The paper introduces the results of a statistical analysis of two components of depopulation, movement through migration and the natural growth of population in the European part of the Russian Federation during the period 1990-2010. The analysis also involves a breakdown by nationality, which is seen to be a driver of quantitative change. A typology analysis is presented with consideration given to trends to demographic growth or decline. The outcome of an analysis via Webb’s typology [если кто в курсе -- что это такое? дайте знать, пож] indicates that depopulation occurs due to natural decline with an increasing role of migration as a driver of depopulation.
