Scientific seminar "Quality of data on population and demographic processes in Russia"
On September 20, 2019, the International Laboratory for Population and Health was held the scientific seminar "Quality of data on population and demographic processes in Russia"
Population statistics are an essential element of the statistical system. Russia inherited from the Soviet Union a fairly developed system of population statistics, that was fairly up-to-date for its time. This system should have been developed further in order to meet modern challenges. Unfortunately, individual attempts at modernization not only did not lead to significant improvements in population statistics but in some cases led to the opposite results. Consequently, nowadays Russian population statistics is one of the most problematic among more developed countries. According to various estimates, the population at old age is overrated by 10-30% both in individual regions and the country as a whole. A decentralized coding system leads to incompatibility of data on causes of death for regions of the Russian Federation and to a catastrophic decrease in the quality of these data for the country as a whole. The transition to the use of a single population register theoretically if done properly could radically improve the system of population statistics and open up new research opportunities. However, the implementation of such a registry in Russia is completely opaque to the scientific community and leaves many open questions.
