This study aimed to measure the impact of financial inclusion on economic growth in a sample of Arab countries during the period from 2011 to 2017. Due to the nature of the data used in the study, which represents a combination of time series and cross-sectional data, panel models (pooled model, fixed effects model, and random effects model) were employed and compared to determine the most efficient and statistically significant model for economic analysis. Additionally, a multivariate statistical analysis technique, namely cluster analysis, was adopted to study and discuss the status of financial inclusion and the variations among Arab countries in this regard.
