An Egyptian born every 23.4 seconds

According to the latest census from the National Centre for Mobilisation and Statistics from January 2006 the total population is 73.6 million people, including 2.3 million Egyptians living abroad. Since the year 2000 the population has increased with 1.3 million annualy. The average life span for men is 69 years, and for women 73.

The interesting figures is as always those concerning the young population, and the statistics tells us that 37.7 percent of the Egyptians are under 15 and 40.8 percent are between the ages of 15 and 40. that is 78.5 percent...

I´m thinking apartments... marriage... poverty reduction, and President Mubaraks election promises. It feels reasuring that we have such an excellent team in charge of our economics, they will spear no effort focusing on job creation, the Prime minister and his economical trio of star quality, Yousef Boutros Ghali, Mahmoud Muhieddin and Rachid Mohamed Rachid will fix it! I have no doubt what so ever! It´s also a good sign that the Egyptian stock exchange is doing so well.
