Abstract

The share of persons with higher education in immigration flows and the temporary migration to the Russian Federation is currently lower than that in the emigration flow from Russia. However, in quantitative terms the annual number of intellectual emigrants is small. Migration of persons with higher education inside Russia is mainly directed to metropolitan regions; Moscow and St. Petersburg do not prepare as many experts as they receive from other regions of Russia.

Keywords: Russian economy, internal migration

JEL Classification: J61, J62, F22
