Abstract

Using data from the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring Survey, we provide information regarding changes in individual and household economic indicators, as well as alcohol consumption and nutritional status in Russia during 1992–1996. During this period, there have been declines in income and expenditure, and substantial increases in the prevalence of poverty. At the same time, per capita alcohol consumption has risen significantly, as has the prevalence of obesity. We discuss the significance of these findings within the context of the current mortality crisis in Russia.
