The Results of the Modern Demographic Policy in Russia


  • Larisa A. Popova

    () (Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences)


The article reveals how the demographic processes in Russia are influenced by federal and regional demographic policy measures of 2006-2011 and by the national project ¡°Health¡± and health care modernization programmes for 2011-2012. The author dwells upon the modem trends in the birth rate of Russia¡¯s population, upon the changes in its structure by the age and marital status of mother. The article evaluates which actual generations have received the maximum reproductive benefit from pronatalist demographic policies, and what are the prospects concerning fertility. The article considers the dynamics of life expectancy of Russia¡¯s population and the changes in the structure of mortality by causes.
