- The article substantiates the necessity of using cluster analysis methods in designing the strategy for the development of the agro-food complex at the regional level. A brief analysis of the foreign experience of using the cluster approach in the development of regional strategic planning programs is given. The algorithm of clusterization that allows allocating "reference" and "target" municipal entities of the region, based on indicators reflecting the volumes of production of agro-food products is presented. The results of clustering of municipal entities of the Republic of Bashkortostan by self-sufficiency of the population with basic food products are given. Because of clustering, the "standard" ("leaders") and "target" ("outsiders") municipal formations of the region are defined. Within the formed clusters, municipal formations that have "extreme" values of indicators of the volume of production of basic food products per capita have been identified. The practical significance of the research is that the proposed recommendations make it possible to solve problems on the development of food provision for the population of the region, the use of commodity food resources, and the improvement of inter-municipal food relations.
