Dataset Open Access
The database contains demographic, economic, geospatial data for 452 municipalities of the 16 administrative units of the Central Federal District in Russia (excluding the city of Moscow and the Moscow oblast) for 2010-2016.
The sources of data are the municipal-level statistics of Rosstat, Google Maps data and calculated indicators. The statistical data were arranged by the year, the data on municipalities for which there were administrative and territorial transformations for the period under study were excluded (in some cases, the data were provided in accordance with the administrative-territorial demarcation as of 2016).
Municipalities' websites were used to fill the lack of population information in individual municipalities for some years.
Calculated variables were made to estimate a number of indicators per capita, to introduce additional demographic indicators (e.g. migration inflow rate), to bring price economic indicators to base year prices (2010). For example, indicators of income of the local budget, volumes of investments in fixed assets (excluding budgetary funds), level of wages are modified to a comparable form (to 2010 prices).
The distances on roads in different units of measurement from the geographical center of municipalities to the center of the capital of the region are calculated using the Google Maps database.
Data mapping was performed using ArcGIS software.
