Сравнительный анализ доступности жилищно-коммунальных услуг для населения Российской Федерации и зарубежных стран

Вопросы экономики. 2015. № 6. С. 63-80.
Шарыгина Ю. А., Сиваев С. Б.
The affordability of housing and utility services for the population of Russian Federation and foreign countries is analyzed in the article. The authors have developed the method which gives the opportunity to bring the housing and utility costs of the population of Russian Federation and foreign countries to comparable conditions. The main result is providing reliable distribution of the costs of the housing and utility services in European countries, where the Russian Federation has one of the lowest positions. So, existing substantiation of freezing tariffs for housing and utility services is ungrounded. There is a socioeconomic opportunity to raise tariffs for increasing investment attractiveness of the sector. There is also a need for redistribution of the population spending between housing and utility services in favor of the former.
