Abstract: Abstract The article considers methodological approaches to the typology of Russian Federation municipalities and it’s practical application in spatial policy. The proposed typology is based on two groups of criteria: municipalities’ position in settlement pattern and economic structure, estimated via employment structure. The study is based on lower-level territorial division data. The article defines the term “agglomeration” important for settlement pattern studies. As a result, each municipality was classified according to it’s socioeconomic and spatial trajectory. It makes possible to estimate the spatial inequality of socioeconomic development at the municipal level. Factors affecting the trajectory of this development was assumed it the article. The results make it possible to consider the specifics of territories for effective policy. Focus transition to the level of municipalities makes it possible to take into account the potential of territories to develop effective spatial policy measures at the federal and regional levels and open additional opportunities for the results evaluation.
