In the hope of widening the audience of this publication, the eleventh issue is intended not only as a reference for policymakers and other officials, but also as a snapshot of trends in the region for readers with an interest in the social climate of Western Asia, including academics, students, journalists and the general public.



Housing conditions

Decent housing is a both need and a right for families. It has a direct impact on the health and well-being of a population and provides a secure environment for the development of society. Six indicators of housing conditions are used in this section: average number of persons per room, tenure of housing units, existence of flush toilet inside the housing unit, access to public piped water, availability of public sewage network, and source of electricity. The data used here mainly come from national household surveys and the 2000 and 2010 census rounds.
