In order to accomplish this goal, a comparative, factor and cluster analyses were performed. After comparing the results of clustering by two methods – k-means and hierarchical algorithm, the last one was chosen. The analysis of the clusters’ dynamics, as well as a comparison of annual intra-cluster indicators of economic development and small business were carried out. According to the results of the analysis, the conclusions about the relative stability of the distribution in the clusters in the considered period were made.
