Although there are publicly provided survivors’ benefits to the single-mother households in Turkey, only a single source of income categorize these households under low-income families. The aim of this project is to empirically analyze the effect of survivors’ benefits on poverty indicators of single-mother households in Turkey. It, also, investigates whether survivors’ benefits promote health status of women and children in these families. The study uses three different surveys: Cross-Sectional Income and Living Conditions Survey of Turkey -2006-2012, Panel Income and Living Conditions Survey of Turkey -2009-2012, and Cross Sectional Health Survey of Turkey -2010, 2012.
