Hesham Okasha, Abla Abdel-Latif, and Ahmed Dawoud

Detailed analysis of Q3 revealed several important findings. Job growth is slowing severely nationwide, and jobs are becoming highly concentrated. Cairo alone accounts for more than two-thirds of available jobs in Egypt. Some 90 percent of jobs are concentrated in only 6 governorates: Cairo, Giza, Alexandria, Qalyubia, Sharkia, and Gharbia.
