This paper looks at the survival among the top firms in Turkey and analyses which company specific attributes are correlated with survival. Looking at the company specific attributes such as profitability, number of employees, productivity, exporter status, which industry or network a firm belongs to and where it operates, the paper aimed to get a picture of the top thousand firms in Turkey over a period of 35 years. We found that having a higher number of employees, higher productivity, and higher profitability (with one exception), operating out of a major industrial center, as well as belonging to a secular network were all correlated in a statistically significant way with continued survival among the top firms.
