A cross-sectional analysis of income, consumption and saving behavior of Turkish household This paper investigates the age profiles of income, consumption and saving of Turkish households, compares them to the profiles reported for various developing and developed countries, and evaluates the results within a life-cycle theory framework. These life-cycle profiles are constructed for separate income quartiles and education groups as well as for the whole population. It is crucial to understand the consumption and saving behavior of different income groups in Turkey due to the high level of income inequality. As current income could be affected by temporary income shocks, we use educational attainment level as an instrument for permanent income in analyzing the relationship between income and consumption/saving. Furthermore, the age profiles presented in this study provide us information as to how savings may evolve in the future as a result of changing demographic conditions. In the second part of the study, cross-section profiles of income, consumption, and saving from 2002 to 2006 are compared to see how these profiles have evolved over time.

Income and, consumption and saving behavior of Turkish households
Cilasun, Seyit Mümin; Kırdar, Murat G.; Department of Economics (2009)
Using 2002-2006 Household Budget Survey, this thesis investigates the income, consumption and saving dynamics of Turkish households within a life-cycle theory framework by employing cross-sectional analyses and cohort techniques. Cohort techniques are used not only to analyze these variables, but also to investigate the demographics and components of income and consumption. The analyses are deepened by dividing the sample according to the location of the households (urban-rural areas), and significant diffe...
Internal migration, redistributive policies and income distribution in Turkey: an intertemporal CGE analysis
Yakut, Aykut Mert; Taymaz, Erol; Department of Economics (2016)
This thesis focuses on the effects of the public policies on the size distribution of income in Turkey. To this end, an intertemporal computable general equilibrium model with heterogeneous agents in a small open economy framework is constructed. This study serves several extensions to the literature with its algebraic structure and calibration process in which various micro-level data sets have been utilized extensively. The results reveal that, in line with the previous findings of the literature, increas...
Consuption, income and liquidity constraints : the case of Turkish economy
Ceritoğlu, Evren; Güzel, Alper; Department of Economics (2003)
The aim of this thesis study is to enlighten the economic relationship among consumption, income and liquidity constraints in Turkish Economy. For this aim, generalized instrumental variables estimation technique (GIVE) is used to estimate reduced-form consumption equations derived by Hall (1978) and improved by Campbell and Mankiw (1989). Estimations are realized for two separate periods of Turkish Economy. For the sub-period of 1987 to 1995, it is observed that a significant part of households consume the...
Household Structure and Household Income and its Components over the Life-Cycle in Turkey
Kırdar, Murat Güray; Cilasun, Seyit Mümin (Iktisat Isletme ve Finans Dergisi, 2013-7-1)
In this study, using the 2003 Turkish Household Budget Survey, we investigate the life-cycle profiles of household income and its components by educational attainment, compare these profiles with those reported for various developed and developing countries, and interpret our findings within the life-cycle framework. A key aspect of our analysis is that we examine the link between household structure and household income over the life-cycle. The main finding of the study is that household income profiles co...
Intergenerational transmission of poverty in Turkey
Öylü, Gülin; Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem; Department of Economics (2016)
This study examines the presence and dynamics of intergenerational transmission of poverty in Turkey and attempts to reveal the possible channels through which childhood poverty affects household income later in life using the “intergenerational transmission of disadvantages” module of the Survey on Income and Living Conditions (SILC) (2011). The results show that childhood poverty decreases total household income by 5%. However, the effect of childhood poverty differs for the different components of househ...
