Analysis of Demanded Occupations: Regional Issues

The article analyzes regional differences in the occupational structure of employees. The source of data for the study is an online job database hosted on the Work in Russia website by the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection of the Russian Federation. Using the database, the authors have compiled the Top 100 list of the most demanded occupations in Russia. An investigation of demanded occupations by occupational groups revealed that the highest number of vacant jobs in Russia is observed for qualified workers, while the number for professionals and associate professionals is substantially lower. A region-specific analysis of vacancies showed that in May 2019 the highest number of vacancies was offered by employers in Moscow, Primorsky Krai, Moscow Oblast, Amur Oblast, and Krasnoyarsk Krai. We uncover considerable regional differences in the occupational structure of vacancies. Region-specific causes for the differences are industrial structure, natural resource capacity, military importance, and building of major objects in the region.
