Youth Unemployment Duration in Turkey
Taşçı, H. Mehmet; Tansel, Aysıt (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2005-12)

We find that young women have lower chance of getting a job from unemployment than young men. Urban residen...

We show that a more reasonable picture of schooling and work choices emerges when a simple correction for ‘missing mal...

This study therefore examined how early and how much young children (from 0 to 6 years of age) use television, computers, and tablet/smartphones, specifically whether...
