The article is devoted to the interrelationship of two the most important groups of social and economic indicators: the quality of life and the demographic indicators of fertility, mortality and migration. Firstly, the authors proposed to classify quality of life assessing methods into three groups. The practical analysis was carried out on the statistical data basis in Sverdlovsk region, the total population of which is about 4.5 million people. The article analyzes the demographic indicators in the region, reveals that the birth rate in the region is higher than in Russia in average. Further, the main indicators characterizing the quality of life in the region were analyzed. At the last stage, two indicators are determined, according to which a direct link is seen: with the growth of these quality of life indicators, the birth rate increases in the municipalities of the region. Based on the conducted research, the authors have suggested to create such a value system in a society that helps to formulate norms of healthy life and family traditions.
