Information on the average per capita nominal monetary incomes of the population is formed on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis in accordance with the Methodology for Calculating (Estimating) nominal monetary Incomes of the Population, approved by Order No. 214 of the Chairman of the Statistics Committee of the Ministry of National Economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan dated September 21, 2016, registered with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Kazakhstan on October 21, 2016, No. 14350.

The calculation of the average per capita nominal monetary income is carried out at the macro level by aggregating all data (statistical and administrative) on the income of the population – income from hired employment (wages), income from self-employment, social transfers paid, other income, taking into account the population, since the calculation is made per person.

The assessment of nominal monetary incomes of the population (hereinafter referred to as personal income tax) is carried out monthly with an increasing total for the period from the beginning of the year only in the Republic of Kazakhstan, and for the quarter and year - in the Republic of Kazakhstan and regions.

The calculation of the per capita nominal monetary incomes of the population includes the following main stages:

1) calculation of nominal monetary income from employment;

2) calculation of the coefficient of calculation for concealment of wages;

3) calculation of nominal monetary income from self-employment;

4) calculation of current transfers paid to the population;

5) calculation of other monetary income of the population;

6) calculation of per capita nominal monetary income;

7) calculation of nominal and real monetary income indices.

**Calculation of the index of nominal monetary income of the population.**

To assess the dynamics of NCI , the index of nominal monetary incomes is calculated according to the following formula:

**Calculation of the real cash income index**
