The liter index DIA declined in November 2020
DIA analysts based on Rosstat data on the monthly nominal salary of Russians and prices for drinking milk (whole, pasteurized, with a fat content of 2.5-3.2%), mineral and drinking water, and table grape wine with a strength of up to 14% calculated the Liter Index. The liter index is the volume of drinking milk, water and wine in liters per month that Russians can buy on a salary.
If we translate a nominal salary of Russians in November 2020 to liters, we get 833,46 liters of drinking milk (1.3% less than in October 2020 and 3% more than in November 2019) or 1405 liters of drinking water (0.4% less than in October 2020 and 1.3% more than in November 2019) or 111,7 liters of wine (0.8% less than in October 2020 and 0.2% more than in November 2019). In addition, the analysts of the Agency calculated how many liters of raw milk can be bought for a nominal salary per month based on the Dairy Index DIA, the Liter Index of raw milk was 1,738 (1.7% less than in October 2020 and 0.6% less than in November 2019).
Снижение Индекса литра в ноябре 2020 было обусловлено снижением номинальной заработной платы, при том, что цены на указанные продукты продолжили расти (кроме минеральной воды).
