Abstract: This paper introduces the 2016 wave of the Jordan Labor Market Panel Survey (JLMPS). The 2016 wave is a follow up on the initial 2010 wave. There has been substantial turmoil in the region since 2010, including the onset of the Syrian conflict and influx of refugees into Jordan. The 2016 wave over-sampled areas with a high proportion of non-Jordanians to be able to represent and examine this important population. The paper describes this sampling strategy, attrition from 2010 to 2016, and weighting that corrects for attrition and accounts for the sampling strategy. We compare key demographic measures and labor market statistics with other sources of data on Jordan to demonstrate the sample’s representativeness. The data provides an important opportunity for detailed analysis of Jordan’s changing labor market and society.
