According to the results of a sample survey, data about place of work of the employed population of Bashkortostan are formed by Rosstat (Federal State Statistics Service).

As Bashkortostan Statistics Agency representatives explain, in Russia, as in most countries of the UNO, government statistics bodies conduct a survey on employment and unemployment using the methodology of the International Labour Organization.

“1.7 thousand respondents are surveyed monthly in Bashkortostan Republic — about 21 thousand per year,” Svetlana Kurbanova, the head of department of Bashkortostan Statistics Agency said.

According to her, in 2012 136 thousand people residing in the territory of Bashkortostan, or 7.1 percent of total employed population were occupied in the territory of other subjects of the country.

Compared to the year 2011, an increase in interregional labour migration is observed in Bashkortostan. Thus, in 2011, 113 thousand inhabitants of Bashkortostan worked outside the republic.

For example, in 2012 86.7 thousand residents of Bashkortostan found work in the Tyumen region, or 63.7 percent of total emigrants, 7.1 thousand (5.2 percent) found jobs in the regions of the Volga Federal District. 6.2 percent of total emigrants are employed in Moscow and Moscow region, 6.7 percent in the Sverdlovsk region, 7.4 percent in the Chelyabinsk region.
