Abstract
In the conditions of long-continued reduction of the working-age population size in Russia, researchers and practitioners are in search for ways to compensate demographic losses. One of the ways is the increase the labour force participation rate for certain socio-demographic groups of the population. The article examines the reserves and opportunities for expanding the involvement of young people, older persons, women with underage children in the workforce.
