The 2017-18 Jordan Population and Family Health Survey (JPFHS) is the seventh Demographic and Health Survey to be conducted in Jordan. Like the first six JPFHS surveys, conducted respectively in 1990,
1997, 2002, 2007, 2009, and 2012, the 2017-18 JPFHS was carried out by the Department of Statistics (DOS). The main objective of the survey is to provide comprehensive data on fertility and mortality, family planning, and maternal and child health and nutrition. The information will be used as a tool to evaluate existing population and health policies and programs.
The 2017-18 Jordan Population and Family Health Survey (JPFHS) was implemented by the Department of Statistics (DOS) from early October 2017 to January 2018. The funding for the JPFHS was provided by the government of Jordan, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). ICF provided technical assistance through The DHS Program, a USAID-funded project providing support and technical assistance
in the implementation of population and health surveys in countries worldwide.
