Divorce in Modern Russia: Microeconomic Analysis
Economics
(Bachelor’s programme)
2017
This work presents an economic approach to the analysis of divorce is applied in the work. Based on the data of the Russian Monitoring of the Economic Situation and Health of the Population (RLMS) for 2004-2015. An empirical microanalysis of economic, social and demographic factors affecting the probability of divorce is conducted. We study the interrelationships between the characteristics of spouses who have survived the divorce: nationality, education, incomes, etc. Also, based on Rosstat and RLMS data, the dynamics of marriages and divorces among the Russian population is studied. For descriptive statistics, the Rosstat data is used, which are then compared with the results obtained on the basis of RLMS data. Transitive matrices are also used to identify the proportion of people who have certain characteristics and who have become divorced.

It was found that the probability of divorce is adversely affected by the presence of children, their number, the age of the spouses. The level of education of spouses and the income of the wife have a positive impact. To evaluate the regression, the probit model is used.
