Right now, these maps are used in the article:
These maps are quite simply incorrect; the borders of the geographical regions of Turkey do not overlap with the borders of the administrative provinces.

Provinces in the Marmara Region
Since the borders do not overlap, there can be no clear-cut list of provinces in the Mediterranean Region.
Right now, this list is featured in the article:
This list is also incorrect.
If we want to list the provinces in the Mediterranean Region, we will need at least two, but preferable three categorizies:
- Provinces that are entirely in the Mediterranean Region.
- Provinces that are mostly in the Mediterranean Region.
- Provinces that are partially in the Mediterranean Region.
According to this map, which shows both geographical and provincial borders, the correct list should be as follows:
Since the geographical borders are imprecise (they don't overlap with district borders either), there is no convenient way to calculate the population of the geographical Mediterranean Region, or other geographical regions of Turkey for that matter. Any figure you see on the Internet in this regard is, at best, imprecise guesswork. I propose that we rank geographical regions among themselves and leave it at that. --Mttll (talk) 11:38, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
