Abstract

The article described basic economic factors which determined the demographic dynamics of population of the East-Ukrainian regions during the second half of 1940th. The quantitative indexes of increase of population during a post-war period and scales of moving of shots are lighted up in industry. It is emphasized that the concentration of workers in the industrial regions signifi cantly affected the demographic dynamics of the population changed its social and ethnic composition and age structure. It is proved that the economic situation in the USSR, continuing the policy of economic isolation and development of military-industrial complex needs dictate growth industry of the republic in the hands of new jobs, and, given the then low level of mechanization and automation, it became the number one need in the demographic policy. The introduction of new production facilities Ukrainian industry immediately absorbed a signifi cant amount of rural youth. A substantial part of migration occurred as the result of state coercion.
