ECONOMIC RECESSION AND FERTILITY AMONG EDUCATIONAL GROUPS IN TURKEY
 
This study aimed to determine Economic recessions affect economic and social indicators considerably. In this regard, fertility rates are affected by economic recessions and their implications. Generally, fertility rate is affected negatively by the economic recessions. Although crises decrease fertility rates, for crisis and fertility relationship there is variation by region, areas (urban-rural), age, educational level and parity. From this point of view, in this paper we looked at fertility rates among educational levels in crisis years for Turkey. Importing data from Turkey Demographic and Health Surveys (TNSA), we found that women with higher educational level were less affected than women with lower educational levels by the economic recession in Turkey. Women with higher education increased total desired fertility rate (TDFR) and total fertility rate (TFR) while women with lower educational level decreased their TDFR and TFR.
