the reading culture.
It is targeted to profile the readers and determine the reading tendencies in Turkey; find solutions to eliminate the direct
and indirect problems in accessing the information; provide the related persons and organizations with suggestions;
determine the library perception in the society; raise and diversify the service quality provided by the public and
children's libraries of our Ministry; and draw the roadmap for the future.

Sampling
Within the scope of "Turkey Reading Culture Map Project", 6212 persons have been interviewed in 26 cities capable of
representing Turkey.
The research has been conducted with 6212 persons from Adana, Ağrı, Ankara, Antalya, Aydın, Balıkesir, Bursa, Erzurum,
Gaziantep, Hatay, Istanbul, Izmir, Kastamonu, Kayseri, Kırıkkale, Kocaeli, Konya, Malatya, Manisa, Mardin, Samsun,
Şanlıurfa, Tekirdağ, Trabzon, Van, and Zonguldak selected from NUTS2 level of Turkish Statistical Institution.
For the sampling based on the Address-Based Registration System (ADNKS) of Turkish Statistical Institution, cities have
been selected from each geographical region. While selecting the cities, instead of the similar cities, those with different
socioeconomic and sociocultural development levels have been preferred. The selected sampling represents the
sampling universe, i.e. Turkey, in terms of the rural and urban distribution.
This study conducted in cities selected from NUTS2 level determined by Turkish Statistical Institute remains within 0.95
confidence limits, and its error margin is ±1.23%.
