Turkey is about 74 million inhabitants and a land area of 783,562 km2. About half of the country’s residents are under 25 years old, which stands for nearly 37 million people. Turkey is among the fastest-growing markets in the world, being the 17th largest economy at present.
Turkey’s market research industry had a turnaround of about $150 million in 2010 compared to $43 million in 2002. So, it grows gradually.
Internet penetration in Turkey is about 45%. Because the country’s population is rather young, social media have a serious place among internet users, with about 22.5 million Facebook and 4 million Twitter users.
There are now more than 66 million mobile phones in use in Turkey; that is 92% of the entire population.
Life expectancy in Turkey is about 74 years for women and 70 years for men. Health expenditure was 6.7% of GDP in 2009. About 14% of the population has social insurance, compared to 9% in 2002.
