The study addresses the issue of urban poverty, with the aim of comparing the situation in towns and cities in the Slovak Republic and classifying them into several categories. For this purpose, the authors use statistical and administrative indicators rela-ted to the income situation of households, housing deprivation, the presence of socially excluded communities and risk demographic structure. These indicators allow the capture of the incidence of urban poverty in all towns and cities in Slovakia and thus extend the analytical perspectives which have been used until now. A hierarchical cluster analysis is employed in order to classify towns and cities in Slovakia into categories differing by risk of poverty, deprivation and social exclusion. The results show that four clusters can be distinguished. The cluster with the highest risk (the fourth cluster) contains mainly towns from the region of Banská Bystrica and Košice. It doesn’t include any towns from three regions – Bratislava, Trenčín and Žilina. Towns in the cluster with the most risk poverty profile belong to small or medium sized towns of Slovakia.
