On 20 July 2017, the Social Security Institution (SSI) announced its new and improved monthly statistics. The new dataset is used in the 62nd edition of TEPAV Employment Monitoring Bulletin that evaluates the data for April 2017. Different than the old series, the newly announced dataset does not include interns and trainees in the in the scope of 4/a, and optionally insured and the laborers insured for other reasons are not included in the scope of 4/c.

The comparison of the new and the old series for 4/a employees announced by SSI is shown in Figure 1. The difference between the old series taken from the TEPAV İİB dataset and the new series taken from SSI is due to the increasing number of interns, especially in the summer months, which is not included in the new series.

The reason for the decrease of 817 thousand in the number of employees in formal employment in January 2017 is the inclusion of vocational and technical high school interns as insured laborers in the old series even though they’re excluded in the new series after the December 9 2016 change of regulation.
