Migration Intentions of Population in the Context of Regional Labour Market


Vladimir S. Polovinko and Anna V. Arbuz


The paper studies migration intentions of inhabitants of Omsk oblast under strengthening outflow of the indigenous population including the youth. The authors look at the inhabitants’ migration from the perspective of the regional labour market and employment. The article presents the results of the assessment of migration intentions of Omsk oblast’s population in terms of the varying degree of their formation, lists the reasons behind the change of residence, reveals chances of employment in the native region, and examines the interrelation between the migration intentions and the situation in the labour market. As a result, the authors come to the conclusion that the region’s residents, particularly, its young members, have formed intentions to leave the region, which are related to the subjective negative perception of the state of the labour market, when the region as a place of residence is associated with low wages, limited opportunities to find attractive jobs, build a career, etc.

Keywords: migration intentions; labour market; migration; unemployment; youth.
