Abstract

In this study, livestock numbers and animal production of the main regions of Eastern and Southeastern of Turkey were evaluated by multivariate statistical analysis methods in order to determine the recent structure of livestock production. Data were taken from Turkish Statistical Institute (Turk Stat). The cities showing structural resemblance with each other were established as results of cluster analysis were summarized in dendograms. Also, accuracy of the clustering analysis was tested by Wilk's Lamda statistics value and assigning of cluster of cities was determined with discriminant analysis.
