Current migration processes in the Far East (on the example of Jewish Autonomous Oblast)
AbstractThe purpose of this work is to explore the dynamics of migration processes and to analyze constant and labour migration dynamics in the Jewish Autonomous Oblast (JAO) within 1993â€“2008. It is shown in the paper that from 1993 to 2002 the reason of migration processes dynamics are the changes in international migration statistics and from 2003 till present time â€” the changes in interdistrict migration statistics. Hiring of foreign workers in the JAO is characterized by a high proportion of migrants from the People's Republic of China (PRC). Weighted average estimation of composite indicators for JAO migration security is in the area of a threatening crisis due to a long-present interdistrict migration decline. The reason for security level increase in the oblast is stabilization and immigration growth in the oblast.
