This study examines the validity and reliability of the Perceptions of Adequacy of Resources inventory--developed for American society--in a sample from Turkey and determines the correlations between perceived adequacy of resources and selected socioeconomic and family composition characteristics in Turkey. Participants of this study consist of employees and students at the central campus of the Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey. The sample size is determined using a random sampling method (n = 500). Analysis of variance tests show significant differences (0.05) in perceptions of adequacy of resources according to income, education, marital status, number of children, and family life stage. On the other hand, gender, age, family type, and length of marriage are not found to be significant. In addition, regression analysis shows that the demographic variables of income, education, and marital status significantly predicted perceptions of adequacy of resources. (Contains 5 tables.)
