Prolonged period of industrial business surveys conducted by the Gaidar Institute and representative range of indicators permit to resolve the first task – analyze the situation in the sector in 2019 – determine the place for the year 2019 in all the 28 years’ history of our monitoring the industrial sector. For this purpose, first of all, we will use aggregate indicators. The latter are usually calculated on a monthly basis on the findings obtained from monthly surveys and became widely popular owing to promptness of the findings and limitations of official data released on the Russian industrial sector. However, this approach to present surveys’ findings complicates assessment of each year as a whole. That is why we analyze all consolidated indicators in a year-on-year basis for the entire period of IET business surveys launched in 1992.
