federation that was released in 2011. We start with an overview of poverty and income inequality estimates available. Poverty and inequality trends are then complemented with poverty incidence analysis based on a nationally representative household survey. Long-term poverty patterns are examined using a panel dataset with survival analysis methods. Poverty prevention and reduction policies are discussed in the conclusion. Ce document fait le tour des sources statistiques et bibliographiques sur la pauvreté et les inégalités dans la Fédération de Russie dans les années 90 et 2000. Il a servi à l’élaboration de l’Etude publiée en 2011 par l’OCDE intitulée « OECD Reviews of Labour Market and Social Policy : Russian Federation ». Ce document débute par un examen des données disponibles sur la pauvreté et les inégalités de revenus. Les tendances en matière de pauvreté et d’inégalité sont ensuites complétées par des analyses qui s’appuient sur des enquêtes nationales représentatives des ménages. Les motifs de la pauvreté à long terme sont étudiés en utilisant un échantillon de données avec des méthodes d’analyse de survie. Les politiques de prévention et de réduction de la pauvreté sont présentées en conclusion.
