Statistics In Focus - Population & Housing in Lebanon
This issue of SIF looks briefly at the population and housing characteristics in Lebanon using key indicators and figures available from a number of surveys conducted by the Central Administration of Statistics (CAS) in Lebanon in recent years. Its objective is to provide users with important information on the population and housing in Lebanon enabling them to understand the current situation and to compare Lebanon to neighbouring countries. For this publication we have primarily used the most recent available data from the Multiple Indicators Clusters Survey, Round 3 (MICS3) conducted by the Central Administration of Statistics (CAS) in 2009 in partnership with the UNICEF-Beirut office. However for some indicators we used surveys previously conducted by CAS or administrative data sources gathered by other Ministries. This will be noted where applicable. The Arabic version of the study is also included in this package.
