Using factor, typological, correlation and regression analytical methods, we determined statistically significant correlations between the mortality rates among working age Sverdlovsk Region citizens and socio-economic indicators (the standards of living accommodation, healthcare quality, the level of social tension, dependency ratio) as well as comparing the increases in these indicators, taking into account the various time periods. We identified the influence of purchasing power on the mortality rates among working age people and assessed the economic damage to health due to premature death among working age people which is probabilistically associated with the impact of socio-economic factors. We identified the major directions for further work to ensure management decision-making by Russian regional executive authorities, local self-governing bodies and by the institutions of the Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-Being Surveillance, to ensure health and epidemiological well-being of the population.
