Abstract: This study demonstrates the distribution of educational attainment in Turkey based on district level data for 1990 and 2010. Focusing on the economically active working age population (25-64 age band) our results indicate that; even average years of schooling becomes spatially more alike, higher education levels witness an on-going divergence. Additionally our results indicate that different segments of the society realize different levels of improvement in education attainment. Female population and rural population are observed to be the most disadvantageous individuals. These results become even more remarkable once the spatial spill overs and the persistence of spatial heterogeneity is considered.
