Arab Society: Demographic and Social Trends, Issue No. 15

December 2021

This publication is the latest in a series published biennially by the Statistics Division of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). Previously, this publication was titled Arab Society: A Compendium of Demographic and Social Statistics; the title has since been changed to Arab Society: Demographic and Social Trends, as there is a renewed focus on displaying data over time. Focusing on population dynamics, household composition, family formation, housing conditions, health, education, labour, poverty, inequality, culture, and social participation, the report presents a broad illustration of Arab society and the ways in which it has been changing.

Data have been drawn primarily from the national statistical offices of ESCWA member States supplemented by publicly accessible data from international agencies such as the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the World Bank and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
