Abstract. In this article, the authors propose to analyze the European Union's Strategy for Improving Living Conditions on a total, as well as in each country part of the Community. The European Commission considers the need to ensure respect for fundamental human rights, aiming to implement a program to ensure economic well-being and social cohesion. This article will devote a space of social inclusion that can be expressed by monetary or non-monetary indicators that highlight the danger of poverty risk that is different from one country to another. A number of countries have made significant progress in improving living conditions, with others experiencing even more negative aspects. To highlight these elements, the authors analyzed income levels and their distribution across Member States, ranking hierarchically on the basis of these indicators a number of countries where immediate action is needed to ensure a level playing field. The study highlights the inequality of revenue distribution, suggesting the need for important measures, especially in those countries where there are lagging behind. Concretely, an analysis is made of the existence of adequate incomes as a fundamental requirement for housing in all EU countries. And here are hierarchies that highlight the situation of each state. In the final part, the authors focus on the social protection that needs to be ensured by each country. On this background, an analysis of Romania's situation was carried out resulting in vigorous measures being taken under the heading of Living Conditions of the Population.

Keywords: social exclusion, at-risk-of-poverty rate, social protection, housing cost, criminality.
