Employment and Labor Productivity in Macroregions of Russia: Spatial Interdependence

  • V. A. Rusanovskiy
  • V. A. Markov
Regional Problems


The article shows that indicators of spatial distribution of employed and economic potential are becoming the key indicators of the economic development of Russia. It has been revealed that the localization of these resources determines the regional differentiation in labor productivity. Regression relationships between labor productivity, employment, urbanization parameters, agglomeration and localization have been determined. The forecast of regional localization of employment on macroregions of Russia has been carried out.
