Assessment of social tension as one of the main threats of social security of a region, its causes and consequences and regularities of development is a topical task of interdisciplinary studies. Analysis of theoretical studies testifies to the absence of a common methodological approach to formation of the scientific and methodical basis of assessment and development of the system of indicators, which characterise the level of social tension in regions. The article offers an economic and mathematical model that allows formation of justified sets of private indicators and obtain a rating assessment of the level of social tension in Ukrainian regions. The studies showed that the growth of social tension is linked with the unsatisfactory criminal and ecological situation, inability of the population to pay for utilities in time due to a low level of income and untimely payment of wages. The high level of tension is observed in industrially developed eastern regions of Ukraine.
