Russia is now in 1100 cities, which are home to 73% of the population. The authors of the study analyzed the situation in 35 cities with population exceeding 500 thousand people. In total, these 35 cities live 46 million people — about a third of the population of the country.
Major cities are considered from a social point of view the most successful: they lower unemployment, more employment opportunities, more small businesses are developed and the average level of education is higher than in smaller cities.
Moscow was the leader in most of the rankings: commercial attractiveness, infrastructure, education, culture, banking sector and others. Weaknesses of the capital were only social services and security.
Under the social sector scientists understand the availability of kindergartens, doctors, and the conditions for receiving medical care. In this category, the leaders were, according to scientists, Izhevsk, Irkutsk, and Tyumen.
Under security, the authors meant the number of crimes committed per 100 thousand people. Least made at Ryazan, Penza, and Yaroslavl and Kemerovo, Tyumen and Irkutsk.
The city with the most comfortable climate became Krasnodar — here soft the temperature difference during the year. And here in Khabarovsk, Irkutsk and Kemerovo temperature change the most.
The leader in Russia by number of international events was St. Petersburg. He is recognized as a city with one of the most difficult demographic situations.
Irkutsk, Krasnodar and Tomsk is recognized as the cities with the least developed infrastructure in Russia. The leader in this category was due to the extensive Moscow metro network and development of traffic. Followed by Kazan and Naberezhnye Chelny — the city was able to expand road infrastructure and effectively fight traffic jams, scientists believe.
