Pension payments, social transfers, and income inequality in Turkey: How important is the gender dimension?

Topic: J3. Wages, Compensation, and Labor Costs D6. Welfare Economics J1. Demographic Economics


Status:
ongoing Project


The main purpose of this project is to determine the extent to which social transfers and pension payments have an impact on income inequality and the incidence of poverty in Turkey. Using descriptive and econometric analyses, this research identifies the amounts of various types of income received by households, distinguishes between the incomes of male and female household members, and examines the gender dimension of the research question. The findings of this research might point to the importance of the continued economic activity of women in terms of social justice. Also, by quantifying the contribution of social transfers to inequality, concrete empirical evidence of whether social policies of the government have had an impact on political outcomes will be present.
