The main aim of this project is to construct a database for the empirical study on the social economy in the Arab countries; especially Egypt and Jordan that are now facing severe social and economic problems. For this aim, the project focused on collecting and panelizing household-based micro data obtained by conducting social surveys at the smallest unit of administration: village and towns. The panel data are constructed by repeating the survey of the households concerned after several years, and used for analyzing the social and economic changes at household level. This method is effective to clarify not only the static economic actions of the heads of the households concerned; patterns of consumption, saving, employment and so on, but also the dynamics of the changes in economic life, life cycle and so on. Some parts of the research results has already been published based on the collected household-based micro data.
