The article deals with the analysis of the processes of human capital development in the context of the introduction of digital technologies in the Federation subjects. The hypothesis of the study is the assumption that the human capital accumulating in the regions has a decisive influence on the formation of conditions and prerequisites for the active introduction of digital technologies. The complexity of the proof lies in the lack of the sufficient amount of required statistics. The base for research methodology is the use of statistical and comparative analysis methods. Based on their application, the state of higher and secondary education in Russia for the period from 2000 to 2018 is analyzed, then a comparison is made with the number of specialists of higher and secondary levels working in the digital economy of the Russian Federation in the whole. The assessment of the main indicators of the digital economy development in the federal districts of the Russian Federation made it possible to establish significant differences in the use of various types of digital technologies, which allowed ranking the territories. A further analysis of the formation and development of human capital by sectors of the economy revealed its highest rate in education, healthcare and culture. In manufacturing, the accumulation of this capital turned out to be 2 times lower, and in construction - 4 times lower. An assessment of the use of digital innovations in the Russian Federation and the Central Federal District showed that all areas of the use of digital products are showing growth. The analysis made possible to draw a conclusion about the priority influence of the education level of human capital on the state of general digitalization of the regional economies.
