The impact of military spending and income inequality on economic growth in Turkey
Tongur, Unal; Elveren, Adem Yavuz (Informa UK Limited, 2016-05-03)
An extensive literature on the effect of military expenditures on economic growth yields conflicting results. However, a crucial issue that has not been investigated in this context is the possible effect of inequality. The impact of military expenditures on economic growth in Turkey has also received substantial attention. Yet, the majority of these studies are not constructed based on a structural model, but rather examine the causality between the variables in question. Considering these two shortcomings...
The impact of household income on child labour in urban Turkey
Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem (Informa UK Limited, 2006-08-01)
The aim of this study is to investigate the determinants of child labour in urban Turkey with a special reference to low household income or poverty as one of its root causes. Studies done elsewhere have produced mixed results which necessitate the relationship to be studied at country-level. The data from urban Turkey indicate that children from poorer families stand at a higher risk of employment. This finding is confirmed using various measures of household material well-being. Simulation results have fu...

The Impact of the Extension of Compulsory Schooling on Child Labor in Turkey
Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem (2018-11-30)
Child labor remains a concern in many parts of the developing world. The latest estimates of the ILO suggest that there are 168 million child laborers worldwide, making up 11 percent of the child population (ILO, 2013). There is an extensive literature on child labor that assesses its magnitude, correlates and the impact of various interventions in tackling it (for a review see, Edmonds (2008)). We contribute to this literature by studying how the extensions of compulsory schooling in Turkey in 1997 from 5 ...
The Effects of Compulsory-Schooling Laws on Teenage Marriage and Births in Turkey
KIRDAR, MURAT GÜRAY; Dayıoğlu Tayfur, Meltem; KOÇ, İSMET (2018-12-01)
We estimate the effects of the extension of compulsory schooling from 5 to 8 years in Turkey on marriage and birth outcomes of teenage girls, using a regression discontinuity design. This law increases girls' schooling by roughly 1 year on average, substantially reducing the probability of marriage by age 16 and first birth by age 17. These effects disappear after ages 17 for marriage and 18 for first birth. These results suggest that this law has strong compulsory-attendance effects during the newly mandat...
