The added worker effect (AWE) is the measure of individuals’ entry to the labor force when their partners have become unemployed. Unlike the existing literature on Turkish economy, this study does not restrict the impact of the AWE on females. We employ a new method built by Guner, Kulikova, and Valladares-Esteban (2020) to the case of Turkish labor market. We find that the added worker effect has the biggest impact on the labor force participation of married women. The results indicate that the added worker effect reduces the share of couples with neither of their members employed. We find that the added worker effect increases with time and during recessions
