Initial 3 : The government and most institutions dealing with the public should include information and analytic tools, not forgetting forecasting, as methods of dealing with socioeconomic changes.

the level of drug proliferation in Petersburg as compared to the world statistics; the efficiency of the federal government on combating the menace; programs already in place to tackle the problem and the budget used; and budgetary forecasting. The forecast would include the prediction of the drug proliferation in the next five years and the amount of money that will need to be used to deal with the problem. In conclusion, the development of technology has helped administrations in decision making. SAS has been applied in Russia to assist in decision making especially in socioeconomic issues.
