The article presents a methodology of complex tripartite assessment of unimplemented labor potential of the Russian regions in absolute, relative (as a percentage of labor potential) and index terms. The study suggests including all three groups of the non-employed individuals into the structure of unimplemented labor potential: 1) unemployed individuals; 2) economically inactive population expressing a willingness to be employed (according to the ILO terminology — potential labor force); 3) economically inactive population unwilling to work. Moreover, among the individuals excluded from the employment-age labor force we distinguish and analyze six categories, differentiating them by the degree of possible engagement in the regional economy: 1) full-time students, 2) pensioners, 3) persons managing households, 4) others who have not stated willingness to work, 5) persons who have stated willingness to work, are hunting for job, but not ready to start working and 6) persons who have stated willingness to work, but are not hunting for job. The novelty of the authors’ approach lies in taking into consideration these categories in calculating numerical index of unimplemented labor potential employing various weighting coefficients, reflecting the degree of readiness for inclusion into the  labor force. The economic sense of the proposed index is that it reflects the share of the non-employed population of working age, which is likely to be potentially involved into the labor force, i.e. creating the necessary conditions can lead to the employment of these individuals. The article gives a detailed description of the step-by-step algorithm for the suggested methodology and presents the results of its approbation.
