Egypt’s population witnessed a dramatic increase during the last decade and was estimated at 92.3 million people by the Central Agency for Public Mobilization and Statistics (CAPMAS) compared to 72 million people in 2006. In absolute terms, the population of Egypt has increased by over 20 million in 10 years. This steady increase threatens to hinder all development efforts with major implications on quality of life and on basic services including education, health, housing and water supply. 

Population Situation Analysis Report (PSA) presents an analysis for Egypt’s latest population situation. This new analysis is required, given the changes in the political, economic, social and environmental arenas occurring in the recent few years. Through UNFPA’s support, Baseera was able to analyze Egypt’s population situation in collaboration with the National Population Council (NPC) in order to pave a roadmap of solutions.
