Student: Naylya Biktasheva

Faculty: Faculty of Social Sciences

Educational Programme: Public Administration (Master)

Year of Graduation: 2021

The purpose of the work is to develop proposals for improving the existing demographic policy in Russia in terms of stimulating the birth rate. The study examines the foundations of the theory of demography and fertility, the regulatory framework for the implementation of demographic policy, and also examines the current demographic state. The factors influencing the birth rate are determined on the basis of the studied theoretical approaches, applied research and international experience in demographic policy. Economic and non-economic indicators were selected to assess the impact of factors and included in the analysis model. Further, the analysis of statistical data in relation to Russian regions was carried out. The constructed panel regression model confirmed the direct influence of a number of the considered factors on the value of fertility. However, effects were also identified that were not predicted. Proposals were developed to improve the mechanisms for stimulating the birth rate, taking into account the results of statistical analysis. The main proposals relate to the promotion of marriage, improving the provision of social infrastructure, changing the nature of financial support for families with children and support for unemployed parents. The application of the proposed measures will improve the quality of the mechanisms used in the country to increase the birth rate, as well as the demographic policy of the state as a whole. This contributes to the achievement of the goal of natural population growth.
