Abstract

The article is devoted to the territorial distribution of single-industry towns, which, on the one hand, are large centers for the placement of industry, on the other, concentrations of socioeconomic problems. The purpose of the study is to identify the spatial features of the distribution of single-industry towns, taking into account the “hidden” single-industry towns. The authors propose to consider “hidden” single-industry towns, those whose share of the single-industry is not visible in statistics, or whose city-forming enterprise is in bankruptcy. Based on the involvement of microdata in 2013–2017, the authors propose six groups of single-industry towns. We consider the Kemerovo region case study and conclude the key features of the development of Russian single-industry towns in comparison to international experience: the participation of Internet technologies in the formation of interaction networks, the prevalence of competition for federal funding over the construction of networks of intercity interaction, geographical factor, and the strong influence of the path dependence.
