October 27 – 28, 2019 Cairo, Egypt
The study of labor market behaviors and dynamics is a central part of Egypt’s development process and the creation of new jobs. Since good quality data is the basis for any sound scientific research, the Economic Research Forum has invested time and effort in carrying out the Egyptian labor market survey over the past 20 years. The Economic Research Forum conducted four survey rounds in 1998, 2006, 2012 and recently 2018, in collaboration with CAPMAS.
The 2018 Egyptian Labor Market Panel Survey measures several indicators related to employment, labor market activity, household economic status and property, education, health, marriage, family formation and migration. The survey also measures indicators of employment instability, mental health, disability, self-belief, women’s empowerment, food security, hazardous work, community infrastructure, housing costs, agricultural livelihoods, and coping strategies for traumatized households.
