Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the construction sector's impact on the Turkish economy and its import dependency. This paper is an extension of an earlier analysis by using the latest two input-output (IO) tables issued by Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat). Due to the incompatibility of the previous tables, the scope of this study is limited to the years 1998 and 2002. The indicators obtained from the analysis are the Gross National Product (GNP) shares of construction, manufacturing and services; the share of construction in National Income (NI); direct and total construction backward and forward linkages and direct and total construction inputs. On the other hand; in order to examine the import dependency, construction share of imported input in GNP production; construction share of importation in total input usage; construction backward and forward linkage indicators in importation and direct imported construction inputs are analysed using IO tables for imports. The results of the analysis are represented by tables and key findings are concluded.
