From this peak in the mid-1990s, migration system efficiency steadily declined before a slight upturn in recent years.
By 2005, the total fertility rate in the Russian Federation was up to about 1. Russia is also home to a large and possibly growing contingent of street children whose numbers could well exceed those under institutional care.
With this large migrant stock, Russia ranks among the top twenty countries in foreign-born percent. On the other side of the life cycle, a total of 24.What If the Soviet Union Reunited Today?
The twin shocks of U. Globally, data on internal migration and mobility are collected from a variety of sources. From the mid-1970s onward, age-standardized death rates from diseases of the circulatory system steadily declined in Western Europe. Mark Lawrence Schrad , Ph. The Russia Population Live counter shows a continuously updated estimate of the current population of the Russian Federation delivered by Worldometers' RTS algorithm , which processes data collected from the United Nations Population Division.
One major input into economic growth in the country was the overall, composition, and spatial distribution of labor resources. Officially, Russia classifies some 7 million out of roughly 120 million persons over 15 years of age, or roughly 6 percent of its adult population, as heavy drinkers.

It is difficult to determine exactly how many persons are engaged in such types of labor arrangements either now or in the Soviet period to determine changes in the levels.
Figure 3: World Population: Data from different sources measuring slightly different concepts are roughly consistent and point to a trend of declining population mobility in Russia.
Administrative data on internal migration are derived from population registers and other sources. Later in 2010, President Medvedev and the government went a step further and proposed that Russians should not live in the current 83 regions but be concentrated into 20 major urban agglomerations, where the resources are concentrated [ 48 ].
Data for Australia show migration efficiency falling from 15 in 1976—1981 to 11 in 1991—1996 [ 37 ]. The alternative explanation is that these are simply long-term demographic trends.
