Morocco 2009-2010 Household and Youth Survey

Short Name: 
MAR 2009 MHYS 

From December 2009 to March 2010 the World Bank with the help of Moroccan government conducted a study of the country's young people and their engagement in economic and social activities. Researchers from the World Bank's Sustainable Development Sector of the Middle East and North Africa region utilized a mixed-method approach to study factors that impede the economic and social inclusion of Moroccans aged 15 to 29. The Morocco Household and Youth Survey (MHYS) used two survey instruments to gather quantitative data: Household Questionnaire and Youth Questionnaire.

The study used a nationally representative sample of 2,000 households, in which 1,216 households were located in urban areas and 784 households in the rural areas. The Youth Questionnaire was administered to 2,883 young people between the ages of 15 and 29, representing about 90 percent of the youth in the surveyed households. Information was collected on topics such as economic inclusion, community participation, and use of key public services. The survey was able to examine little studied issues relating to youth such as participation in the labor force, intermediation, career choice, perceived job possibilities, use of time, use of recreational and educational activities targeting young people who have completed formal education.

All survey information and data is available through the World Bank Microdata Catalog.
