Abstract (2. Language): 
This paper analyzes the time series behavior of the annual growth rate of Turkey's GDP and growth rate of its industrial sector GDP's. Drawing on the work of Hamilton (1989), we examine the two series for evidence ofperiodic, discrete shifts in the mean using a two-state Markov regime switching model. The results provide strong evidence that shifts in the mean of the growth process both general and sectoral is a prominent feature of the data. According to probability results, there is one switch between the regimes in general growth process and there are five switches in industrial sector growth process.
