Abstract

This paper examines the Turkish wage curve using individual data from the Household Labor Force Survey including 26 NUTS-2 regions over the period 2005-2008. We find an unemployment elasticity of -0.099, with a higher elasticity for younger, less educated, less experienced and female workers.
