AMMAN — The Cabinet on Sunday approved the hiring of 200 persons for the Department of Statistics (DOS) to carry out a field survey on population and family health in Jordan during the year 2017, according to the Jordan News Agency, Petra.

140 women and 50 men holding bachelor’s degrees, were employed to carry out fieldwork, while 10 high school graduates were hired to support administrative work. The team will work periodically until the survey — which aims to provide data on family health, mortality and healthcare for children and mothers — is released in May 2018.
