Republic of Macedonia as a country in development is presented with a serious challenge into decreasing the income inequality witch has risen for average 4% annually over the past 15 years, according to the GINI index. Socio-economic inequality can be represented as major problem for a developing country, and must be considered as one of main priorities for increasing the economic development in the following years. Many factors can be targeted as to influence the socio-economic segregation, one of them being the social protection program.
