Abstract: The study examined the impact of the higher education output on unemployment rates in Jordan for the period 2000-2016. This study used the simple linear regression model to test the hypothesis of the study. the study found that the output of higher education in Jordan had a positive and significant impact on the level of unemployment in Jordan, where the output coefficient of higher education is (0.3) with the remaining factors are fixed, i.e. if the output of higher education increased by 1%, this will lead to an increase of unemployment by 0.3%, and this is due to the weakness of linking the outputs of higher education with the requirements of the Jordanian labor market. The study recommended the necessary of linking the outputs of higher education to the requirements of the Jordanian labor market to reduce unemployment rates.
