All agree that evaluation of poverty in all dimensions - not only income-related one - is the most proper way of measuring this extremely complex phenomenon. Therefore, there are taken steps to measure and examine many other dimensions of poverty. For example, the system of Laeken indicators of poverty and social exclusion in the EU countries serves this purpose. A reasonable way taken into account the multidimensional concept of poverty is aggregation (combining) various dimensions in one index. This article shows that an alternative to the use of single measures of poverty may be a measure constructed on the grounds of information relating to various aspects of poverty, of income, housing conditions, health and education
