characteristics Budget per government department Comment reviewer: it seems that detailed tables are not accessible or even removed, therefore this is deemed only the budget per government department. As a non turkish speaker it is hard to judge if all budget data is available, but the 2016 draft law seems detailed enough.

Comment reviewer: the budget documents seem available. Although, what is odd it seemed that only the 2016 draft budget law was complete. Other documents seem to contain to little data, and mostly provided lists of budget for universities, that I only considered that draft budget law 2016 as a full budget document.
