The article substantiates the necessity to create a simulation model of the labor market, analyzes the latest publications on the topic "Simulation modeling of the labor market". The concept of simulation modeling, formulated by different authors, is considered. The main types of simulation modeling of complex systems are identified. The work describes the criteria of the software product used to create a simulation model of the labor market, justified the choice in favor of the AnyLogic software environment. Also in the article is the creation and analysis of the agent-oriented labor market model of the Altai region, which reflects the current state of the labor market under consideration. As a result of the research, a model of the labor market of the Altai region was obtained, and it... its scenario analysis was carried out within the framework of conservative, innovative and forced scenarios.
