The population is rapidly leaving the Khabarovsk Territory
Residents of the Khabarovsk Territory continue to leave the region, and most of all city residents do it. According to the Khabarovskstat, the decrease in the population of the region was mainly due to the migration outflow. So for 2011-2018 years, the region lost more than 19,3 thousand people, and in 2018, the loss from migration amounted to 4,9 thousand people. In general, over the past year, the urban territories of the region “lost” about seven thousand people - this is the worst figure in the last nine years.
Khabarovsk Territory ranks second in population among the regions of the Far East, second only to Primorye. Compared to the beginning of 2018, the number declined by 0,5% and in January 1 amounted to 1321,5 thousand people, 1084,2 thousand of whom are city dwellers.
Experts point out that the reasons for this trend are related to the socio-economic indicators of the region’s development, among which the most problematic are the absence of well-paid jobs, the inaccessibility of housing and high taxes.
