Ukraine’s strategic course for integration into the European community requires efficient management decisions at both the national and regional levels, the use of existing economic capacity, and gaining competitive advantages in all public development domains. Accordingly, the importance of the social component is constantly growing due to the fact that the existence of the state is closely linked to the extent to which it meets the needs of the general population. Increasingly, governments of different countries face the need to modernize social models in order to achieve reasonable, sustainable, and comprehensive development of the state as a whole and each of its regions individually. The article forms a system of indicators that characterize the level of modernization of social services and impact the processes of sustainable development. In the course of the research conducted across the regions of Ukraine, the basic indicators influencing the process of providing social services were summarized, and the leading regions and those that need special attention were identified. In addition, the need for constant monitoring of the components of the social services modernization level is justified. The efficiency of the state regional policy aimed at solving social problems and ensuring the achievement of appropriate living standards, etc. depends on comprehensive consideration of the systemic action of a set of social factors that determine it, and the use of a complete and representative system of indicators to assess this area at the level of economic development. The system of indicators to assess the real state of social services will help to improve resource management to modernize funding principles, clearly define target groups in this domain, and outline the most priority areas of its development, progressive changes in the proportion of labor, and inclusive spatial development of productive forces of Ukraine.
