Abstract   |   Authors   |   References
The article considers the influence of value orientations and living standards on reproductive intentions according to the data of a sociological survey conducted in 2022 in the Tyumen Oblast (without autonomous districts). The respondents’ structures by age groups, education level, marital status and number of children born (by age groups) are close to those obtained from the 2020 census. The Tyumen Oblast is characterized by one of the highest birth rates in Russia, and probably not related to the national features. The aim of the study is to analyze the determination of reproductive behavior in Russia’s region with a relatively high birth rate. The research results show that reproductive orientations are significantly lower in younger generations of respondents. Partly, this is probably due to the fact that the importance of individualism is predominant among young people compared to marriage and family. Value orientations not only largely determine reproductive orientations, but also determine how people evaluate certain life circumstances in terms of hindrances to childbirth. Correct study of the relationship between living standards and reproductive orientations implies its differentiation by the value of the desired number of children, which affects the expected number of children significantly more than living standards. While in relation to the birth of the second child about half of the respondents note some influence of state support on the decision to give birth, in relation to the first and third child, the share of such respondents is much smaller. However, among those, whose first child was born in 2020–2022 (when the federal maternity (family) capital at the birth of the first child began being provided), the share of those, who noted one or another impact of assistance from the state, is 60.2% for women and 37.7% for men
