Importance The research focuses on socio-economic, organizational and administrative relationships that arise from the interaction of labor migration and the regional labor market.
Objectives We determine how the Tiebout model Voting with Feet can be practically applied, and rank the attractiveness of federal districts for domestic migrants.
Methods We used general scientific methods (deduction, induction, analysis, synthesis), specific methods (evaluation of socio-economic indicators of labor migration in the region, modeling of processes and phenomena), methods of dialectical logic, and statistics. The research relies upon fundamental and applied proceedings of national and foreign scholars specializing in the regulation of migration flows and labor market.
Results We carried out a statistical analysis of federal districts and constituent entities of the Russian Federation, identified specifics of migration processes per federal district and constituent entity of the Russian Federation. The article provides our recommendations on the way to apply our findings for regulating labor migration at the federal and regional levels.
Conclusions and Relevance The labor migration level in regions of destination shows whether the region has comparatively favorable conditions for employment and/or living. The findings can be used by federal, regional and local authorities to outline and scientifically substantiate programs for regulating labor migration, developing and operating the labor market.
