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.




The state of health in a population is shaped by the prevailing sanitary and environmental conditions, the quality and accessibility of health services, and the ability of individuals to make healthy choices in their lives. This section presents available data on reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health; lifestyle; and health risk factors and health facilities, expenditures and resources across the Arab region.
