The Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) was initially created by the G-7 countries in 1992 as a way to obtain objective nationally representative data on the social, health and economic situation in Russia. It was established to mirror a multipurpose survey—the China Health and Nutrition Survey—and provide in-depth reliable raw data on Russia, accessible for the first time to both Russian and global scholars and institutions. This was instituted in the period following January 1992, when the Russian Federation introduced a series of sweeping economic reforms, including eliminating most food and reducing fuel and other subsidies, using freely fluctuating market prices, privatizing many state enterprises and working to create a growing private sector with private land ownership.
