SPP 254

Author: Richard Rose, CSPP
Description: Economies can be analyzed at both the macro and micro-economic levels; in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania a cross-cutting dimension is also relevant, comparing similarities and differences in the micro-economic conditions of the multiple nationalities living there. This paper first maps different levels and types of economic activity specially relevant in economies in transformation. Secondly, it draws upon the New Baltic Barometer (NBB) of April, 1995 to analyze individual and household economic conditions in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania today. In each country the Barometer separately examines Baltic and Russian nationals. It can thus test how important nationality is--or is not--for economic success or for avoiding destitution. The conclusion draws together comparisons of micro-economic conditions and macro-level data about Baltic states, showing the need to use micro-level data to understand what is actually happening within societies in transformation.
