The Comparison Of Labor Force Participation Rate Of Women In Turkey With The World Country Groups
AbstractAs a part of the community, women play active roles in different assignments and types of economic activities. This is important for women themselves and for the country; therefore, many legal regulations have been established. According to the ILO Global Employment Trends 2008, in 2007 1.2 billion women were in economic activities. Unfortunately this condition is not valid for Turkey. The ratio of women in the labor force has gradually decreased in Turkey. While the Labor Force Participation Rate (LFPR) was 72% in 1955, in 2008 it is only 21.2%. The average LFPR is approximately 61% for the EU and OECD countries. According to this data, Turkey takes place at the last line among the OECD, G8 and EU countries. In Turkey, the unemployment problem has become a serious matter and the performance of the economy to produce new investments has decreased and informal economy has grown. This nugatory situation has affected the female labor force negatively.
