Therefore, the authors of the article Use the Budget Survey, of Turkish Householders conducted by Turkish Statistical Institute for the year 2003. The authors' sample was constituted by 25,507 households. Low risk households were differentiated from the others by focusing on the ones that have not only positive income-expense balance but also no Outstanding debt.
