The authors estimate them by calculating the partial indices for four statistical indicators: mortality in the working age, number of persons with higher education, number of individual entrepreneurs and in-migration. The developed method is tested on the basis of the Vologda Oblast statistical data. The article reveals the results of the partial and integral indices calculation; the specially compiled map clearly shows the main problems and features of the labor potential distribution in the region, in particular: increased values of the labor potential index in the areas near large cities and in the direction of the Vologda -Veliky Ustyug highway, reduced labor potential in the areas located far from the regional center and major highways.
