On December 3, a Russia KLEMS seminar was held for the presentation of the new data release.

New indicators have been added since the previous release in March 2017: volume indices of information and communication capital services and volume indices of labor services which take into account changes in the quality of the workforce. Russia KLEMS 2019 is adapted to the official indicators of the 1993 SNA. The adaptation of Russia KLEMS to the 2008 SNA requirements will be made in the December 2020 release.

The second open training seminar was held on November 26. The approaches to constructing performance indicators and the choice of statistical indicators depend on the tasks for which the performance analysis is required. These may relate to the study of interdependent, but not equivalent, phenomena—the development of technology, efficiency gains, lower real costs, the optimization of production methods, or higher living standards. Another important criterion when constructing performance indicators is data availability in national statistics.
