In modern science, particular importance is given to improving approaches to identifying homogeneous territories according to industry specifics, allowing to take into account the specifics and patterns of socio-economic processes of similar groups of regions with the adoption of appropriate practical decisions. In the development of the theoretical and methodological foundations of the theory of regional economics in economic research, the tasks of overcoming the socio-economic differentiation of territories, improving the quality of the population, assessing the influence of factors on the level of wages are highlighted. Scientific work on the development of options for making managerial decisions when strategizing the development of Russia, taking into account the differentiation of the population of the regions by income level, and scenario studies are of particular relevance. The article examines the issue of assessing the homogeneity of industrial territories in the region using the Hoover index from the standpoint of the progressiveness of this direction of development of the theory and methodology of regional economics. To achieve this goal, the authors chose the methods of median and statistical analysis, which together made it possible to make calculations on the example of one of the industrial regions of the Russian Federation - the Perm Territory. The Hoover index was chosen as the assessment tool. Calculations have shown a directly proportional relationship between the population and the level of income of the population of the territories of the region, the larger the territory and the higher the level of industrial development, the higher the income of the richest residents; asymmetry in favor of the most industrially developed territories of the region, relative uniformity of incomes of the richest residents in other territories.
