The Williamson index (WI) is generally utilized to measure the regional socioeconomic inequality. The parameter of fiscal capacity per capita is theoretical foundation of measurement. By using the desk based research, the extended version of WI measurement model was constructed. Based on WI that is as a basic method to measure the regional’s economical gap, parameters education and health were embedded inside. Another method fuzzylogic was used as well to hypothetically prioritize the parameters involved. Thus, the proposed measurement model will be able to methodically quantify either both or combination of both education and health inequalities of regional (urban village).Paper represents the construction of proposed model (based on fuzzy index)that is possible able to examine the region inequality. The empirical data coming from case study in urban village Sawah, Ciputat (Indonesia) were used to realize the measurement.
