Executive Summary

During October and November of 2015, Zogby Research Services conducted face-to-face polls, sur- veying 5,374 Muslims between the ages of 15 and 34 in eight Arab countries: Morocco, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Jordan, and Palestine. We had been commissioned by the Tabah Foundation to explore attitudes of the Muslim millennial generation, speci cally with respect to their attitudes toward religious identity, authority and religious leadership, religion and politics, personal religious devotion, reform, and religious extremism. 

Sampling Methodology

The approach used for conducting the poll involved face-to-face, personal interviews. Urban as well as rural centres were covered in each country to cover a widespread geography. The sample obtained is nationally rep- resentative and is comprised of adult Muslim males and females, who are 15–34 years of age.

Sampling for the polls varied by country. In Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, and Kuwait, where door-to-door sampling is not possible, a referral sampling approach was used. In the remaining countries where ran- dom, door-to-door sampling is possible a multi-stage sampling methodology was employed for selection of respondents.
