Abstract

The paper provides regression analysis of data on registration of orphans in Russian regions in 1999–2006. The purpose of analysis is to understand what factors — cultural, economic, political and, maybe, some else — influence the quantity of orphans yearly recorded in Russian regions. The analysis confirms hypotheses about significant influence of cultural and political factors on the acuity of orphanhood problem in Russian regions. The impact of economic factors on the acuity of orphanhood problem in Russia is ambiguous.
