Turkey -Income equality and risk of poverty -September 02, 2013

The country profile on the quality of life published by Eurofound and based on the third European Quality of Life Survey (EQLS, 2012) reports on living conditions, housing, local environment, health, public services, social cohesion and quality of society, as well as subjective well-being. With 23% of the population living at risk of poverty in 2011, as reported by the official statistics, the country comes second worst in this respect among the 34 countries covered by the EQLS. The Gini coefficient, a measure of income inequality, was 40.4 according to the country’s national statistical office (and 42 using income information from the EQLS, 2012). This is well above the EU27 average of 30.7 reported by Eurostat.
