Abstract

Nowadays Russia is under the economic reforms due to postindustrial development. The successful realization of this process requires elaborating how the population reacts on the reforms. The article is devoted to exploring the macroeconomic factors that influence on the mortality of the working-age population and are under the control of government. We obtained the indicators that characterize the dynamics of social and economic development. Then, they were divided into four groups such as macroeconomics, incomes, public health service, and disease rate. The statistical operations permitted to transform the indicators in every group in an integrated figure. Then the researchers conducted a regression analysis of the integrated figures and the mortality rates of the working-age population that proved the hypothesis of the research: the macroeconomic situation strongly influences the mortality rates of the working-age population. The obtained results should eliminate those fields of governmental policy being crucial for decreasing the mortality rates and, thus, for developing the human capital of Russia.
