ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the trends in the components of population growth in the Arab countries of the Middle East. It is quite true that apart from the United Arab Republic, which has a long series of censuses, relatively good vital statistics, and a number of demographic surveys, most of the countries have only a little information to offer to the student of demography. Lebanon, one of the most developed of these countries, does not have even one modern census; and registration of births and deaths there is so deficient that published data are of very little use. The same is more or less true about registration in Jordan, Syria, and Iraq. Jordan and Syria are awaiting termination of the tabulation processes of their first modern censuses, but Iraq, with two censuses al- ready taken, is much richer in this respect. The city of Kuwait has more foreigners than Kuwaitis, with the latter numbering only 41 percent of the city's population. Judging from the rural-urban and occupational distributions of the population, Iraq is, like her neighbors, mainly rural.
