World Bank Forecasts a Rise in Poverty

General wealth levels in Eastern Europe and Central Asia have been improving since 2012 — poverty has been decreasing. But due to COVID, global poverty levels, including those of these regions, may increase considerably for the first time in two decades. Samuel Freije-Rodriguez, Lead Economist at World Bank, talked about this at the XXII April Conference organized by HSE University and Sberbank.

HSE University and Rosstat Sign Collaboration Agreement

HSE University and Russia’s Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat) will organize working groups on issues related to statistical accounting and implement several joint research projects. On February 28, HSE Rector Yaroslav Kuzminov and Rosstat Head Pavel Malkov signed a roadmap outlining the planned bilateral cooperation.

Connecting to New Data Flows

The 2018 FIFA World Cup showed that big data analysis allows to significantly improve traffic flows in a megacity. How to organise nationwide collection of statistical data to build more up-to-date and reliable indicators was discussed at the expert meeting on 28 December hosted by the Higher School of Economics jointly with the Russian Ministry of Economic Development and Rosstat. Pavel Malkov, the new head of the Federal State Statistics Service, and his colleagues presented general approaches to restructuring the service, and discussed with HSE experts the prospects for setting up Digital Analytical Platform which is being designed by Rosstat. The participants agreed that big data will not replace conventional statistics but allow to fill numerous 'white spots' in it.
