Abstract:

This article deals with the problems of the sociodemographic development of Siberia, both past and present. The author considers Siberia to be a macroregion in the context of its interaction with the Russian Far East. This research provides comparative data on Siberian society and the Russian Federation as a whole. Firstly, the author reveals the uneven population distribution in certain Siberian regions and the demographic features of urban settlements in the areas of new exploration. In addition, the paper thoroughly studies the present socioeconomic risks for the region. The statistical data analysis shows that the population of the Siberian macroregion has experienced more rapid depopulation in the last two decades than Russia as a whole. The findings further indicate that Siberia’s current development can be successful only through the implementation of an effective regional policy, drawing on its own demographic, financial, and intellectual resources. The results of this thorough sociological research assist the author in identifying the features of migration processes in Siberia and the level of the population’s “rootedness”. The author pays significant attention to the training of school teaching staff in the Far North, and lists some recommendations for regulating the migration process in this macroregion.
