In this edition of Brookings Data Now: living in energy poverty; cash for clunkers; Egyptians' view on their standard of living; Cuban workers in the private sector; Syrian refugees living in Turkey.
This amounts to 20 percent of the world's population living in "energy poverty." As many as two billion more have limited access only.
The average rebate was $4,200.
At the fall of President Mubarak in 2011, unemployment in Egypt was 9 percent; at President Morsi's fall in 2013, it was 13.5 percent.
Out of a workforce of 5.1 million people, over 1 million are fully private sector, with 600,000 to 1 million more are likely working in the private sector.
An estimated one-third of them live in 21 refugee camps.
