Development of municipal areas in Republic Mordovia

Keywords: municipal areas, sustainable development, inequality, inclusive development, economic growth.


The purpose of the study is to assess the indicators for 2018 that characterize the levels of economic development of municipal districts of the Republic of Mordovia. The study was based on the modeling of socio-economic indicators using normal distribution functions. An assessment of relative indicators for 22 municipal districts was carried out. Three groups of municipal districts were formed using cluster analysis. It is proposed to use inclusive models for the effective development of municipal districts. Our research has shown that there is differentiation according to the most important indicators, therefore, further development of the considered areas will significantly improve the quality and standard of living in rural areas, as well as increase the investment potential of such territories and attractiveness for living and agricultural development.
