The importance of human resources for the region’s competitiveness and for the formation of its competitive advantages has increased during the postindustrial economic period and development of innovative activities. Human resources are one of key factors that can influence the region’s competitiveness. As a result, the problem of region’s human resources evaluation remains relevant, and also the problem of revealing the factors influencing the quantitative and qualitative characteristics of mentioned resources. Nowadays there are no indicators (neither theoretical nor practical ones) letting to evaluate the region’s provision with human resources for the future. The target of this research is the development of theoretical theses and practical recommendations on the regional human resources evaluation. According to the mentioned target of the research, the following tasks were set: to reveal the factors influencing quantitative and qualitative characteristics of the Volgograd region’s human resources, to create an accurate forecast of the population’s changes in the region, and to develop an indicator which could evaluate the region’s provision with human resources for the future.
