Novosibirsk City Review


Novosibirsk's economic role in the country is less significant than that of Moscow or St Petersburg. Labour productivity (measured as GVA per employee) in Novosibirsk was 23% lower than in the rest of Russia in 2016, not least due to the lack of a qualified workforce.

Lower disposable income due to labour productivity disadvantage

The labour productivity disadvantage is the reason for the 20% lower disposable income per household in Novosibirsk compared with other parts of the country as of 2016. However, the city boasts a more equal income distribution than either Moscow or St Petersburg.

Lower consumer expenditure per household

Novosibirsk's consumer expenditure per household (excluding housing and transport) is 12% lower than that in the rest of Russia. Food is the principal expenditure category, capturing a 30% share of a typical household budget in 2016.

Less spending on transport and housing

Per-household spending on transport and housing was 8.9% below the average figure in the rest of the country in 2016. Real estate is not as expensive in Novosibirsk as in other key cities in Russia, while its stronger public transport usage helps economise on commuting costs.
