Energy poverty and health: the Turkish case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Energy poverty is significantly correlated with various health measures. This study investigates the links between energy poverty and health outcomes in Turkey. A nationally representative household survey is employed to provide empirical evidence for the relationship between a health status index and a self-reported energy poverty indicator. Multi-level model estimation results imply that energy poverty is negatively associated with health level of individuals. House conditions such as physical deficiencies and insulation problems display negative correlations with health status. Moreover, empirical findings reveal that the health statuses of individuals are essentially related to demographics and household-level factors rather than regional-level variables.
