Youth and New Media in the Middle East: The Stats

July 17, 2011 , 0 Comments

This chart shows rates of internet penetration and mobile phone use in countries across the Arab Middle East, as well as the percentage of the population under 30 in each country. Stats are based on 2010 figures taken from the US Census Bureau, International Telecommunications Union and internetwordstats.

We found this chart on the Lowy Institute for International Policy's interpreter blog, For an interesting analysis of these figures, check out their post 'A look at the networked Middle East.'
