I have changed the population figures regarding many countries. the reasons are the following: 1. Turkey cannot be included cause the article is supposed to be about the Turkish diaspora, not about the Turkish people. 2. The Turkomans of Iraq, as it is generally accepted and as the article devoted to them says, are an ethnic group, related to the Turkish and Azeri people. thus, they are Turkic speaking, but not Turkish. 3. I have doubts concerning Germany (since the figure includes the Kurds as well, although they are not even Turkic...) 4. Iran: that seemed extremely POVish... a number found nowhere + an unbelievable estimation about the number of the Azeris. does the author know that Iran is not an Azeri majority country? pls, remind him...hmmm...her maybe... 5. Syria: Does this number concerns the Kurds in Syria (who according to turkish government are 'mountainous Turks)? I have seen a source about such a number of turkish people in Syria, but it was based on a 1906 census! 6. G...
Could somebody cite any sources about number of Turks in these countries: 1. Brazil 2. Mexico 3. Russia 4. Azerbaijan 5. Iran 6. Iraq 7. Syria Ajda01:33, 24 December 2006 (UTC) 1. You can try to look for them too, u know :) Baristarim01:28, 26 December 2006 (UTC)
By, "Turkish people", does it mean "citizens of Turkey", or the Turkish ethnicity? Khoikhoi00:42, 7 January 2007 (UTC) 1. BTW, why is it necessary to clarify that we're not talking about Turkic peoples? I don't see the Germans article saying "this differs from the Germanic peoples"... Khoikhoi01:03, 7 January 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. I suppose it is used here by meaning "citizens of Turkey", since the number for Germany includes the Kurds originating in Turkey. IMO, there is no need for clarification. the other Turkic peoples can have their own diaspora articles, since no such article about ethnic group families exists. the english language has the distinction between "Turkic" and "Turkish", and when someone is talking about the "Turks", certainly does not have the Gagauz in mind:). Hectorian01:14, 7 January 2007 (UTC) 1. 1.1. 1.1.1. My point was that this is meant to be an encyclopedia article and this is the place to have the definitions. As such we have to create that clear distinction...
Hi, this regards the recent edit of User:18.104.22.168. The editor wants to make a revision to the number of people of Turkish ethnicity in Germany (from 2,637,000 to 2,180,000), together with a new reference for the new number. I feel the need to say that I'm not doing a blind revert just because the number gets lower. Recently, I spent considerable time providing reliable references for the numbers on the table, always preferring data published by official statistics offices with a clear mention of the number concerning this article. If you check the numbers before my referencing work (), you can clearly see that the numbers went down with my edits, so, this revert is not because I care about the actual value of the number. I realize the reference given by the user (Statistisches Bundesamt, the official bureau of statistics) is more reliable than the existing one (a German university institute), I myself already did a search on Bundesamt's website for the number we are looking for,...
The number for Turkey is not right. It says 73,400,000, but the link gives a total of 72,100,000 under the name 'Population, total'. That means the whole population of Turkey, not just the Turkish. As this is an article about Turkish people living outside of Turkey and Demographics_of_Turkey#Ethnic_groups shows that numbers about the ethnic composition of Turkey are disputed (e.g. possibly 20% of the population might be Kurdish, but these are not mentioned in Turkish censuses). I would therefore rather have the entry for Turkey removed. Any other ideas? --Hardscarf18:52, 4 May 2007 (UTC) 1. Very important point. The number for Turkey here should represent people of Turkish ethnicity, not Turkish citizenship. I'm removing the entry for now, until it will be fixed with a valid reference. Atilim Gunes Baydin 19:07, 4 May 2007 (UTC) 1.1. With my last edit, I tried to clearly present the number of ethnic Turks within Turkey, Turkey's total population, and the number of Turks living outsi...
There is no Turkish diaspora living in Bulgaria. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ilhanli (talk • contribs) 16:14, 9 October 2007 (UTC) You are confusing "diaspora" and "natives". diaspora refers to people (Jews) who are migrated. so, Bulgaria cannot be included. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ilhanli (talk • contribs) 19:25, 28 December 2007 (UTC) EDITORS: The "TURKS IN BULGARIA" figures in this article need to be returned to where they were several months ago. It is irrelevant that many of these Turks were not born in Turkey; they consider themselves Turkish and speak Turkish in their daily lives. Furthermore, most other "Turks_in_[country]" articles refer to ethnic Turks as well as those with Turkish nationality. One cannot therefore ignore almost (if not more than) 800,000 Turks who live in Bulgaria. I feel it may be people harbouring Bulgarian nationalist feelings (or ultra-nationalist Turks) who removed the figures, however removing them does not change the facts tha...
Turks in Kosovo, Turks in Macedonia, Muslim minority of Greece, Turks of Romania, Iraqi Turkmen, Turkish Cypriots etc. should not be listed here. These are native peoples of the corresponding countries not a diaspora.--Nostradamus1 (talk) 03:25, 1 March 2008 (UTC) 1. Yes.--Ilhanli (talk) 11:10, 15 April 2008 (UTC) 1.1. I am a Turkish cypriot and therefore i TOTALLY understand what you mean...although i see myself as Turkish i am a Cypriot... i have changed the setting of the article by adding a turkish native section aswell. It is best to have all the Turkish people on this article but put them into different headings for people to understand the Turkish population better. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:13, 25 June 2008 (UTC)
I know nothing about this topic, but it seems to me that a diaspora is more than just those of an ethnicity living abroad. It usually either those forced out of a land, those fleeing unrest or disaster, or (anachronistically) those who left to manage a conquered land or colony. Those who went abroad to find work or emigrate for other reasons are not usually defined thus, unless there was some reason pushing them. If you look at the rest of List_of_diasporas#T, you see something more than just talking about those living abroad (admittedly, some are just statements of expatriates). If there is some reason to call it a diaspora, it seems like you should explain those reasons, or else move/rename this article to something more appropriate. Again, I have no knowledge or expertise, but was looking up something else and found this page by accident.GumbyProf: "I'm about ideas, but I'm not always about good ideas."

I like the idea of writing about the history of the diaspora and about turkish nationality, however the total figures have not been written down in the tables. Are we waiting for more references or something before adding them? Also a natives section has been added, will this make it confusing because this is about the diaspora, although on this disuccsion page many people have expressed their feelings about the absence of not adding them. hmm maybe it will end the dispute? I am going to try and find more statistics on the TURKISH DIASPORA but I urge users not to use the joshuaproject as it is not very realiable, although i do undersand that it is difficult to find many more the data required Thetruthonly (talk) 12:03, 27 June 2008 (UTC) 1. According to joshuaproject there is sizeable communities in Brazil, Egypt, Venezula, Lebanon. and El Salvador. I understand that the website is not exactly realiable however this information can guide us to look for realiable statistics of these...
This article says in the intro that it "refers to the estimated population of Turkish people in the world migrated outside of Turkey." According to this article from Radio Free Europe (The Iraqi Turkomans: Who They Are And What They Want): Therefore, I would say that the Iraqi Turkmen are closely related to the Turks of Turkey, but not the same. IMO we should remove them from this list, as there is no question that they are a Turkic people, but I'm not so sure if they consider themselves to be Turkish. Mutual linguistic comprehensibility does not necessarily translate to ethnicity. Khoikhoi05:05, 23 July 2008 (UTC)
