As seen from the analysis of the data of the third wave of the Man, Family and Society survey carried out by the Institute for Social Analysis and Forecasting, RANEPA, people rate highly birth-rate promotion measures undertaken by the RF Government from 2007. Most measures which came into effect in January 2018 (extension of the maternity capital program, payments to low-income families with children and provision of easy-term mortgage lending) meet the society’s requests. However, though the maternity capital program is regarded as common good for all, its effect in respondents’ estimates is diminishing when respondents’ personal reproductive plans are concerned.

Key words: demography, maternity capital, birth rate, low-income families and mortgage.
