Asatisfact­ion survey conducted Xsights Research and Consulting for Dunya newspaper shows that 30 percent of Turks are “very satisifed” with the government’s religious services, while healthcare and transporta­titon ranked second and third.

The Social Pulse Questionna­ire, carried out with computer-assisted phone calls in 26 cities, surveyed 1,500 people over the age of 18. Participan­ts, 80 percent of whom live in cities and 20 percent in rural areas, assessed the rate of approval of services the Turkish state offers its citizens.

41 percent of the respondent­s said they were “satisfied” with the services the state provides in religion, bringing the overall satisfacti­on rate to 71 percent. Security and national security also ranked in the top five in the satisfacti­on survey.

The economy, financial system, judiciary, education and internatio­nal relations are the areas where Turks are least satisfied with the government, the survey showed.

The region that is most satisfied with energy-distributi­on services is the eastern Black Sea, with 74 percent. The western Marmara region, with 28 percent, and the Aegean coast, with 26 percent, are the least satisfied with energy distributi­on.

People living in the eastern Black Sea are the most satisfied with the tourism services at 78 percent. The same region leads satisfacti­on with labor and job-safety services, with a ratio of 76 percent. This region is followed by the eastern Marmara with 70 percent.
