The rating was based on expert analysis, as well as processed statistical and rating data.
The regional authorities effectiveness evaluations are valid for late November 2015.
A particular trend notable in the rating was the overall decline in regional authority effectiveness: the average value reached 0.588 this time, compared to 0.592 in 2014. The Penza region earned 0.579 points in this rating.
The regional authorities were shown to be the least effective in the finance and economics field: the average rating in this area was 0.53 points, while the Penza region received 0.475 points. According to the researchers, the negative trends are currently growing, and regional authorities are struggling to counter them for a variety of reasons.
The average effectiveness in the social field reached 0.631 points, with the Penza region having 0.632 points.
At the same time, the average rating in the policy and management field is 0.602 points, with the Penza region getting 0.629 points.
The leader of the management effectiveness rating overall was Tatarstan with 0.754 points, followed by the Tyumen and Belgorod regions with 0.744 and 0.717 points respectively.
“Among the fastest growing regions, most of which are located in the middle of the list, are Karachaevo-Cherkesia, Mordovia, the Stavropol and Khabarovsk Krais, the St. Petersburg, Lipetsk, Magadan, Orenburg and Tula regions, as well as the Nenetsky autonomous region. The Penza and Sakhalin region, where the governors had been replaced by Kremlin, were also included in this group, mostly thanks to expert analysis. These regions greatly differ as well, but unlike the ‘underdogs’ with dropping scores, the governors there managed to improve the results,” say the rating notes.
