Muscovites Became Older and More Educated

The results of the Russian Census 2010 showed that the average Muscovite is now older and more educated in comparison with the census in 2002. 

      According to the recent census, Moscow's population is 11,5 million which is an 8.1 percent share of Russia’s population. The average age of Muscovite is 40,7 years, while in 2002 it was 39,3 years. 

      The share of people with a university degree in the Russian capital increased by 53 percent between 2002 and 2010, according to Andrei Sharonov, a deputy mayor. There are 198 thousands candidates of science living in Moscow now (85 thousands of them are women).

      The official also said that the number of people able to work increased by eight percent compared with 2002, mainly due to the influx of immigrants.  In 2002 it was 4,85 million working people, and in 2010 this amount increased to 6,2 million. Though the number foreign workers increased by 20% for the last year, the real number of immigrants in Moscow is still unknown.

      Another important result of the census - there are 800 thousands women more that men in Moscow. In 2002 this difference was twice less! So men in Moscow are still in a big deficit.
