Egypt Census Data

Census data provides unparalleled insight into the lives of individuals. Egypt census offerings from East View address a wide range of topics at the highest level of detail possible and offer a premier source of demographic data for academic research.

When initially acquired, the census data is stored in a complex database structure, with attribute descriptions in Arabic, limiting access to those with significant database management and programming experience. East View simplifies access, formatting the collection into an easy-to-use geodatabase which can be visualized using any GIS software and providing a comprehensive guide. Additionally, East View provides the original census documentation, allowing researchers to see first-hand how the data was gathered.

East View offers the following census data for Egypt (see below for details):
