The Yaroslavl Region was formed in 1936. The territory is about 36.4 thousand square meters. Km. The population of the city of Yaroslavl is 605.2 thousand people. In the region as a whole, 1338.7 thousand people live permanently, urban residents of them - 1088.6, rural - 250.1 thousand. The main feature of the territorial distribution of the population is its unevenness.

The population of Yaroslavl. Change in quantity

As you know, a favorable demographic situation contributes to the development of the economy, a critical situation provokes various difficulties in different spheres of life. Population since the end of the 19th century. And until the end of the fortieth years of the 20th century it increased. During this period, there is a significant predominance of fertility over mortality. The fact that during this period the population of Yaroslavl increased, also contributed to the development of industry. For the erection of enterprises, for example, labor was required. She was attracted from other parts of the country. The maximum level of the number of inhabitants in the region was noted in 1939, which is due to the greater (in comparison with the present time) area of the territory. Military experts characterize as a demographic depression. In the postwar period, the country as a whole was in an economic crisis. It should be noted, however, that during the period from 1979 to 1988, the population of Yaroslavl (according to the census) increased significantly. In 1991, the number of residents reached the highest level. Later it began to decrease. This trend continues today.


As early as the beginning of the 20th century, there was a slight decrease in the birth rate in Russia as a whole. In Yaroslavl, since 1991, there has been a clear trend towards a decrease in this level with subsequent stabilization of low indicators. At the same time, as experts note, the decline in the birth rate is also observed in peacetime against the backdrop of an increase in the death rate. This situation is called pronounced depopulation. There is an opinion that the number of children directly depends on the quality and standard of living of citizens of reproductive (reproductive) age. However, there is no such causal relationship here. This is proved by the fact that many progressive countries in Europe take various measures to improve the demographic situation, while poor countries in Africa, for example, are compelled, on the contrary, to struggle with high birth rates.

Statistics of the last decades

According to the census, the population of Yaroslavl in 2010 was about 591 thousand hours. These figures are slightly lower than the previous figures. However, at the same time, as the statisticians point out, in recent years there have been slight shifts in the direction of reducing the natural death rate and increasing the birth rate. Of course, up to the values that were during the Soviet Union is relatively far, but nevertheless the demographic crisis that began in the 90s is gradually declining. The population of Yaroslavl is replenished and at the expense of visitors. Migration in recent years has a significant impact on the number of residents. It should be noted that despite the influx of citizens from other regions, especially from Kazakhstan, the population of Yaroslavl remains stable by its national composition.
