The Country Opinion Survey in Jordan assists the World Bank Group (WBG) in gaining a better understanding of how stakeholders in Jordan perceive the WBG. It provides the WBG with systematic feedback from national and local governments, multilateral/bilateral agencies, media, academia, the private sector, and civil society in Jordan on 1) their views regarding the general environment in Jordan; 2) their overall attitudes toward the WBG in Jordan; 3) overall impressions of the WBG’s effectiveness and results, knowledge work and activities, and communication and information sharing in Jordan; and 4) their perceptions of the WBG’s future role in Jordan.

From May to July 2022, 385 stakeholders of the WBG in Jordan were invited to provide their opinions on the WBG’s work in the country by participating in a Country Opinion Survey. Participants were drawn from the Royal Hashemite Court, office of the Prime Minister, office of a Minister, office of a member of Parliament/Legislative body, employees of ministries/ ministerial departments/implementation agencies; Project Management Units (PMUs) overseeing implementation of WBG projects; consultants/ contractors working on WBG-supported projects/programs; local governments; independent government institutions; the judicial system; state-owned enterprises; bilateral and multilateral agencies; private sector organizations; the financial sector/private banks; private foundations; NGOs and community-based organizations; professional/trade associations; faith-based groups; youth groups; academia/research institutes/think tanks; and the media.
The response rate was 38%
The results in this year’s Country Survey were compared to those in the Country Survey conducted in FY’16 (response rate was 27%, N=85). Comparing responses across Country Surveys reflect changes in attitudes over time, but also changes in respondent samples and changes to the survey instrument itself. To reduce the influence of the latter factor, only those questions with similar response scales/options were analyzed. The distribution of respondent samples from the FY’16 and FY’22 Country Surveys used in the year comparisons analyses are listed in the table below. This year’s survey saw an increased outreach to and response from bilateral/multilateral agencies and the media, but a decrease in responding from academia and private sector. These differences in stakeholder composition among survey respondents need to be taken into account when interpreting the results of the past-year comparison analyses.
