Abstract

This study aimed to determine the effects of socio-economic variables on poverty. For this purpose; education, working population ratio, the national income according to purchasing power parity, the inflation rate and the net wage effect on poverty for selected eight EU countries between 2006-2015 were analyzed using the fixed effect model, the random effects model, the pooled regression model and the generalized method of moments of the panel data methods. It is reached that while the national income has poverty reduction effect in all models according to purchasing power parity, education has poverty reduction effect in other models except the fixed effects model. Inflation and working population ratio do not seem to have an impact on poverty.
