The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of population migration on its socio-demographic structure in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation. In the article, the authors attempted to quantify this impact, based on existing statistics on municipalities, reflecting migration processes and the socio-demographic structure of the population over the past ten years. During the study, methods of mathematical statistics were used to identify the relationships: approximations and correlation and regression analysis. In assessing the extent of the impact of migration on the socio-economic development of the Arctic territories, they turned to methods of interregional analysis and typologies. The obtained results confirmed hypothetical ideas based on qualitative research methods on the existence of interconnections between the arrived and the retired population and the change in the socio-demographic structure of the population on the territory of the country's Arctic municipalities. The authors found that the influence of migration processes is very differentiated in the Arctic regions of Russia. The most significant relationship is observed in remote municipalities of the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and the Krasnoyarsk Territory, and the lack of communication is in the Murmansk Region. There is also a noticeable and high tightness of the relationship between the newcomer and the departed population and the birth rate in these territo-ries and in the municipalities of the Republic of Karelia and the Chukotka Autonomous Region. Consideration of the results obtained during the development and adjustment of program and strategic documents in the field of demographic development and regulation of population migration in the Russian Arctic will contribute to the preservation, accumulation and development of human potential in the Arctic.

Keywords: Arctic zone of the Russian Federation, mi-gration, municipalities, population, factors, socio-demographic structure.
