Demographic roots of socioeconomic development : a case study for Turkey
Özer, Merve Nezihe; Özen, İlhan Can; Department of Economics (2013)
Demographic transition is under way in all over the world as well as in Turkey. From 1940s onwards, life expectancy has increased by more than 30 years and total fertility rate has declined from 6-7 children per woman to almost 2 children in Turkey. Those changes in mortality and fertility patterns affected the age distribution of the population such that share of individuals in working age group has increased to almost 70% while share of children aged 15 and below in total population is lower than 30% and ...
Spatial variation of elderly population and its dynamics in Turkey
Şenbil, Metin; Yetişkul Şenbil, Emine (2021-10-01)
As the world population is getting older, care for elderly and procurement to their special needs gains importance for both national and local governments. Therefore, distribution of elderly population and their (residential) mobility behaviours gains importance to improve policies coupled in this respect. However, although demographic processes can easily be monitored and projected over time for a country, estimating distribution of certain population cohorts over space (elderly population in our case) ent...

Population Genomics Reveal Recent Speciation and Rapid Evolutionary Adaptation in Polar Bears
Liu, Shiping; et. al. (Elsevier BV, 2014-05-08)
Polar bears are uniquely adapted to life in the High Arctic and have undergone drastic physiological changes in response to Arctic climates and a hyper-lipid diet of primarily marine mammal prey. We analyzed 89 complete genomes of polar bear and brown bear using population genomic modeling and show that the species diverged only 479-343 thousand years BP. We find that genes on the polar bear lineage have been under stronger positive selection than in brown bears; nine of the top 16 genes under strong positi...
Statistical downscaling of monthly reservoir inflows for Kemer watershed in Turkey: use of machine learning methods, multiple GCMs and emission scenarios
OKKAN, UMUT; İnan, Gül (Wiley, 2015-09-01)
In this study, statistical downscaling of general circulation model (GCM) simulations to monthly inflows of Kemer Dam in Turkey under A1B, A2, and B1 emission scenarios has been performed using machine learning methods, multi-model ensemble and bias correction approaches. Principal component analysis (PCA) has been used to reduce the dimension of potential predictors of National Centers for Environmental Prediction and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis data. Then, the reasonabl...
