Connecting to the province of Kastamonu with the status of sanjak in the Ottoman State Period, Sinop gained the status of a separate province together with the Republican Period. The change in the administrative and economic structures of the city was directly related to the variety of business sectors in the city and the existence of labor force. Agriculture-livestock-hunting and fishing occupied the first place among the business sectors in the province. They were respectively followed by building construction, mining products-machine manufacturing, wood products, weaving and mining industry. Apart from various occupational groups, when it is taken only from the point of determined occupational groups, it is understood that there were 509 civil servants (male: 487; female: 22), 84 military men, 36 judges, 21 PTT officers and 257 freelancers (male: 225; female: 32). In this study, it was aimed to reveal the economic potential of Sinop in the early years of the Republican Period in the light of the 1927 census and industrial data and the 1935 census data. The emerging change tried to be made sense of by comparing the results obtained from both sets of data in tables.
