Structural and dynamic analysis of the staff potential of Russian science in 2010-2020

Statistical analysis of the personnel potential of Russian science, its state, emerging trends is an integral part of the monitoring system for the development of civil science in Russia. Study of the structure of the personnel potential of Russian science, its dynamics, factors of change: the influx of researchers, especially young scientists, into Russian science is today the most pressing problem of the statistical analysis of science. The comprehensive study of the state and development of the human resources potential of Russian science using statistical methodology aimed not only to quantify it, identify proportions, relationships and dependencies, but also to develop, based on its results, specific proposals to overcome the negative proportions that have developed in the human resources potential of Russian science. for 2010-2020 The main results of the study of the personnel potential of science are as follows: the trends towards a decrease in the number of personnel potential in terms of researchers for 2010-2020 have been revealed. on average annually by 224 people or by 0,4%, including for 2015-2020. The decrease in the total number of all researchers with and without a degree was 1,8% (per 6583 people) annually, incl. candidates of sciences by 2,2% (for 1767 people); doctors of sciences — by 2,7% (for 715 people); The age structure of the personnel potential has not changed compared to 2010. The proposed methodology for analyzing the structure of the human resources potential of Russian science can serve as the basis for the development of the author's methodology for quantitatively measuring the cost of human capital at the industry level in relation to the field of science

Keywords: personnel potential; human capital, structure of personnel potential, indices of structural shifts, dynamics indicators.
