Abstract

This article provides an overview of existing techniques used to improve the reliability of classification. In particular, it focuses on the multivariance as a simple and reliable method of increasing the reliability of estimates. The use of multivariance aythorth consider on an example of the Index of the ecological situation of Russian Regions, that has been designed as part of complex estimation of sustainable development. The index includes three indicators: damage caused by air pollution, amount of discharged polluted wastewater and environmental protection expenditures.

Keywords

multivariance, indexing, sustainable development, reliability, mapping.
