We have studied current economic and demographic characteristics of quality of life in the Baikal Region in the context of resource development type of the region’s economy and essential limitations of environmental management in the specially protected territories in the Lake Baikal catchment area. The scientific problem of the study consists in the interconnected consideration of socio-economic development and certain aspects of quality of life in the Baikal Region, namely the level average income and average life expectancy at birth. The existing economic situation exerts its influence on quality of people’s life directly through their incomes which are strongly differentiated in territory, so the income index varies fourfold between municipalities (areas, urban districts).
