Thus the slowest growth between and occurred in Yemen, where the annual rate of population growth was %. Because of the large growth gap between birth and death rates in the Arab countries, the age composition is very young. Such young age composition reduces measures of fertility and mortality that do not control for : Weller Rh. The book discusses the demographic changes in Muslim countries. It thereby focuses on topics such as the demographic dividend and the demographic transition, labour market challenges, health care, universal education and gender issues. These challenges are addressed at a country level and include. Introduction Demographic trends vary greatly between countries within the Arab region,1 whose population, in , reached a total of million. While some countries, such as Egypt, are highly populated, others. A. POPULATION SIZE The total population of the Arab region reached million in making up per cent of the world population,1and rising by million from the level, where it stood at million. By , the population of the Arab region is projected to reach million or per cent of the world population.

Countries in the Arab region are experiencing population movements from rural to urban areas, as young men and women leave tedious agricultural employment in search of “bright. 8 Overall, population growth in the region of North Africa, the Arabian Peninsula and the Middle East (20 countries) is still high: almost 2% per year. Though this growth rate is below that of sub-Saharan Africa (%), it is substantially higher than that of other developing regions, where annual growth is between and % (Table 1).

of these were encountered in the study of the Arab countries. This paper describes the approach taken in that study in meeting one of these problems, namely, the effect of a recent decline in mortality on the estimates of birth rates. 1/ Cairo Demographic Centre, Demographic Measures and Population Growth in Arab Countries, (Cairo) The rural-to-urban shift in Arab countries could have far-reaching implications on the agriculture, economy, environment and population of the region. Agricultural production is projected to decline owing to the rapid ageing of the rural population, thereby adversely affecting the rural economy. Two of the most populous Arab countries, Egypt and Morocco, lie far apart in geography, in their histories and in the size of their populations. Egypt has 57 million inhabitants, more than twice as many as Morocco’s million.  One thing they do share is a dramatic long-term rate of demographic growth. In the nine decades of this century, the populations of both countries have. population growth will gradually slow, in line with the trend in recent decades in the GCC and in most other countries. Even with these assumptions, however, the GCC’s population would grow from an estimated m in to m in –a 33% increase over 12 years. This level of population growth will require.
