Миграция пожилых в России (по данным переписи населения 2010 г.)

Карачурина Л. Б., Иванова К. А.

The article analyzes the regional characteristics of migration of the elderly in Russia. Using the data, composed on the basis of the National Population Census of 2010, we allocate the share of people aged 60 and older in the structure of the inter-regional and intra-regional migration flows and describe the intensity of this type of migration. The results of the analysis demonstrate that intensity of the migration of the elderly differs across the regions. The highest migration intensity is observed in the Far East and northern territories. Retirement migration from these regions happens before people reach the legally defined retirement age for men and women in Russia. In fact, migration of the elderly from the northern regions is the resettlement of the ‘young-elderly’. Low migration intensity of the elderly is characteristic for most of the republics and autonomous okrugs. In the paper, we also define major centers of in-migration and out-migration of the elderly within the Russian Federation, as well as outline general characteristics of the migration of the elderly in Russia.
