No 9706, Working Papers from Economic Research Forum
This paper presents regional and provincial data on the educational composition of Turkey's labor force over time as well as estimates of the human capital stock measured as the average years of formal education received by the work force. The data set is comprised of the estimated human capital stock for the set of 67 provinces over the census years from 1970 to 1990. Although regional disparities have persisted, the data shows significant improvements in the educational attainment of the labor force during the past two decades.
