“The Ministry should try very hard to help Rosstat. The issue of inter-Agency coordination with the Ministry of economic development will be easier to solve. De facto Rosstat appears on the government level lobbyist to represent its interests and all other agencies to guide in the right direction”, — said the head of the Ministry Maxim Oreshkin at the meeting of the public Council of the Ministry.

Shortly before this, about the problems Rosstat said its head Alexander Surinov. First Rosstat prevent lack of coordination in the collection of statistics. An “Orgy in collecting data from enterprises,” are engaged in several departments which duplicate each other, the reporting burden on businesses is very high, entrepreneurs are unhappy, and Rosstat is not able to coordinate.

The second problem is inadequate resources. For the good statistics you have to pay, said Surinov, and now the equipment in the office is old, the pay is low, but preparations for the census began with no money on it. Another problem, according to Surinov, “nihilism in respect of statistics in society.”

You need to “make every effort to Rosstat financial security,” said Oreshkin. In addition, you need to create a platform for discussion of problems in statistics, and it must function outside of the Rosstat, he added.

Rosstat, which previously reported directly to the government, was transferred to the jurisdiction of the Ministry of economic development in early April. Oreshkin said that the Ministry of economic development in the coming months will not interfere in the work of Rosstat, and subsequently will prepare the strategy of development of Russian statistics until 2024.

Rosstat has been criticized for the revision of the data, Oreshkin said about the “very unfortunate” the transition Department to a new methodology. Surinov said the Agency has long had to switch to the new classifications and the revision of the data — a normal practice that exists in many countries.
