Particulars:
Source "TI" = "Türkiye istatistik yilligi" = "Statistical yearbook of Turkey" (ISSN 0082-691X)
Diacritic marks on letters like a "hacek" on the "g", or the dotless "i", or the cedilla under the letter "s" are alas not shown correctly in this file.
For reasons of comparability the columns of the years 1925-1935 have been repeated in the bottom part of the former administrative division (ca. 1924); specific information how and when this was changed lacks at the moment.
