Abstract

This thesis presents a snapshot of 1844 Bursa‘s city center in terms of occupational structure, income inequality and social status. All the data was taken from Bursa‘s temettuat register. Temettuat registers consist of several different information including occupations, annual income, honorific titles, properties, rents, annual taxes, ethno-religious identities and employment statuses of each household head. My analysis corroborates the hypothesis that there is a strong relation among occupational structure, income level and honorific titles. In this regard, this thesis first describes the relationship between occupational structure and income level. The second analysis concerns with income inequality within and among certain groups including occupational, income and ethno-religious groups. The third point will consider the relationship between having honorific titles, occupational structure and income level. It must also be noticed that because silk industry had an important place for the economy of Bursa, my analysis about occupational structure, income inequality and social status will include silk sector as well.
