Abstract

The article analyses the influence of human capital on populations income in Russian regions. Extended Cobb-Douglas production function has been used to estimate the influence of educational level on citizens income. Regional statistical data for 2003-2012 have been used to calculate spatial regressions. Conducted macroeconomic research showed a positive correlation between average monthly wage, income and consumer spending per person in regional economy having an average educational level. The research also showed a negative correlation between life expectancy and average monthly wage and a positive correlation between average income and consumer spending per person.
