Доля продуктов питания в структуре расходов населения регионов России как индикатор уровня жизни и модернизации потребления

Н.В. Зубаревич, Сафронов С.

Transformation of food consumption in Russia’s regions during the post-Soviet period is analyzed basing on the data on the share of food expenditure in the structure of consumer spending. A non-linear trend of consumption modernization is revealed, as well as its dependence on macroeconomic dynamics, level of money income adjusted for the cost of living, and poverty rate. The article shows the influence of geographic, economic and other factors on the share of natural food revenues in population consumption. Compared with the crisis of the 1990s, the latest crisis of 2014–2017 showed that the population of the regions just minimally compensated the decreasing money income by the growing revenues from household plots of land. The patriarchal model of adaptation to crises by intensifying revenues from the household plots is becoming a thing of the past in the majority of Russian regions.
