Introduction

Arab Society: A Compendium of Social Statistics is the latest in a series of biennial compendia of the Statistics Division of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA). It provides a broad description of Arab society in the region and how it is changing over time. Drawing on data provided mainly from National Statistical Offices (NSOs), it focuses on population dynamics, employment, education, housing conditions, health, poverty and culture. Other issues of social concern such as crime, justice or social protection have been omitted due to the lack of reliable data.
