Abstract

Using data from two rounds of an official household labor force survey, this paper analyzes the impact of export-oriented growth strategy on female labor force participation and employment in urban Turkey, controlling for both supply-side and demand-side factors. While the long-term economic growth at the province level is found to have a significant positive effect on both the employment and participation of women, the impact of export-orientation is not as strong and is more pronounced in the case of nonmarried women.
