Laws and Principles
The Department of Statistics (DoS) is one of the first government institutions that have accompanied the establishment of the Jordanian state. The DoS was founded in 1949 and the first General Statistics Law (No. 24 of 1950 and its amendments) has been issued. The second was the Provisional General Statistical Law No. 8 of 2003 to regulate its work as an institution specialized in statistical work and to define its functions and responsibilities as the only governmental agency authorized to collect information and statistical data. The third and latest issued statistical act was the General Statistics Law No. 12 of 2012.
