Population: 13,790 (2002 Census); 15,803 (1989 Census); 13,800 (1968). Males make up 46.7% of the population (6,439), females—53.3% (7,351).

History

Arti was founded in 1783 when merchant Lugin built a mechanical plant in the area. During the 19th century the majority of the population was employed by this plant. The plant's products were held in high regard not only in Russia—scythes produced in Arti, for example, received an award at the Paris technical exhibition. In 1917, the plant became one of the first to be nationalized.

Arti is also known for the first Ural Geophysical Station, which was established there in 1870.

In 1918, Arti was a place of an anti-Soviet rebellion, during which many people were killed.

After the end of the Russian Civil War, Arti remained the only producer of scythes in the whole country.

During the World War II, the plant started to manufacture sewing machines and needles.

Modern times

Nowadays Arti is a rapidly developing settlement, where the majority of its economic growth is in the sphere of services.

Unemployment rate is rather low (3.02%). Twenty percent of the unemployed are people with higher education as there is practically no vacant positions for them in Arti at the moment.
