Abstract:

The 2002 Jordan Population and Familiy Health Survey (JPFHS) is a nationally representative sample conducted by the Department of Statistics (DOS) during the period July-September 2002. The survey sample was designed to obtain reliable estimates for the major survey variables. The survey results are representative at the national level, urban and rural residence, the three regions, and each of the three major governorates: Amman, Zarqa, and Irbid. The sample is based on the frame provided by the 1994 Population and Housing Census.
