IRI’s Latest Jordan Poll Examines Public’s Expectations of Government, Perception of Their Democracy

November 25, 2019

In March and April 2019, the International Republican Institute (IRI) conducted a poll to understand the Jordanian public’s expectations of the role of citizens and government and their perception of their democracy. The data is available here.

As the Jordanian government continues to push forward on decentralization ahead of the 2020 parliamentary elections, IRI’s Center for Insights in Survey Research partnered with NAMA Strategic Intelligence Solutions to conduct a nationally representative poll of Jordanian adults for which n=3,200 interviews were conducted ​across the 12 governorates. This provides local government officials, political parties and active citizens with information on the needs and priorities of Jordanians.

The 2015 National Census was used to design and draw the sample using a stratified cluster proportional to size sampling method. The data was weighted to ensure its national representativeness across age groups, governorates, and educational attainment.​ The margin of error is plus or minus 2.5 percent at the midrange of the 95 percent confidence level.​ The response rate was 78 percent.
