Characteristics of the long-term unemployment: evidence from turkish labor force survey

This paper uses Turkish Household Labor Force Survey data, employing logistic regression modeling, to examine differential impacts of demographic profiles and unemployment-related nominators on long-term unemployment by genders. The results suggest that long-term unemployment is affected by a range of demographic profiles and unemployment-related nominators considered. Additionally, those who are old aged, single and located in Black Sea Region, new graduates for men, housewives for female, highly educated and look for a full-time job at high-ranked positions display higher likelihood of being out of work for a year and more. However, Istanbul and Marmara Regions offer more employment possibilities for women depending on regional development.
