The paper investigates changes in an occupational structure of the Russian labor market. The key goals of this study are to explain rates of occupational mobility in modern Russia and understand its main determinants. The analysis is based on RLMS—HSE survey and Rosstat data from 2005 to 2014. Such mobility indices for transition matrices as the Shorrock’s index and the directional index are used to measure changes in the occupational structure. An econometric analysis based on probit-models with random effects was used to support all the findings in this research. This work presents results about effects of individual, workplace and local labor market characteristics on the occupational mobility. It also provides an explanation for the influence of a business cycles on the occupational structure.
