DIFFERENTIATION OF SOCIO-ECONOMICAL ENVIRONMENT AS FACTORS OF REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT (THE CASE STUDY OF MURMANSK REGION, RUSSIA)
The inequality of the socio-economic space of the regions is a significant problem for the management of the regional development of any country. The objective nature of the issue of unequal socio-economic development, the lack of unified regulation approaches and methods determine not only the practical meaning but also the scientific interest in considering the specific manifestation of this problem on particular objects. The paper illustrates the problem of differentiation in the socio-economic space of one Russian region by the data on the Murmansk region, the subject of the Russian Arctic zone. To analyze the situation the authors used integrated assessments, the relative strength index for each of the assessment indicators, and the Gini index. The authors have revealed the specifics in unequal socio-economic development of the Murmansk region and the stable trends on the basis of which have developed recommendations for managing the regional social and economic development.
