Turkey has a strong and rapidly growing private sector, though the state still plays a major role in basic industry, banking and utilities. The country's largest export is textiles and clothing. Of Turkey's 67.6 million inhabitants, nearly 32% are under 15, though half of 15- to 19-year-olds are neither enrolled in school nor in possession of an upper secondary qualification. Turkey's consumer price inflation is the fourth-highest in the world - in 2002 it reached a whopping 45%. Unemployment is estimated at 10.8%.
