Resiliency levels of disabled people were examined in terms of age, gender, marital status and educational level.SPSS 19 statistical software package was used for the evaluation of the obtained data. Test of normality of data was performed with One–Sample Kolmogorov–Simirnov test and it was seen that data has not shown a normal distribution. For this reason, non-parametric tests, Mann-Whitney U Test and Kruskal-Wallis test batteries were used in testing of these data.
