This study aims to investigate the causal relationship between agriculture, industry, and service sectors for Turkey. For this purpose, the panel causality analysis developed by Dumitrescu and Hurlin (2012) was performed for Turkey's general and seven geographical regions, using panel data covering 81 provinces from 2004 to 2017. Within the framework of this analysis, the key sectors that drive economic growth were examined for seven regions. According to the findings obtained from the panel causality test, the agriculture sector is fed by industry and service sectors, and the key sectors those direct general economic growth are different by region.
