Population and its reproduction is necessary attribute of the existence of the state. The process of depopulation generates economic problems, leading to a decrease in the state's geopolitical status. The purpose of this study was to study the attitude of student youth towards demographic policy in modern Russia. The study involved students of universities and colleges of St. Petersburg (N=109+97=206, 68% females; aged about 20 years). Attitudes of students to the demographic policy of the Russian Federation and were assessed by author's multi factorial questionnaires (Deyneka, 2013). Attitude to children as a condition for the reproduction of the population studied using method of ranking associations. The validity and reliability of the methods used were tested. The results showed a generally favorable, but somewhat contradictory attitude to demographic policy and the state. Students believe that measures to stimulate the state fertility are not enough. At the same time, the idea of peoples saving as a national idea of modern Russia received serious support among students. The attitude to the family and children turned out to be more traditional than relying on postmodern values. The material factor plays an important role in the students’ plans for their future self-realization as parents.
