Abstract

This collection is the first to analyse the results of the Jordan Labour Market Panel Survey of 2010 (JLMPS 2010), a major household survey of labour market conditions carried out in Jordan by the Economic Research Forum. The chapters cover topics that are essential to understanding the conditions leading to the Arab Spring, including the persistence of high youth unemployment despite fairly healthy economic growth, the co-existence of in-migration, high unemployment, and out-migration, the very low and stagnant female participation rates despite rapid increases in educational attainment and delayed marriage among Jordanian women, and the unusually early retirement among prime-age male workers. The chapters make use of this unique data set to provide a fresh analysis of the Jordanian labour market that was simply not feasible with previously existing data. The book will prove to be essential reading for anyone interested in the Economics of the Middle East and the political economy of the Arab Spring.
