Between October 2015 and August 2016, Power2Youth implemented almost identical national representative perception surveys of young people aged 18-29 in six countries of the South East Mediterranean: Palestine, Morocco, Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt and Tunisia . Major topics were education, employment, trust, perception of services and key national institutions, perception of gender roles and gender equality, political interest, civic and political participation, use of social media, use of space and migration, family relations and psychological well-being.
The questionnaires were very similar across countries. While the sampling approach (details on sampling are found in the introductions to the English tabulation reports) was not identical in all countries, the results are representative at the national level. Table 1 provides an overview of the realized sample for each country. In all countries taken together, a total of 7,579 young people were successfully interviewed.
