Why Voronezh did not become millionnikom

On the All-Russia population census which was passing in the country from October, 14 till October, 25th, in Voronezh rested special hopes. And main from them has been, of course, connected with official acknowledgement of the status of a city - millionnika. From all columns and stands on passers-by appeals were strewed to take active part in this scale action. « everyone is necessary to us! » - repeated propaganda posters. As declared local authorities, to Voronezh was so important to become « the millionaire » not for the sake of prestige. The new status would allow to deduce a city on new level, to involve from the federal budget of more money, to construct the large medical centres, schools, kindergartens, sports complexes, and can be, even to spend the underground...

Before the census of Voronezhstat has announced results of preliminary check: according to migratory service and management the REGISTRY OFFICE, 961 823 persons lived in Voronezh
. That is to treasured figure us did not suffice about 38 thousand inhabitants. But it became now clear: to a city - millionnika we - alas! - while « have not grown »...

the statistics service yet does not disclose definitive figures, and informs only « population percent in comparison with the data predperepisnoj checks ». By the most rough calculations it turns out that in our city lives hardly more 972 thousand persons.
however many voronezhtsy are convinced: such result became result of the bad organisation of the action. People assert that copyists to them simply have not reached and at all have not left a note that came and have not found owners. Here some addresses where, according to our readers, and have not waited copyists: Vladimir Nevsky, 81, Vladimir Nevsky, 12, Srednemoskovsky, 7, Revolutions of 1905, 31...

And though our small research does not show a picture as a whole, it nevertheless directs at some thoughts.

- Copyists in the Voronezh region worked harmoniously enough and according to the plan. And that any houses could appear completely not copied, hardly probable probably, - speak in service of the state statistics across the Voronezh region. - there was at us one address - Lomonosov, 118 on which tenants have declared boycott from - for problems with water (read « In Voronezh tenants of a high-rise building boycott population census from - for municipal problems » ). But then many of them have come on stationary sites. During carrying out of the action phones constantly worked for us « a hot line » where people informed that copyists to them did not come. We there and then sent there our employees. In actual fact it appeared that some apartments in the concrete house have not been copied. Besides, from October, 26 till October, 29th there was a control detour of the copyist with the instructor in some addresses. It became, on the one hand, to check up work of copyists, and with another - to track, a leah was the double account. But all the same now to bring any results very much early. Tentative data on population should appear not earlier than April.
