The concept of a decent life for everyone is different, someone is enough to provide their seven products and housing, it is important to have means for rest, traveling, buying a car, develop yourself.
Experts more than once suited polls among citizens in order to find out how much money is necessary for normal life, we also decided to spend our little investigation.
Food costs are approximately 1/3 of the total amount of Russian expenses. Calculation of the necessary amount of products is individual and depends on human preferences.
The cost of the consumer basket is considered one of the important statistical indicators, since the size of the subsistence minimum is calculated on the basis of it, as well as the minimum salary amount established by the Government of the Russian Federation. The ratio of the subsistence minimum to the minimum wage should be 1: 1.
Thus, according to the estimates of experts for different federal districts, its cost of consumer basket is formed. For example, this year for residents of the Central Federal District, the cost of the average set of products is 8.2 thousand rubles, while for the Southern Federal District, 8.5 thousand rubles will be equal, and for residents of the Far East, the price of a consumer basket is 10.2 thousand rubles and so on.
Rosstat calculates the average Russian price indicator based on the values of federal districts. As a result, for 2021 for Russians, the cost of the consumer basket in monetary terms is: for children — 9,900 rubles, for pensioners — 8,200 rubles, and for adults-bodied citizens — 10,800 rubles.
If you take into account the cost of living in Moscow: for pensioners 13,496 rubles, for state-born citizens 20,589 rubles, and for children 15,582 rubles, then a month for a family of three people — two adults and one child, according to the state, 56 760 rubles. Accordingly, about 20 thousand should go to food.
Do these reality calculations match? In fact, if you do not order food from restaurants, do not visit the cafe and cafes of catering, to eat budget — you can put this amount. But the consumer basket count does not take into account the large number of products that are included in the daily diet of citizens, such as coffee and chocolate, so the family of three is unlikely to have 20 thousand for products.
In some regions, utility payments are growing with a record speed. Experts considered that in the middle Russians spend about 5,000 rubles for housing and utilities receipts. But in reality, this amount is unlikely to be limited to this number. At the same time, the values vary from the region, as well as the type of real estate.
At present, analysts indicate that in the middle Russians spend 9-11% of their income on utility payments, which includes spending on electricity, thermal energy, gas, water supply, overhaul, and maintenance and repair of housing.
For a full-fledged life, not only food and housing are needed, but also the purchase of clothing, payment of public institutions, leisure and entertainment, and so on.
So, on average, the fee for mobile communications and the Internet goes like a Russian in 1000-1500 rubles per month. The entertainment is spent about 5000-7000 thousand rubles. It takes about 5,000 rubles per month. And at the gas station of the car, if there is an average of 6 — 7 thousand rubles per month. Experts say that the amount of non-food goods is equal to half the amount, which is spent on products.
In practice, it turns out that it is possible to qualify for a decent standard of living, a very small percentage of all Russians. This is associated with a low level of wages, lack of work and high prices on housing and communal services, products and housing.
According to a survey of residents of Russia, there are $ 50,000 — 70,000 thousand rubles for a comfortable existence, such an answer has given a greater number of respondents. The remaining Russians responded that for a full life, it is enough to receive from 20,000 to 50,000 rubles. And only units agreed to wages up to 20 thousand rubles.
