With this, the governor advanced from the third group (for average-rating heads of regions) to the second (with high effectiveness level).
According to rating notes, the 8-point improvement over a month is the best achievement in the list registered by the experts: based on the CSDF opinion, this change came thanks to appreciation of Ivan Belozertsev’s activities as a governor in basic (sociological polls) and expert modules.
The leader of the 11th rating is Dmitry Kobylkin, head of the Yamalo-Nenetsk autonomous region. His nearest competitor Anatoly Artamonov, who previously shared the top of the list with him, lost four places, ending up 5th-6th.
The underdogs of the rating are Andrei Shevelev and Sergei Yastrebov, heads of the Tver and the Yaroslavl regions, whom the experts consider the weakest governors.
The calculation method of the gubernatorial effectiveness rating uses five thematic modules to complete the final figures.
The first – basic – module is an amalgamation of sociological polls by the Public Opinion foundation and expert evaluations; the second is based on the Rosstat data; the third evaluates the social standing level in regions; the fourth reviews the economic situation in each subject; and the fifth analyzes the media content of gubernatorial activity.
The regional economic situation evaluations in the 11th release of the rating was reflected in opinions of experts who built upon the figures on regional debt servicing capacities, industry dynamics and gross regional product levels. The regional economic standing module is expected to become a standalone factor in the rating starting next year.
The 11th rating continues to use an additional negative factor in the evaluation – the affiliation factor, that demonstrates the ability of each governor to facilitate transparent economic development with fair and honest competition in their constituency and analyzes their possible affiliation with business activities, if any.
