Population & Family Health

The Population and Family Health Survey (PFHS) is implemented in Jordan to evaluate the existing population and health programs and policies through the results of indicators revealed by the survey. The Department of Statistics (DoS) has implemented seven previous surveys of its kind within a series of Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), and the current Jordan Population and Family Health Survey (JPFHS 2023) is the 8th survey that has been implemented in Jordan.

The JPFHS 2023 aims to provide up-to-date information on fertility, family planning, child and infant mortality, child feeding practice, and maternal and child health. In addition, the JPFHS 2023 provides data related to the level of awareness about the virus that causes AIDS and the related behavior, domestic violence, and early childhood development.

The JPFHS 2023 was implemented within a representative sample at the national level, urban and rural, regions, and governorates, in addition to representing the community by nationality (Jordanian, Syrian outside the camp, Syrian inside the camp, and other nationalities) as tools and digital facts for evaluating the programs and drawing up population and health policies by decision and policy makers.
