When you read the title, a scene from a zombie movie may come to your mind! So, if our citizens who died in the last 100 years, that is, from the foundation of our country until today, suddenly returned, how much would the population in Turkey, where 85 million 279 thousand 553 people live, increase?

**In a TV series called Les revenants,** Many people who died were suddenly returning. Let’s assume this happens and** Let’s calculate how much it will affect the population of Türkiye**.

Do you think the gap between the male and female population would widen in such a scenario? **How crowded would our country become?**

## For the data we will use in the content** By contacting the Turkish Statistical Institute **We requested relevant data from their archives.

**They gave us the following results regarding death statistics from 50 years ago, that is, since 1972:**

- Total deaths since 1972: 11,619,115
- Female deaths since 1972: 5,155,064
- Male deaths since 1972: 6,464,051

## There are now only 128,671 more men than women!

When we look at TÜİK data in 2023, we see that the numbers of men and women are almost equal, but when the 5 million 155 thousand 64 female population and the 6 million 464 thousand 51 male population who died in the last 50 years are included in the total population, there is a difference. **There is a serious difference compared to today.**

we are talking about **if the scenario could come true** The male population would be 1 million 437 thousand 658 more than the female population.

## So how do things change if we go back to 1972?

Republic of Türkiye** first census **It took place on September 28, 1927. In the first systematic census, the female population was approximately 7 million, while the male population was around 6.6 million.

In 1927, the total population of Turkey was recorded as 13 million 648 thousand 270 people. The second census was in 1935 and subsequent censuses followed suit. **every five years **had followed.

## We prepared a table by recording the death statistics after 1960 from the TÜİK library archive:

YEAR/NUMBER OF DEATHS |
WOMAN |
MALE |
TOTAL |

1960 | 45181 | 51222 | 96403 |

1961 | 44509 | 51236 | 95745 |

1962 | 43262 | 50370 | 93632 |

1963 | 44534 | 52304 | 96838 |

1964 | 44713 | 53058 | 97771 |

1965 | 43779 | 51648 | 95427 |

1966 | 44018 | 52957 | 96975 |

1967 | 46135 | 55496 | 101631 |

1968 | 46552 | 57220 | 103872 |

1969 | 45808 | 55900 | 102708 |

1970 | 46502 | 58054 | 104556 |

1971 | 48059 | 59169 | 107228 |

1972 | 50557 | 61862 | 112419 |

We have already mentioned the period after 1972 above. It is seen that the number of deaths between 1960 and 1972 was 1 million 305 thousand 205. **If we go a little deeper into history;** The situation is a little more complicated between 1927, when the first census took place, and 1960.

Population censuses that take place every five years **1935, 1940, 1945, 1950 and 1955** It was made in years. However, unfortunately, net death statistics for those years are not available.

## Let’s calculate the total population, including the deceased population, since the foundation of the Republic of Turkey, using the data we have and the inferences we will make.

Death data above **From the crude death-birth rates chart** When we make inferences by comparing them to the total population, these numbers are;

**Between 1935-1940**409 thousand 450,**Between 1940-1945**533 thousand 215,**Between 1945-1950**523 thousand 680,**Between 1950-1959**It is approximately calculated as 430 thousand 940.

Since the first census took place in 1927, unfortunately, data on how many people died in those years are not available. However **If we make a rough calculation **We see that almost 1 million people lost their lives between 1935 and 1945.

Therefore, between 1923, when the Republic was declared, and 1935, **Approximately 1 million people died** Let’s examine together what the mathematical calculation would be like.

**11,619,115**(Number of deaths between 1972-2023),**1,305,205**(Number of deaths between 1960-1972),**430,940**(Number of deaths between 1950-1959),**523,680**(Number of deaths between 1945-1950),**533,215**(Number of deaths between 1940-1945),**409,450**(Number of deaths between 1935-1940),**1,000,000**When the data (number of deaths between 1923-1935) is collected, the data from the foundation of the Republic of Turkey to the present**approximately 15,821,605 people**We can conclude that he lost his life.

## If you want to find out the result after all these mathematical operations, we swam and swam to the end!

According to the data announced by the Turkish Statistical Institute, when we add the number 15 million 821 thousand 605 to the number 85 million 279 thousand 553 representing the population of Turkey in 2023, **101 million 101 thousand 158** We get the result.

## In other words, if all the people who died from 1923 to the present day were resurrected, the population of Türkiye today would be approximately **to 101.1 million people** would reach.
