The article analyzes the dynamics of growth in the number and share of the rural population of the Guba-Khachmaz economic and geographical region for 1989-2019. As a result of a sociological survey conducted in villages, the factors influencing the standard of living of the rural population and its demographic development were studied, a grouping was carried out according to the size and structure of the population, and relevant tables, maps and graphs were compiled. It has been established that the economic crisis, which forced the population to leave their homes in the early 1990s, created a negative balance of migration and reduced the natural population growth in rural areas.
