Russian Statistics Unhelpful in Predicting Future

Russian statistics are scarce, inaccurate, ormissing – and therefore misleading, rather than helpful. Their limited temporal depth makes any reliable long-term projections of the country's socio-economic development impossible, according to the report 'Russian Statistics: What Do They Preserve for History?' by Vladimir Bessonov, Head of the HSE’s Laboratory for Research in Inflation and Growth

Top 15 Most Interesting Reports of the HSE's XV April International Academic Conference

Russians are failing to cope with debt; small town economies are lagging behind; the Russian market is not favourable for a defined-contribution pension system, and Russian statistics are unsuitable for analysis – these were the top 15 most interesting papers from the HSE's XV April Conference, according to Opec.ru

HSE's Top 13 Most Interesting Studies in Economics in 2013

Elite motorists pose a mortal threat to the public; Russians are blowing their chances of building good public institutions; social media can bury politicians; reasons why our society is morally unstable and why expensive medical equipment is available but unused – these were the HSE's 13 most interesting and relevant research projects in 2013, according to Opec.ru.

'New' Economy Ignored by Statistics

Official statistics fail to capture – in fact, they simply ignore – the development of Russia’s high-tech industry. This distorts macroeconomic indicators and negatively impacts the quality of the government's decisions. Vladimir Bessonov has authored the report: “In Search of Information and Communication Technologies: The Quirks of Russian Statistics and Economic Measurements”

The HSE University Working Group represents Russia in the international KLEMS project

On 19 and 20 June 2008, the final conference of the EU KLEMS project on “Productivity in the European Union: A Comparative Industry Approach” was held at the University of Groningen (the Netherlands). The conference marked the completion of a 4 year research project by a consortium of 16 research institutions across Europe, having led to the creation of a large database on growth and productivity accounts at industry level for individual EU member states, various EU aggregates, Japan and the United States.
