Abstract
This paper analyzes to what extent jobs in different sectors of Turkey are vulnerable to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) crisis considering both effects specific to COVID-19, and sector- and employment-specific vulnerabilities. With this objective, first, the authors identify sectors that are most amenable to working from home. The authors then use this index and other dimensions of vulnerability to develop an employment vulnerability index for Turkey. The authors find that only 10 percent of workers in Turkey can work from home. Employment vulnerability is highest among textile and apparel, accommodation and food, and leather sectors; while jobs in information and communications technology (ICT) and finance are the least vulnerable. The authors find that overall, around 7 million workers are at the risk of losing their jobs due to the economic impacts of COVID-19.
