Adult Education in Turkey: Stylized Facts, Determinants and Further Issues
We provide a novel set of stylized facts on individuals engaging in adult education using the Adult Education Survey (AES) conducted by TurkStat for the first time. This way we provide the first evidence on the determinants of participation in adult education in a developing country, Turkey. Our results indicate that old, uneducated, workingwomen with uneducated fathers and with young children in the household are less likely to take part in adult education activities in Turkey. However, young, educated, workingmen living in rural areas are more likely to participate in adult education. We also find that past performance of the sector of employment, significantly and positively affects the odds for adult education. Finally, we repeated our analysis for different fields of adult education. Our results suggest that characteristics of men and women who take courses in the most popular fields of education vary.
