Within Input-output Analysis, intersectoral linkages are particularly based on mutual input using of sectors. However these inputs are produced in the native country, they are obtained throughout import. Many studies have been carried out on general input values without considering this decomposition. But, while examining the linkage structure, more detailed information is found out,if inputs are considered in calculations by decomposing with respect to gross domestic and imported. In this study, based on the input-output tables of 2002, the effect of intermediate goods on the structure of intersectoral linkages and then the sectoral structure of the economy of Turkey will be assessed with reference to general, domestic production and imported intermediate goods. To serve this purpose, within the frame of input-output analysis, using the direct and aggregate intermediate goods first (direct and indirect intermediate goods), direct and aggregate link effect and indexes will be calculated and the sector linkages will be examined over forward link effect.
