The study aims to test whether poverty and life satisfaction have an effect on social exclusion by means of structural equation modeling.436 volunteers participated in the study. The fit indices for the model were obtained as X2/df=5.914, GFI=0.98, CFI=0.95 and RMSEA= 0.04. These results show that the model has an acceptable fit. All the estimated measure coefficients were found statistically meaningful. It was concluded that poverty has a positive and strong effect on social exclusion, while life satisfaction has a negative and strong effect on social exclusion.
