In the conditions of dynamic changes taking place in the economy, the key factor in achieving sustainable development of the region is the availability of a developed strategy for the adaptation of the population. Since individual regions are systematically characterized by a lower level of adaptability of the population to changing conditions, it is important to study the existence and determine the closeness of the relationship between the level and pace of socio-economic development that determine the quality of life in the region and the ability of the population to adapt to changes in external factors.
The aim of the work is to develop theoretical approaches, the application of which will allow to provide effective support and assist the population in accelerating and improving the effectiveness of adaptation processes, to identify the features and specifics of the processes of adaptation of the population in different regions, to determine the cause-and-effect relationships between the level of development of the region, the quality of life of the population and its ability to adapt in the context of modern challenges and trends in the development of the economy and society. The most acceptable way to solve the tasks set in modern conditions is to use a comparative approach, which, in relation to the assessment of models and processes of adaptation of the population, allows taking into account both quantitative indicators of regional development and qualitative characteristics, which seems to help identify trends in regional development based on the reflection of the features of adaptation processes occurring in a similar or similar situation and external conditions.
To solve these problems, the implementation of a comparative approach is proposed in relation to the study of the processes of adaptation of the population, the conditions for the application of the considered approach are highlighted, and the authors have also developed the procedure for applying a comparative approach to the study of the processes of adaptation of the population.
The research methodology includes a review of domestic and foreign literature, their critical analysis, systematization of the results obtained. The use of the results of the work is possible when assessing and predicting adaptation processes in a particular territory. The directions of future research are related to the development of practical recommendations for solving the existing problems of adaptation of the population to dynamically changing conditions.

Keywords: population adaptation processes, adaptation models, comparative approach, structure and types of comparative approach, dynamic changes in the economy.
