Considers indicators of health, housing and homelessness, functional illiteracy and innumeracy, access to essential services, financial precariousness, and social participation. These are all potentially important fields that are not covered by the European Commission's original proposals. In each case, the interest is in indicators relevant to social inclusion. Homelessness, e.g. is clearly a major reason for concern about social exclusion. In the case of health, however, it is not mortality as such that is of concern, but differential mortality according to socioeconomic or other characteristics, and the impact that poor health or disability has in exacerbating social exclusion.

Keywords:   access to essential services, differential mortality, EU, financial precariousness, functional illiteracy, functional innumeracy, health, homelessness, housing, illiteracy, innumeracy, social exclusion, social inclusion, social indicators, social participation
