The relevance of the research is related to the need of improving the methodology for measuring the population poverty level in the Russian Federation. The purpose of the research is to develop methodological approaches to inclusion of non-monetary components in the system of factors taken into account in the process of estimates construction of population poverty level and its dynamics in the Russian Federation. The tasks to be solved within the framework of the ongoing research include: analysis of existing methodological approaches to measuring the poverty level; identification of problematic aspects of the monetary indicators use in measuring the poverty level; analysis and systematization of promising international measurement experience taking into account non-monetary components; development of proposals for improving the methodology for constructing estimates of the poverty level in Russian statistics. The research was conducted as part of the research work of the 2021 RANEPA state task. During the research, methods of analysis and systematization of existing promising developments in the field of integrated measurements of the level and dynamics of the population poverty level were used. The information basis of the research was promising developments in the methodology of accounting for non-monetary factors in measuring poverty, presented in documents of international organizations UN, IMF, World Bank, OECD and EU, as well as relevant developments implemented in the statistics of individual countries. The specific results of the research include: developed methodological basis for constructing multidimensional estimates of the population poverty level, recommended approaches to taking into account non-monetary components in measuring the poverty level and its dynamics, proposals for taking into account deprivation characteristics in constructing multidimensional estimates of the population poverty level. The main conclusions of the research: the most promising approaches to accounting for non-monetary factors include the development of material deprivation indicators, which can be supplemented with information on indicators of social isolation. The prospects of the research and the directions of further work are related to the development of methodological basis for constructing estimates of the poverty level based on a combination of its monetary and material characteristics.
