There are widely different characteristics in the literature, as well as common features related to the concept of quality of life. In urban life, the quality of life is determined by the interaction of social, economic and physical environment and is directly related to the practices of central and local decision makers. Today, through the state and municipalities, social housing is being produced to solve low-income families' housing problems and to improve the quality of life in general. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of the housing production based on the slum dwelling on the quality of life of households. A total of 506 surveys were conducted in 3 districts to assess the quality of life of residents in ？stanbul. Accordingly, living situation (individual well-being, quality of life), physical (housing, shelter), environment (habitat, urban infrastructure), social (neighbourhood relations, family relations), economic (business, employment, income, indebtedness), access to services (transportation, municipal services) and 7 indicators, including general factors of life quality were identified. As a result of this study, the improvement of the quality of life of displaced slum dwellers and the improvement of the communication and communication ways of slum dwellers and decision makers are proposed.
