Abstract: Test of Gibrat and Zipf laws, performed on the base of All-Russian Population Census of 2010 data, have shown that in the Volga Federal District regions the people territorial distribution does not conform to these laws. In all regions significant distortion in people territorial distribution is observed and a significant part of them lives in capitals, and also the half of regions population lives in several large cities (from 1 to 10). At the same time, there is no significant people movement from one region to another.
