Why is it important to consider the fertility/infant mortality rate when examining the quality of life of women?
Quality of Life Indicators

Infant Mortality

22.48 deaths/1,000 live births
20.32 deaths/1,000 live births (2014 est.)
Fertility Rate
2.08 children born/woman (2014 est.)
Life Expectancy
79.4 (2013)
Birth Rate
16.9 births/1,000; population (2013)
Death Rate
5.0 deaths/1,000; population (2012)
Poverty Rate
16.3% (2014)
Literacy Rate
98.78% (2012 est.)
National Debt
41.59% -(Over $340,080,049,368 debt)
Access to Medical Care
80-90% (2014 est.)
Access to Clean Water
99% (2010 est.)
Access to Education
100% (2013 est.)

Why is the National Literacy Rate seen as an indicator of quality of life?
Educated people= Good Job Opportunities= High Quality of Life & Good Economy
Important to have a good social & economic status.
knowledge needed to participate in the development of the society.
Well-educated population increases their chances of higher-end job incomes.
What role does access to natural resources play in quality of life?
Turkey's Industrial sectors
Primary Industries (raw materials):
Population Density
97 people/km²
Population Distribution
Population of Turkey: 76,498,988 (est.2015)
Human Settlement Patterns
Most concentrated area of settlement is the largest city in Turkey- Istanbul. (14,380,018 population)
Southern & North-Western regions are most populated-Yalova, Bursa, Kilis, Izmir and Ankara-the capital.
Arable land & urban settled provinces are most dense.
Sparsest human settlements occur in the Eastern and Northern regions of Turkey like the Kirklareli Province.
The sparsest populated areas in Turkey are the most under developed parts of Turkey.
Mountainous Regions are also sparsely populated-rugged & un-farmable land, hostile environment, isolated, government's conflicting past etc...
*It indicates patterns/outcomes of modern lifestyles, level of education (for women), income/economy & health care's impacts.
High fertility/infant mortality rate
= bad health care systems, in-sufficient needs, minimally educated (don't know about other options), poor economy, developing country conditions, poverty etc...
Low fertility/infant mortality rate
= educated, good health care, needs met (food, shelter, diapers, medicine), involvement in the job market, higher quality of life etc...
Good use of a country's natural resources= many job opportunities (miners, drillers, planners, investors, workers, etc...)
These jobs, businesses and exports of these natural resources will lead to higher incomes.
Good jobs + decent income= high quality of life.
Results with a wealthy and high standard of living country. (Ex: Dubai->natural resource-oil)
What economic system does Turkey use?
What is the Human Development Index (HDI)?
It is a tool that was introduced by the UN to summarize the human development of each country and imply whether it is developed, underdeveloped, or still developing based on factors/sectors like:
life expectancy
literacy rate
, and
standard of living
(GDP Per Capita).
Turkey's HDI: 0.759|69º
What sector would cause the HDI to be...
How does the country's economy affect the quality of life?
How stable is Turkey's economy?
Woah! These are interesting bits & bobs!
The hazelnuts grown in Turkey are the ones used for Nutella around the globe!
"Çekoslovakyalılastıramadıklarımızdan mıssınız" is the longest word in Turkish.
The Turks answer their phones with ‘My Master?’ instead of Hello.
Turkey is home to 2 of the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World! (Temple of Artemis & Mausoleum of Halicarnassus)
Istanbul is the only city in the world built on two continents.
The oldest known human settlement is in Catalhoyuk, Turkey! (7th Millennium B.C)
Santa Claus, A.k.a St.Nicholas was born on Turkey's Mediterranean Coast.
Turkey borders 8 countries!
Turkey Confirms
Mining (major producer of: marble, boron, copper, emery, iron, gold etc...)
Agriculture (cotton, cheeses, olives, hazelnuts, figs, watermelons, pomegranates etc...)
Fishing (Anchovy, bonito, mussels, etc...) -Mediterranean & Black sea
Secondary Industries (manufacturing):
Textiles & Clothing
oil refining
steel production
machinery production
chemical production
paper production
Tertiary Industries(service provider):
health care
Quaternary Industries (knowledge-based services):
financial planning
IT (Information Technology)
communication technologists
The government of Turkey controls the country’s economy. However, Turkey's economy is not a
pure command economy. Turkey uses a mixed economy. Therefore, the government, individuals, and businesses are all included in economic planning. Also, Turkey's overall economic freedom score- 63.2 is higher than the world average making its economy the 70th freest in the world.
The Turkish economy has shown remarkable performance with its overall steady and improving growth over the last decade.
The visible improvements & stability in the Turkish economy have also boosted foreign trade.
Turkey has an emerging economy and is striving to be part of the European Union (EU).
However, some argue that Turkey has had a few instabilities, including too much dependence on foreign funds and excessive intrusion of politics into its economic life.
Thousands of Turkish officials argue that concerns about their country's prospects are exaggerated.
In which sector does most Turkey work in?
Over 90% of workers work in the private sector.
Turkey's private sectors are the main reason of its today's rapid economic growth.
Including the most important industry and largest export of Turkey- textiles & clothing is almost entirely run by private sectors!
Other private sectors include: tourism, private health care, retail businesses etc...
The physical environment influencing the general location of settlement in Turkey...
The economy of a country indicates it's quality of life.
Strong economy=high quality of life| Weak economy=low quality of life
Good economy
=higher income, consumerism, education, reduced poverty, food,health care...
Bad economy
=lower life expectancy rates, lack of basic amenities, low literacy rates, little/no income, high mortality rates...
Primary sector jobs (agriculture, mining, fishing) and Secondary sector jobs (manufacturing) are typically found in LDC's (Less Developed Countries)
Tertiary sector jobs (retailing, banking, law, education, government) are typically found in MDC's (More Developed Countries), as well as Quaternary sector jobs (trade, insurance, advertising)
These sectors evolve in well developed countries and require highly educated workforces.
MDC's & LDC's are terms the UN made to identify countries in the Human Development Index.

Turkey is surrounded on three sides by the Black Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, and the Aegean Sea.
Istanbul-the most populated region in Turkey is built in the Bosporus seaway.
This geographical location of Turkey gives Istanbul the characteristics of the East and West at the same time.
Istanbul had become an important commerce center because of its establishment in this strategic location (connecting Asia & Europe) where land meets Black & Marmara Sea.
The North-Western Regions have valleys, forests and plains resulting with rich soil and adequate climate.
Proximity to water (Black Sea, Mediterranean Sea, valleys etc...) is an necessity for human settlement in Turkey.
