As to work capacity of the population, the highest from this point of view was potential of a country economy of Nonchernozem region, the most part (62,4 %) all peasantry and the considerable part (49,8 %) cash which country population was made by able-bodied population. The real potential of a country manpower was influenced also by a parity of the man's and female population. The essential loss to a manpower was put by a general compulsory military service. The share left in army (44,5 %) in sredne-Chernozemnom region where the share of the man's population prevailed also was especially considerable.
