Over the years, the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development has compiled vast databases containing information on various characteristics of Russian regional economics, politics, and social development.
A part of our mission is giving open access to the databases so that all interested researchers can use them.
Here are the ICSID databases containing data from the open statistical information sources (formatted in a consistent and user-friendly way), several expert evaluations, and the results of research carried out by the ICSID staff.
If you use this data, please indicate the source - databases created by the International Center for the Study of Institutions and Development of the National Research University Higher School of Economics.
Before we grant access to the databases, we ask all users to complete a short survey. It is designed to give us insight into the external users' needs and to collect feedback. All information gained will be used to improve the later versions of the databases. The contact details may be used to request feedback about your user experience.
Databases currently available:
1. Social and economic characteristics of the Russian regions
Socio-economic Database Codebook (DOCX, 73 Kb)
2. The biographies of the Russian governors
Governors' Bios Codebook (DOCX, 45 Kb)
To access the databases, please complete a short survey.
