Внутренняя долговременная миграция населения в России и других странах

The article questions the thesis of the low migration activity of the Russian population in the way of in-country resettlement in comparison with foreign countries.  Reasons prevented a direct comparison of data on internal migration in Russia and other countries had been analyzed. Mainly, they were related to differences in the size of units of administrative and territorial division and diversity in approaches to the definition of in-country migration. Based on the migration data of 2013-2014. it was concluded that Russia and several countries with advanced migration statistics differ substantially. Russia lags behind the leading countries about twice. However, it is superior to other countries, especially in eastern and southern Europe, in terms of migration intensity.

Analysis of internal migration flows by age shows that, in general, Russia and other developed countries have similar age migration profiles.  in contrast to other comparable countries, Russian peak at the age of 15-29 years is more clearly defined and biased to the youngest age. It is related to a greater compactness in the life path of socio-demographic events, which leads to migration movements. Differences between the age profile of migration in Russia and other countries in the rest of the age groups do not correspond to our expectations, they are not great.
