Tunisia - Rural Youth Survey 2012

Short Name: 
TUN 2012 RYS 

Tunisia Rural Youth Survey (RYS) was implemented in 2012 in rural areas, building on the data collection in urban areas. The survey was conceived by a group of Tunisian professors and students, called Projet Citoyen, from various universities in Tunisia, particularly from Ecole Superieure des Sciences Economiques et Commerciales de Tunis (ESSECT). Motivated by the observed differences between different parts of the country, including neighborhoods in the Grand Tunis area, the aim of the survey was to scientifically understand urban inequality, with a specific focus on economic opportunities for young people. This effort led to collaboration between the Tunisian National Statistical Office (Institut National de la Statistique or INS), the General Commissariat for Regional Development, and the World Bank. The INS provided the sampling frame, the commissariat, as the main government counterpart, provided guidance for the scope of the survey and its urban focus, and the World Bank provided technical and financial support.

The 2012 National Survey on Household and Youth in Rural Areas covered the following topics: Relacement, Household Members Characteristics, Educational Characteristics, Economic Characteristics, Unemployment, Migration Of Household Members, Previous Houshold Members, Youth Livelihood, Incidence Of Shocks And Household Responses, Housing Characteristics And Conditions, Basic Facilities.
