An Investigation of Factors Affecting the Frequency of Helping Beggars: The Case of Erzurum Province
Beggary has emerged with the history of humanity and has been influential in most cultures. Beggary is a social problem that is ever-increasingly visible in Turkey. Beggars who are frequently encountered in everyday life, especially in the main roads and streets of cities, hospital and mosque entrances, transportation venues, underpasses and overpasses, are becoming a problem that is nestling increasingly. In this scope, the aim in this study was to investigate how frequently the people of Erzurum helped beggars by addressing how they made sense of the concept of beggary, how they saw beggars and how they perceived beggary. As of the time frame of the questionnaire used in the study, 4,6% of people never helped beggars. Of the participants, 79,8% helped beggars occasionally, and 15,6% helped beggars always. In this study, the frequency of helping beggars and the factors affecting this frequency were investigated based on the opinions of the people of Erzurum by using ordered logistic regression analysis. According to the results of the predicted model, marital status, age, educational status and types of beggars were found to be effective in the frequency of helping beggars. Furthermore, the following statements about the perception of beggary were also found to be effective in the study: the reason for begging was desperation, beggary was a crime, beggary was a social problem, everyone who begged was really beggars, and I would not believe what beggars said when they begged. Singles were less likely to always help beggars than married people. High school graduates were found to be less likely to always help beggars than university graduates. People aged 31–45 years and 46 years or older were more likely to help beggars at all times than those aged 18–30 years.
