Factors of Spatial Mobility for Russians

Based on the Integrated Living Conditions Monitoring in Russia, the article determines the levels of population mobility in different Russian regions. The subject of research is Russian tourism mobility. A series of binary logistic regression equations shows that individual factors (economic status and health) have the greatest impact on tourism probability; the effect of transport infra­structure attributes on the leasure-time spatial mobility is «absorbed» by the characteristics of individual income, i.e. regional discrepancies in the standard of living correlate with the density of transport infrastructure. Spatial mobility for tourism is increasingly associated with land transport infrastructure rather than air transportation. In fact, the differentiation of Russian citizens by their actual tourist mobility parameters replicates economic inequality, and the density of transport infrastructure differentiated by regions does not mitigate the impact that economic resources exert on travel.
