This document presents the contemporary situation in the transition to adulthood among the Egyptian youth during the 1997 National Survey. More than 9000 Egyptian adolescents 10-19 years old and their parents were interviewed in the study. The first chapter sums up the objectives, definitions and the institutional collaboration used in the study. Chapter 2 presents the methodology used and scope of the study. Chapters 3-6 describe the characteristics of the sample, health and educational profiles and the economic roles of the Egyptian adolescents. Chapter 7 examines the social relationships of these adolescents towards family and peers, and the profiles of their family and peer psychological support. Chapter 8 discusses the transition of the youth to marriage and their reproductive roles. Chapter 9 describes the characteristics of adolescent marriage particularly in a woman's perspectives. The last chapter presents implications for advocacy and action on the major issues particularly on health priorities, education, employment, reproductive health, and married adolescents.
