The paper focuses on the impact of recession on the population life quality and aims at its quantitative assessment in the regional (e. g., the regions of the Siberian Federal District) and temporal aspects (analytical database includes 2003 - 2013). The authors also consider the possibility of delay (lag) of the individual indicators and areas of life quality in response to the recession. The research methodology is based on a graphical analysis of dynamic trends of the statistics (27 quality of life indicators and 8 economic indicators). The results showed that the sagging economic and social indicators are not always synchronous and proportional to each other, on this basis it is possible to differentiate between the regions of the Siberian Federal District. Furthermore, the reaction of individual indicators of the quality of life and spheres occurs with time delays of different durations. It is necessary to take into account the regional authorities in the policy aimed at maintaining the quality of life in times of recession Keywords: quality of life, the crisis, the impact of regional policy, time lags.
