Assessment of gross urban product in Russian cities and its contribution to Russian GDP in 2000–2015

Russian Journal of Economics. 2017. Vol. 3. No. 3. P. 263-279.
Tatyana Polidi, Kosareva N.

The article presents a new methodology for estimating gross urban product (the gross domestic product by city or metropolitan level) in Russia under extremely low statistical data availability about economy performance at the local level. These estimates provide new analytical instruments for assessing disparities in economic development between more than 1,000 Russian cities and other areas, and cities’ contributions to GDP as well as for comparing indicators of Russian cities with those of foreign countries.
