It is possible to produce cross tables, make various statistical analyses and run econometric models by means of using micro data given in this CD.

Since 2011, "Completed Age" variable has been added to data set in addition to the variable "Completed Age Group ".As the weighting process is based on the age groups in data set, it is not reliable to produce estimations by absolute age variable. This absolute age variable was added to the data set to be used just in the possible modeling studies.

In year 2012, classification of occupations in labour force survey were double coded by both "International Standard Classification of Occupations" ISCO 88 and ISCO 08. From 2013 onwards, ISCO 08 has started to be used. In 2012 micro data set, occupation codes are given by both classifications. Distributions of occupational groups can be seen by transition matrix.

Weighting coefficient used to calculate annual results, is a separate variable in micro data set. Each individual (each record) has its own weight. Especially, if someone needs to create cross tables related to the labour force variables (employment, unemployment) weights should be used in order to reach total figures. Tables given in the “summary tables” section can be used to check whether the weighting process is made successfully.

Annual results of the household labour force survey could be given by Statistical Regions (SR) Level 1 in urban and rural detail and for total by SR Level 2 besides the estimations given for Turkey and in urban rural distinction. Since SR level 1 and Level 2 codes are given in the CD, studies could also be done in by regional breakdown. However, it should be noted that; according to the estimation level of household labour force survey, it is not reliable to produce estimations by urban/rural breakdown in SR Level 2.

Turkey Statistical Institute is not responsible for the results which will be produced regardless of these warnings.
