Yekaterinburg posts population increase 2.7 times higher in 2013
In 2013, over 23,000 people were born in the Middle Urals capital, while more than 16,000 citizens died, resulting in a natural population increase of 7,130 people, Ural Business Consulting reports.
Experts said the increase was the largest since Soviet times. In 2012, there was an increase of 3,282 people, and in 2011, there was an increase of 2,175 people.
The death-birth ratio is a large indicator in the socioeconomic development of large cities, according to Ural Business Consulting.
Alexander Vysokinsky, the deputy mayor for strategic planning, economy and finance, said the increase is the result of efforts of workers in the healthcare system. Yekaterinburg allocated $5.8 million for investment in city clinics and hospitals in 2013.
