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 general view of Arab society in the ESCWA region and the changes it has encountered over time. Drawing on data provided mainly from national statistics offices (NSOs), it focuses on issues of population, labour, housing conditions, education, poverty, health and culture. Each issue of the Compendium focuses on a single theme. The twelfth issue of the Compendium concerns household composition and family formation.




Reducing poverty has been one of the main priorities on the international development agenda, and it is the first of the 17 Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals. In the Arab region, increased attention by policymakers has been given to reducing poverty and eradicating extreme forms of deprivation.
