In 2016, consumer price inflation declined to 7.1%. In the previous year, inflation was 15.5%. Consumer demand depends on, among other factors, the two most critical parameters: actual take-home pay, which remained flat year-on-year, and the number of unemployed, which decreased by 0.5%.
The period from February to July 2016 saw an active accumulation of income in cash. By July, the positive balance of household income and expenditure amounted to RUB 252.3 billion (according to Rosstat). In August–September household consumption was on the rise; accumulated income in cash started to decline driving an increase in transport mobility (due to pent-up demand).
Pent-up demand along with certain improvements in the macroeconomic environment boosted population mobility in Q3 2016 and helped increase the overall passenger turnover in 2016.
