Economic growth is one of the main economic goals for all countries in the world. The fair distribution of income generated by economic growth among all social classes is one of the most important problems of development that has not yet been fully solved. The problem of inequitable distribution of income is a problem faced by all countries in general and leads to similar problems in developed and underdeveloped countries. The problems arisen as a result of not achieving a fair distribution of the income obtained also lead to bigger problems. As a result, poverty is an important socio-economic problem. When the economies are analyzed in general, it is seen that income distribution injustice and poverty levels are intensely related to each other. For this reason, the policies carried out for the purpose of economic development are considered as strategic targets by combating poverty and achieving a fair structure of income distribution. This study, in the period after 2000 in Turkey, Turkey's poverty and income inequality using data statistics revealed by the indicators applied in the same period aims to analyze the success of social policy. In the analysis, it was seen that the studies aimed at closing the gap in income distribution especially after 80 gave successful results, but socio-economic policies implemented within the scope of struggle against poverty gave results at relative levels. In general, an evaluation was made within the framework of the findings and it was observed that there was a relative success in the areas of poverty and income distribution.
