Web edition Tabulation report

The Perceptions of Good Jobs study has been conducted in order to better understand and explain how jobs are perceived in a number of selected countries. The report is primarily targeted to provide inputs towards the WDR 2013 and is part of a series of studies conducted on perceptions of good jobs in four countries: Colombia, China, Egypt and Sierra Leone. The main emphasis has been to explore the nature of jobs that affect living standards and enhance social cohesion. The report addresses the following research questions:

  • What are the most important factors affecting labor force participation?
  • What are the relations between jobs and household wealth?
  • Can perceptions and stereotyping of jobs be regarded as constraints for job creation?
  • What are the linkages between job benefits and job stability?
  • What are the determinants of job satisfaction?
  • Jobs can be evaluated using a human empowerment perspective by focusing on three features of a job: cognitive, creative and autonomous activities. What is the relationship between job status and human empowerment?
  • Does inclusion in the labor force contribute to increased social trust and confidence in institutions?

This study is conducted in urban Cairo and rural Fayoum, Egypt.
