Importance The article addresses the processes of spatial mobility of the population in Russian regions and the influence of various socio-economic factors on them.
Objectives The aim is to determine the combination of socio-economic factors impacting significantly on the direction and intensity of migration processes in Russian regions.
Methods We performed a statistical analysis to reveal the correlation between indicators, characterizing the trends in migration processes, and the socio-economic development of Russian regions (more than 100 indicators). The study draws on methods of structural analysis, dynamics analysis, methods of economic and mathematical modeling.
Results We prepared a list consisting of 24 indicators. Based on their standardized values, we offer an algorithm to define integrated indicators that consider a variety of parameters.
Conclusions The results of the study can be used for decision-making in the sphere of regional development management in the Russian Federation, the population policy in particular.
