The groups of conformal transformations of $n$-dimensional

pseudo-Riemannian orbifolds $({\mathcal N},g)$ are investigated for $n\geq 3$.

The Alekseevskii method of the investigation of the conformal transformation groups of

Riemannian manifolds is extended by us to psevdo-Riemannian orbifolds. It is shown that

a conformal pseudo-Riemannian geometry is induced on each stratum of that orbifold. Due to this,

for $k\in\{0,1\}\cup\{3,...,n-1\}$ exact estimates of dimensions of the conformal

transformati\-on groups of $n$-dimensional pseudo-Rieman\-ni\-an orbifolds admitting $k$-dimen\-si\-onal

strata with essential conformal trans\-for\-ma\-tion groups are obtained.

A key fact in obtaining these estimates is that any connected transformation group of an

orbifold preserves every connected component of any of its strata.

The influence of stratification of $n$-dimensional pseudo-Riemann orbi\-fold

to the similarity transformation group of this orbifold is also investi\-ga\-ted for $n\geq 2$.

The exactness of the obtained estimates of the dimension of comp\-lete essential groups of conformal

transformations and the similarity transformation groups of $n$-dimensional pseudo-Riemann orbifolds

are pro\-ved by constructing the constructing examples of locally flat pseudo-Rieman\=nian orbifolds
