Respondent Demographics - Morocco
  • Figure 1 shows the unweighted regional breakdown of respondents.
  • Figure 2 shows the unweighted and weighted percentages of urban and rural respondents by region.
  • Figure 3 shows the age distribution of men and women captured in the sample.
  • Figure 4 shows the weighted percentages of men and women by age groups.
  • Figure 5 shows education levels by gender. As seen below, the incidence of illiteracy is much higher among Moroccan women (48%) than men (23%).
  • Figure 6 shows languages spoken by respondents. A quarter of respondents identify themselves as Amazigh speaking and three quarters of respondents identify as Arabic speaking.
  • Figure 7 show marital status of women respondents and Figure 8 shows marital status of men respondents. The data shows more women report being currently married and formerly married than men. Also, over four in ten (42%) men respondents say they are single compared to half that percentage of women (22%).
  • Figure 9 shows respondents’ average number of children. The average number of children for currently/formerly married women is 3.66 and the average number of children for currently/formerly married men is 3.53.
  • Figure 10 shows the household income ranges of both men and women respondents. Respondents were shown the list of statements and were asked to identify which statement most closely resembles their household income situation. Most respondents fall in the middle categories with 35% saying they have enough money for well-balanced meals and 32% say they have enough money for food and clothes and are able to save some money.
  • Figure 11 shows the household income assessment in terms of household income categories. As seen in Figure 9, a majority of respondents fall into the middle categories: more than a third of respondents fall into the lower-middle income category and upper-middle income categories. Still, nearly two in ten respondents are in the lower-income range and only 9% are considered in the upper income range.
  • Figure 12 shows the gender discrepancy between men and women respondents who work for pay. The ratio of working men to working women is seven to one: 69% of Moroccan men work for pay compared with only 10% of Moroccan women.
  • Figure 13 shows respondents’ monthly earning levels from all paid work by gender. As seen below, employed women’s and men’s estimated monthly earnings are mostly the same. However, as illustrated in Figure 12, only 10% of women work for pay compared to 69% of men. It must be also noted that among both men and women, a sizable proportion of 20% did not reveal their monthly earnings and said they did not know or refused to answer the question.
