In this study, an attempt is made to compare and contrast the determinants of earnings differentials in Ankara and İstanbul. The determinants of earnings differentials are first examined with semi-logarithmic single equation models based on the basic human capital approach. Secondly, extended models are formed in which all the variables are expressed as dummy variables. In general, the average per hour earnings in İstanbul is higher than in Ankara. It is found that age, gender, education, job status and marital status have significant effects on the explanatory power of the model, whereas the impact of occupation is only modest.
