Conducted by the Jordan Center for Social Research and supported by IRI, the poll surveyed 1,500 men and women (500 each in 110 locations throughout Salt, Zarqa, and Tafilah) on their attitudes regarding the most important challenges facing municipalities in Jordan; local governance; the degree of citizens’ satisfaction with services provided by the municipality; evaluation of the current municipal council as compared with previous councils; women’s political participation at the municipal level; and the criteria that should apply to candidates for municipal office.
The poll was conducted by 57 field researchers from September 13-17, 2005. The margin of error is ± two percent. Field work for this poll was conducted by Middle East Marketing and Research Consultants.
The Jordan Center for Social Research is an independent, non-profit think tank based in Amman.Top
