Human capital is a key factor in the region's competitive edge and the base for its economic growth and social development. Therefore, the study of human capital assessment parameters, as well as social conditions forming and developing human potential is relevant for management systems. The authors suggest an approach to analyzing the state of human potential formation environment based on the assessment of the behavioral indicators of social deprivation. The behavioral indicators of social deprivation stand for the statistics characterizing deviant behaviors of people. The higher these indicators are, the more difficult are the living conditions in a certain territory due to the high proportion of residents with antisocial values. The most informative statistics describing these parameters include the crime rate, homicide and suicide rates, as well as alcohol consumption, drug abuse, and social orphanhood. The advantage of the suggested indicators is their unambiguous interpretation. The suggested approach was tested on the data from the regions of the Far East of Russia taking into account the goals of Russian national policies aiming the accelerated social and economic development of this macroregion. The analysis of the behavioral indicators of social deprivation and their dynamics is an informative tool for the assessment of human capital preservation conditions and the region's human potential development. Monitoring indicators can provide goals for the further study of causal links that condition the problems in the region.
