It has defined a series of indicators by which inclusion can be assessed in each of the identified areas. The article has constructed the integral index of social inclusion and explains the possibilities of its practical use in public administration. It identifies the problems that arise when trying to calculate such an integral index of inclusion and outlines the possible ways of solving them.
