Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE

Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey of HSE

The Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey (RLMS) is a series of nationally representative surveys designed to monitor the effects of Russian reforms on the health and economic welfare of households and individuals in the Russian Federation. These effects are measured by a variety of means: detailed monitoring of individuals' health status and dietary intake, precise measurement of household-level expenditures and service utilization, and collection of relevant community-level data, including region-specific prices and community infrastructure data. Data have been collected 19 times since 1992. Of these, 15 represent the RLMS Phase II, which has been run jointly by the Carolina Population Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, headed by Barry M. Popkin, and the Demoscope team in Russia, headed by Polina Kozyreva and Mikhail Kosolapov.

All current and future users should read this letter, which describes major changes to the RLMS-HSE. 

All potential users of the RLMS-HSE data must first register and then complete the requirements outlined in the Data-Use Agreement.  Data use, confidentiality and data security are critical components of the agreement.

For any group using the RLMS-HSE data, we require in all publications (book, book chapter, refereed journal article or presentation) the following acknowledgment of the institutions that now support and manage the survey.  This is the only way to ensure future funding and to allow individuals with any document we might see to be allowed further access to the RLMS-HSE for them or their institution.
