According to a study by oneFactor, a developer of services based on machine learning technologies, more than 12% of Russians have changed their place of permanent residence throughout the country since the beginning of the self-isolation regime , but in the cities with over one million people the percentage of those who left is higher and reaches 19%.
According to RIA Novosti news agency, most of the residents left the oil and gas production areas in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug (Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region). In particular, the Khanty-Mansiysk municipal district of the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Region left up to 40% of those who were there at the time the self-isolation regime was introduced, a similar situation has developed in other Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrugs.
From the cities, the first wave of people leaving was in late March. According to the Center for Traffic Management (DPC), from March 27 to 29 , on the eve of the first non-working week announced by the Russian president, half a million cars left Moscow and did not return to the city. We can assume that more than 850 thousand people got out of Moscow then or approximately 6.7% of the population of the capital. The second factor in changing the place of permanent residence was the summer season, which began in May holidays.
Among the million-plus cities, most of the population left these days Ufa, where a quarter of the population left. Second and third places were shared by Moscow and St. Petersburg, which left just over 20% of the population, and even 26% of the population left some regions, for example, Moskvorechye-Saburovo in the capital and the Balkan District in St. Petersburg. Least of all residents went to their summer cottages from Omsk, where only 10% of the inhabitants went out of town.
Among those regions whose residents basically remained in their homes, in the first places of the republic of the North Caucasus. Less than 5% of residents of Ingushetia, Chechnya, North Ossetia-Alania and Kabardino-Balkaria have changed their place of residence.
