Individuals surveyed were selected by random sampling method and results were analyzed by using several statistical techniques. Although the findings are varied and detailed, some of them are remarkable. According to the findings striking, inadequacy perception of the newcomers to the city is much more and as long as the residence time increases, the inadequacy perception further increases. Moreover, in those with higher education and income levels, inadequacy perception is more. Being a civil servant also leads to be more inadequacy perception.
