Опыт моделирования миграционных потоков на уровне регионов и муниципальных образований РФ
An attempt to model the migration flows at regional and municipal level for the period 2003-2008 in Russia is made. Research corroborates the importance of "poverty traps" in determining migration in Russia. Main flows originate from regions and municipalities with higher wages, that means from more social and economic developed territories. Despite stable social and economic development the constraints that do not allow citizens to change their residence still exist in the regions. However, according to the results of internal migration modeling in one of the Russian regions, the poverty trap effect is insignificant for relative close movements.
