The paper presents the results of a study of territorial clusters of a macro-region by applying the multidimensional analysis methods – principal component analysis and cluster analysis – to data on the life quality of municipal territories in the Krasnoyarsk region. In the context of life quality indicators, the key characteristics and features of the existing territorial clusters of the region are identified. Based on the analysis of the actual values of the indicators and the calculated integral assessments of the life quality, the territories were clustered, and the principles for distribution of municipal territories by clusters were determined. The results of the study made it possible to identify the features and conditions for the development of municipal territories, to identify problematic and promising directions of the economy and social sphere of the macro-region, which allow more efficient planning and implementation of strategic actions to improve the life quality in the territories of the Krasnoyarsk region using the advantages of the cluster approach.
