Abstract

The skill biased technological change (SBTC) hypothesis relates earnings inequality to the change in technology with the hypothesis that technology increases the relative demand for skilled labor. In this paper we will investigate the evidence of SBTC hypothesis for two digit level 9 sectors in Turkey between 1982-1998. This paper is, in fact, a replication of Betts (1997) with Turkish data. The main finding of our study is the fact that there is no statistically significant support for skill biased technological change hypothesis for Turkish manufacturing sector between 1982 and 1998.
