|The article presents an original approach to evaluation of migration processes in the context of COVID-19 pandemic, based on the analysis of the so-called “main generation,” i.e., people between 20 and 40 years old – a group most active economically, socially and demographically. The authors focus on the migration outflow of the “main generation” in the Urals and the Volga Federal okrugs, with regard to differentiation related to their socio-economic development, represented by the “center-periphery” model. The article distinguishes regions of the center, periphery and semi-periphery. The share of migration among the representatives of the “main generation” is 1,5 – 1,6 times higher than the average in the total population. The article distinguishes specificities of migration of the “main generation” from the regions of each group. Migration from the periphery regions is steadily higher as compared to the regions of semi-periphery and the center. The authors demonstrate the difference of the level of the “main generation” in the regions of the center and periphery, and establish the general features of the migration outflow within each group. Results of the research can be used by the organs of the state power for improving the demographic, migration and education polities, as well as for regulation of the labor market.|
