Estimating mincer-type wage equations on the micro-data of Occupational Wages Survey, 2007 we first receive estimates for returns to higher education for all regions-subjects of Russian Federation. Our results show that interregional differentces in returns are very large in Russia. Returns to higher education received from the estimation of basic mincerian equation lie in the range from 32 to 140% (from the average wage of workers with secondary education), and the country level of return equals to 65%. Variation in estimates based on an augmented wage equation (which additionally includes industries and ownership) is much lower, but it still remains quite substantial: estimates differ from about 60 to 150%, and the country level of return equals to 90%. In this regard, the standard approach producing one estimate of return to education for the whole country seems to be a serious simplification, and an answer to the question what is the level of return to education in Russia is no more trivial.

This book presents the results of a comparative analysis of society and culture in Eastern Siberia, situated within a broader Russian context. The study is based on empirical research supported by the Russian Humanitarian Scientifi c Foundation under two grants: “The development of social capital in the Krasnoyarsk Territory” (scientifi c research program, grant № 11-03-00250a); and “A socio-cultural portrait of the Krasnoyarsk Territory” (scientifi c research program, grant № 10-03-00001a). It employs a multi-paradigm approach, based upon accepted theories by Russian and Western sociologists, and post-non-classical models with corresponding research methods as well. Modern Siberia (illustrated by its Eastern regions – the Krasnoyarsk Territory and the Republic of Khakassia) is studied as a unique sociocultural phenomenon. The study locates Eastern Siberian regions as a holistic sociocultural formation within the Russian Federation. Thus, the research focuses on the particular identity of the Eastern-Siberian population, modernization processes in the region, and the distinguishing attributes of the Siberian mindset, including orientations on basic values and value experiences. Special consideration is given to Christian archetypes, archetypal symbols and values in the collective consciousness of the respondents. The effect of archetypal symbols and values on social changes is discussed. Finally, the research includes a study of attitudes among teachers to their students and society in general.
The measurement of quality of life on municipality level is necessary for effective economic policy performance evaluation. The article presents the results of a study of municipal statistics data which is aimed at finding economic indicators related to quality of life within municipalities. Following an established methodology, the authors analyze available information on households’ income, consumption and wealth. The authors have examined open municipal statistics sources and found significant limitations of them. A number of indicators of wage, the retail trade volume and housing is suggested for municipal quality of life index to be constructed allowing for possible access to the data.
This paper evaluates disparity between the regional center and regional periphery using the data on the components of population dynamics in low-level ATU for the period 1990-2002. It analyses migration outcomes for 10 Russian regions in terms of the remoteness from the center and also compares the difference between the regional centers and regional periphery when it comes to the indicators of natural and mechanical population decline.
