I'm looking to combine Russian census data with georeferenced polygons.
This is for a research project looking into different aspects of mobility within the Republic of Саха (Sakha/Yakutsk), the data available via GADM is not sufficient (Note that the answer to this question indirectly refers to GADM data and thus does not answer my question)
The problem is that I am not able to find any kind of geodata – be it either a download from the Russian Census Office or any place to purchase it.
On the other hand, the administrative boundary polygons in OpenStreetMap seem to represent at least in parts the same entities. Unfortunately, the tags do feature neither терсон nor окато ids, and the place names do not match up either (I also tried a similarity comparison using a Levenshtein algorithmus which did not yield any but a few matches).
Can anybody with a better command of the Russian or Yakutian language and more experience with Russian census data point me into the right direction to where to obtain терсон polygon data or link OSM data to терсон ids? We do have some budget for geodata and local project partners (who unfortunately don't have any experience with statistical or geographical data), so purchasing the data, also from within a Russian academic institution, might be an option.
