The characteristic features of social protection models in European countries have been clarified.

The absence of geographical indications in a situation of relative poverty is proved. There is a general decrease in differentiation among the poor, and the approach of its income (expenditure) to the poverty line against the background of increasing the value of the poverty line by all monetary criteria, as well as increasing the relative poverty line on the European Union equivalence scale.
