Objectives: The main objective of this study is to analyze the multidimensional aspects of poverty in the case of Albania, to explore and identify the individual factors or characteristics that determine the state of poverty, in order to propose programs and targeted policies according to the region and according to individual and family characteristics.

Prior Work: A considerable amount of studies have focused on the determinants of poverty in order to better understand the dimensions and structure of poverty. While income/expenditure has been shown to influence subjective perceptions of poverty, other characteristics such as family size, employment status, and region have also been shown to be important and are also the focus of this study.

Approach: The study relies mainly on primary data supplemented and supported by secondary data. Primary data were collected through surveys using structured questionnaires and consultation with experts in the field. Secondary data were obtained from various publications such as books and websites.

Results: The results of the econometric model showed that household size and residence are the factors that affect the well-being of the households in the sample.

Implications: In accordance with the results of this study, policy makers and organizations can initiate policies that target the regions and social groups with the greatest problems.

Value: the binary model used in this study is a usefultool for analysis, policy-making, and monitoring purposes. It allows understanding of the factors that determine poverty and identification of vulnerable household groups. The results obtained should be used in the development of effective social policies.
