Abstract

Using panel data across 26 regions, this paper investigates why the long-run trend of decreasing share of agricultural employment following the usual path of economic development in Turkey, has been reversed in the aftermath of the global crisis. Our results show that the decrease in non-agricultural wages during the crisis was not effective in increasing agricultural employment; however, changes in relative agricultural prices had a significant effect. Exploring further for other causes, such as changes in agricultural production structure, does not change the results.
