ABSTRACT
The article discusses the formation of the population's income in the Republic of Azerbaijan. It enumerates the different sources of the population's incomes including pay for labor, income from self-employment, entrepreneurial activity, income from property and social payments from the state budget. It shows that the conditions of the formation of incomes and consumption are influenced by the oil sector. Moreover, the people's incomes and the demand for goods and services are affected by processes of migration and the volume of monetary resources that are being brought in from other republics in the form of wages and salaries.
