The proportions and dimensions or glazed areas, are derived by various engineering methods regarding the daylight utilization and thermal energy principles and the economic use of materials in Turkey. The daytime hours of occupancy of the dwelling (based on the social variables like the household size, the percentages of the housewifes, the pre-school children, the unemployed and the elderly), the religious beliefs, traditions, life styles and energy consumption patterns e.t.c. are not considered however at the state of the art. This pver will attempt to evaluate the social data which may be included in criteria for setting the dimensions and proportions of glazed areas in terms of the demographic statistics based mostly on 1990 census for Turkey, compared with figures of the 15 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Luxemburg, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom) of the European kingdom.
