Using a unique data set of medium and large enterprises (MLEs), which covers four Russian regions and the three sectors manufacturing and mining, construction and trade and distribution, we estimate fixed effects specifications of static labor demand equations for the year 1997. The most important conclusion that can be drawn is that, even though labor demand is relatively inelastic in international perspective, six years into transition Russian MLEs are responsive to wage changes in their employment decisions. A second interesting finding shows that there are distinct differences in the behavior of state-owned enterprises, which exhibit a weaker wage employment trade-off than privatized and partially privatized firms. Looking at the entire sample and various sub-samples we also try to relate the estimated wage elasticities to the empirical evidence on three of Marshall’s rules of derived demand. Our results show that investigating empirically these rules seems a promising avenue for establishing some of the driving forces behind labor demand in Russia.

This study analyses wage diff erentials between Russian regions. We focus on two long-term factors shaping them: diff erent regional economic structures and living conditions. To examine the role of these factors we use micro-data from the Rosstat’s enterprise sample surveys conducted in 2005–2015, combined with data from the aggregated regional-level statistics. By estimating mincer-type wage equations extended with regional-level variables we show that cross-regional diff erences in employment composition are able explain no more than one third of the total interregional variation in nominal wages. Wage compensations for relatively worse living conditions (higher price levels, colder winter, and worse environmental conditions) account for about half of the remaining variation. Both factors together explain about 60% of the total variation. These fi ndings contribute to a better understanding of the nature of interregional wage diff erentials in Russia and have important implications.

We investigate the relationship between the key labour market indicators: productivity, real wages, and unemployment rate. The analysis is based on quarterly data for the period Q1 1995 to Q3 2013. Period free of crises (early 1999 to mid-2008) is additionally considered to check the crisis effects. We estimate vector error correction model (VECM). Cointegration was found among the main labour market variables. The model coeffi cient signs fully corresponded to the economic logic, and their magnitudes were almost identical for both time spans. No signifi cant asymmetry to positive and negative deviations from the long-term trend was revealed at the Russian labour market. The model allowed to measure contribution of different channels to the wage growth. We fi nd that productivity growth and decline in unemployment had similar impact on the wage change over the period under consideration. Our results explain thus the observed unusual trend of marked increase of the wage share in GDP. Contrary to standard belefs cross-country comparisons do not show an increased reaction of wages nor weak reaction of employment to productivity or output shocks.

Results of an empirical research on the volume and forms of retraining at Russian enterprises are presented in the paper. The study is based on the survey of about a thousand of managers of industrial enterprises carried out by IET. The analysis demonstrates that the majority of industrial enterprises provide retraining to some groups of personnel. The scope of retraining is comparable with the scope of retraining taking place in the East European countries, while the share of retraining costs in the overall expenditure on workforce is comparable with the West European countries. The results of the study suggest that the state training programs fail to satisfy the demand for general training thus imposing additional costs on industrial enterprises.

There has been a fast rise of interest within the economic science for studying eff ects of noncognitive skills on individual economic behavior. Empirical analysis of this sort requires data lin king individual psychological and economic variables. Psychological variables can be operation-alized by using concepts of “the locus of control” and of “the big fi ve” of personal traits. This paper presents descriptive systematization of various indicators of non-cognitive skills introduced in various waves of the RLMS HSE household survey in 2000–2016. Non-cognitive skills are analyzed in the breakdown by major socio-demographic groups and in the association with indicators of life success.

According to the existing literature, informality rates for Russia vary in a wide range from slightly more than 5 to nearly 30 percent. The question arises: what are causes and consequences of so huge variation? Using RMLS data for 2009 the paper investigates the degree of congruence between several alternative definitions of the informal employment in the context of Russian labor market. Analysis shows that depending on empirical definitions informality rates considerably differ – from 11 to 24 percent. With different approaches not only scale of the informal employment but also its socio-demographic profile radically changes. Furthermore, the econometric analysis reveals that the conditional impact of particular factors on the risk of informality varies considerably from one definition to another. This suggests that that estimates of the informal employment for Russia could hardly be regarded as methodologically robust.

  Numerous studies of informal employment were focused on its possible impact on the income of informal workers. However consequences of informal employment for socioeconomic position of workers and  social inequality in general couldn’t be reduced to the monetary changes. This article presents the results of  the empirical study of the subjective social status of informal workers in Russia in 2000–2010. The study  was carried out on the basis of a large nationally representative panel: the Russia Longitudinal Monitoring  Survey of the Higher School of Economics (RLMS – HSE) for 2000–2010. Dynamics in average subjective  social status of different categories of informal employment is investigated and compared to the formal employment, unemployment and economically inactive state. Special attention is paid to the analysis of informal employment as a factor of subjective social status estimates using different econometric techniques.

The paper discusses the composition and dynamics of low paid workers whose hourly wages do not exceed two thirds of the median value. Using RLMS-HSE data for 2002-2016, we analyze how the size and the composition of low-paid employment, and the likelihood of being low-paid have changed over time. Our findings suggest that the size of the group has decreased from 30 до 24% of the total employment over the study period, while the chances of being low-paid are significantly higher for those who have lower level of education, who are employed in low skilled jobs, and who reside outside large cities. However, the main focus of the study is on the earnings mobility of low paid workers. The key question is whether the low paid state is a dead-end and a long-term trap or is it just a stepping stone towards the high pay group? In order to answer this question, we apply a dynamic random effects multinomial logit-model, which allows to control for unobserved heterogeneity and to account for initial conditions problem. The study demonstrates high degree of structural dependence: two out of three low paid workers cannot exit this state over the year. This trap effect is stronger for women than for men. Though the stepping stone effect is also present, it is much weaker and relates to only one out of four low paid workers.

Using panel data from the Russian Longitudinal Monitoring Survey for 1994–2014, the paper analyses the distribution of the Russian workers by tenure and estimates returns to it. We demonstrate that average tenure sharply decreased in 1990–2005 but later started to restore to its previous level, which was most likely associated with general stabilization of the Russian economy. As comparing with previous studies on tenure in Russia we provide several novelties. First, we attempt to take into account transition specificity and distinguish between “old” (before 1992) and “new” (after 1992) tenures. Second, we suggest that situation in private and state sectors of the Russian economy might differ and provide estimates separately for each. Third, we for the first time apply to the Russian case well-known Topel and Altonji – Shakotko methods to deal with the endogeneity problem. Our OLS estimates indicate that a cumulative premium for 15–20 years of tenure  in Russia reaches 15–20%. However, when instumental variable methods are used it is close to zero or even negative.
