Almost 40% of Russians work not by the chosen profession and the worst situation is observed with parents with many kids, disabled people and parents of disabled kids. The head of Russian Statistics Committee Alexander Surinov has voiced this information on Wednesday in the course of RBK press conference, devoted to results of complex examination of Russians’ living conditions.

Thus, as it turned out, 76% of the interrogated are satisfied with their work mode, 57% receive moral satisfaction of their work and 64% of Russians are satisfied with work conditions but at the same time only 26% are satisfied with their earnings and 57% call their occupation reliable.

18% say they are able to find more suitable work. Citizens of the cities with population one million and more and youth at the age under 29 have more assurance.

Satisfaction with living conditions has become one more subject of investigation. Only 10% of residents don’t like the settlements they live in but the share of unsatisfactory is higher among young people. Roads (60,3%), spreading of alcoholism (46,6%) and bad organization of housing and communal services became the main grounds of dissatisfaction. Villagers worry about low availability of social infrastructure, while urban citizens think more about road problems and traffic safety.

People at home face the problems, connected with noise insulation, shortage of heat, excessive humidity and shortage of sunlight and residents of rural settlements face difficulties with water and electricity supply.

About 20 thousand adults and 4 thousand kids have answered the questions, offered them by experts. This is the first complex investigation, covering such different themes as living conditions, health protection system, internet spreading and leisure of Russians. Russian Statistics Committee regards this project as a pilot one and intends to interrogate about 60 thousand households in several years (10 thousand have been interrogated this time).
