ICPSR (Inter University Consortium for Political and Social Research) holds several datasets that can shed light on recent events in Egypt.  They include:  Youth, Emotional Energy, and Political Violence:  The Cases of Egypt and Saudi Arabia Survey, 2005 .  This dataset explores the values, opinions and sociopolitical and cultural attitudes of youth in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.  Specific topics include religion, marriage, political systems, employment, freedom, and economic development.

Voice of the People, 2005 is an annual survey that was conducted in 67 countries, including Egypt, and it asked respondents about their countries' system of government, whether democracy is the best system, and additional topics such as income inequality and crime.

Other Egypt-related datasets address issues related to aging, crime, international aid, and other social and economic indicators.

These datasets are part of the ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) .  Auburn University students, faculty, and staff only may create an account that will allow access to the membership-only data.
