Figure 0007: Respondents’ evaluation of living conditions by region.

Mentions: This lack of indoor amenities was reflected in respondents’ own evaluation of their living conditions (Fig. 4.2). A mere 15% of respondents rated their living conditions as “good.” The greatest proportion of individuals rating their living conditions as “good” were in Anabarsky region (23%). Anabarsky region also had the lowest proportion of respondents who described their living conditions as “unsatisfactory” (23%). Due to the conditions in the villages of Kyuptsy, Ezhantsy and Petropavlovsk of Ust-Maysky region, the number of respondents rating their living conditions as “unsatisfactory” was the highest among all regions, at 43%. Among the primary reasons for respondents’ dissatisfaction with living conditions were deterioration of their residential space and lack of amenities. However, the relative importance of these factors varied by region (Fig. 4.3).
