[TR] Bu notta Turkiye’de bazi temel emek piyasasi degiskenlerinin konjonkturel yapisi cinsiyet bazinda istatistiksel olarak incelenmektir. Toplulastirilmis gostergeler, iktisadi anlamda onem arz eden ve cinsiyet bazinda alt gruplarda gozlenmesi muhtemel heterojen yapiyi gizleyebilmektedir. Bu calismada yapilan analizlerde, konjonkturel dalgalanmalar esnasinda istihdamin kadin ve erkeklerde tamamen zit yonde hareket ettigi ve isgucune katilimin cinsiyet bazinda onemli nitelik ve niceliksel farkliliklar gosterdigi gozlenmistir. Ekonomik daralma donemlerinde erkek istihdami azalirken kadinlarin hem isgucune katiliminin hem de istihdaminin artmasinin, daralma donemlerinde isgucu piyasalarindaki kotulesmeyi ve bu donemlerin ekonomik ve sosyal maliyetlerini sinirlayan muhtemel etkenler arasinda oldugu dusunulmektedir. Issizlikte ise cinsiyet bazinda niceliksel farklar gozlenmekle beraber, niteliksel olarak iki grup birbirine benzemektedir. [EN] This note analyzes the cyclical characteristics of the key labor market indicators in Turkey with respect to gender decomposition, as the aggregate indicators may conceal the heterogeneity across genders that may be important in terms of economic dynamics. Our analysis reveals opposite movements in female and male employment and qualitative and quantitative differences in labor force participation across gender groups. The increase in female employment and labor force participation observed simultaneously with the decline in male employment during downturns appears to be among the possible factors mitigating the economic and social costs of economic downturns in Turkey. Cyclical behavior of unemployment is qualitatively the same for both males and females, although there are quantitative differences across these groups.
