Information was presented on the study of the standard of living of the population in the context of mahallas in Tashkent.
The Human Development Index is widely used in the world, which evaluates such indicators as the quality of life, education and life expectancy of the population. The index is notable for being in tune with the idea put forward by the Head of the state “In the name of human honor and dignity”.
Therefore, a proposal was prepared for the introduction of the Human Dignity Index in Tashkent. For this, mahallas from Chilanzar, Uchtepa, Sergeli and Yunusabad districts were selected. A survey of the population on 56 issues was conducted. Thus, it was determined which areas require the most attention and what residents feel the need for.
During the presentation, it was proposed to cover all the mahallas of the capital with such a study and, as a result, strengthen work in one direction or another.
“What will be the criteria for this? What will be achieved after six months or by the end of the year? Therefore, a scientifically based system is needed. It is necessary to create an analytical center in the Hokimiyat of the city by the type of a Situation Center, to create a software product. It is not easy to work in the context of mahallas, we take on a lot of responsibility. This system should show which mahalla, which street needs attention in the first place. All measures should be based on taking into account the opinion of the public, carried out after approval by local councils, in an organized manner”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.
