Abstract EN

This study aims to examine the impact of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on employment generation in the Turkish manufacturing industry.

This study is said to be the first attempt in exploring the impact of ICT on employment generation in Turkish manufacturing industry at the firm level.

The analysis is based on firm level data obtained from Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) and covers the period from 2003 to 2013.

The data used in the analysis includes all firms employing 20 or more employees in Turkish manufacturing industry.

Our findings based on system GMM estimations show that ICT has employment-enhancing effects in Turkish manufacturing.

Moreover, our results provide the evidence that tangible ICT capital has stronger employment generation impact than that of intangible ICT capital in medium-tech and low-tech industries.
