According to an opinion poll implemented by ASDA'A Burson-Marsteller about the views of Arab youth, 72% of the Lebanese expressed their concern with regards to the rising unemployment in Lebanon compared to 22% who indicated that they are not worried about this and 6% noting that they had no comment. According to the same study, 88% of the Lebanese also expressed their concern regarding the rising cost of living in Lebanon and 78% stating that the government should subsidize the cost of electricity and transportation. It is to be noted that the poll covered some 3500 individual interviews with young women and men with ages ranging between 18 to 24 years and covered Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Jordan, Palestine, Qatar, KSA, Tunisia and Yemen.
