Survey finds young Arabs want less religion

  • The results from individual countries are based on very small samples, ranging from 150 to 300.
  • Opinion among rural Arabs is not represented. The interviewees are city dwellers — which may make a difference.
  • Qatar, Syria and Sudan are not included in the survey.
  • The survey is organised by a PR firm in Dubai and its findings tend to be presented with an Emirati spin.
