Elitogenesis in Russia: geographical aspect

P.L. Popov

The birthplace differentiation for representatives of different groups of the Russian elite is considered for macroregions, subjects of the RF and cities. It is shown that in the elite groups under consideration, the proportions of natives of Moscow and Saint Petersburg exceed several times the proportions of natives of these cities in the country’s population. The other large cities, especially Yekaterinburg, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Nizhni Novgorod, Ufa, Saratov, Voronezh, Irkutsk, Omsk, and Rostov-on-Don, are centers of elitogenesis vastly excelled by the two capital cities. The differences between macroregions without regard for Moscow and Saint Petersburg are significant in separate aspects of elitogenesis.
