Yekaterinburg proves 11th best city for migrant workers

April 20, 2015. Yekaterinburg scored 11th in the rating of Russia’s most migrant workforce-appealing cities. RBC research involved cities with population of more than 150,000 people, the agency indicates.

This place in the rating means Yekaterinburg is one of those cities where the number of working people exceeds that of its residents: the figure currently stands at 103%.

‘Companies provide data on their employees’ income tax depending on where the company is located and regardless of where an employee’s residence address is. This means the more taxpayers there are in a city’s database, the more attractive the place is for migrant workers,’ Standard&Poor’s analyst Karen Vartapetov explains.

Almetyevsk (144%), Surgut (135%), Velikiy Novgorod (134%), Nizhniy Novgorod (128%), and Tambov (107%) were at the top of the rating.
