Determinants of deprivation in Turkey, a logistic regression analysis

The main goal of this paper is to analyse factors which increase the probability of becoming poor, as well as to estimate which characteristics raises the risk of becoming poor. We use a logit model, which is a flexible way to seek determinants of a phenomena. None of the poverty literature denies the role of education and employment status in becoming poor. However, we test the contribution of other explanatory variables to look at poverty from different approaches. Deprivation index will be used as measure of poverty.
