1960s, and 1970s, more than 3 million people have been immigrating to Germany
and to other countries. Therefore, while making calculations one should add this
number on top of the population of Turkey which is 62.7 million.
Today, 70% of this population lives in cities and 30% in rural areas. Especially
after the 1950s, the modernization of agriculture and industrial development resulted
in mass internal migration from rural areas to cities. This internal migration
still continues at a tremendous speed, causing a series of problems such the issue
of slums and shanty towns. High population growth rates have resulted in a very
young population. After the 1960s there has been a decrease in this growth rate
as a result of extensive efforts in family planning.
Turkey, most of the population is concentrated in the Marmara, Aegean and the
Mediterranean regions which are economically more developed compared to the Eastern
and Southeastern Anatolia regions.
