01 February 2021
This study analysed, from a gender perspective, the effects of COVID-19 on health, social and economic aspects in Jordan during the period from March until the middle of the year of 2020. In May 2020, the Center for Strategic Studies at the University of Jordan, with support from UN Women, and at the request of the Economic & Social Council, conducted a national survey to identify the impacts of the pandemic through a gender lens in light of the restrictions imposed to prevent the spread of the disease. The survey was conducted through extended telephone calls with 1,300 respondents, 663 of whom were female (51%) and 637 male (49%) respondents, representing different societal segments and the various regions and governorates.
