Graduate work was devoted to the analysis of the affordability of housing and utility services for the population of the Russian Federation and foreign countries (mainly in the European Union). The relevance of the work is high enough as affordability of services is the basis for tariff policy development in the housing and utilities sectors. Currently, the highest authorities of the Russian Federation is actively used statistical material, according to which the population of the Russian Federation pays for housing and utility services much more than almost all European Union countries, as a justification of tariff policy ("freezing tariffs"/limiting indices). There are objective reasons for which this information can be in doubt, that is why at the framework of the research the adequacy of such a distribution was verified. The research hypothesis that the Russian population pays for housing and utility services more than the population of other European countries, was not confirmed. In fact, the population of the Russian Federation pays less than the population of almost all other European countries. At the framework of the research the methodology which help to bring the cost of maintaining European property to comparable conditions with the Russian housing and utility services was developed. Conclusions and recommendations on tariff policy change were formulated.
