JCAP conducted an in-depth, population-based survey to assess knowledge, attitudes and practices (KAP) of married women of reproductive age (MWRA) across northern, central and southern Jordan. The KAP survey documented their fertility choices and family planning and also assessed social and cultural norms and behavioral determinants related to gender roles, empowerment, decision-making and sources of family planning information. The survey covered a sample of 4,076 MWRA including 3,288 Jordanian women living in sixteen districts. In addition, the survey included 788 Syrian women from four of the districts with large Syrian populations to generate a broadly representative sample of Syrian MWRA. Since it was a purposive sample, Syrian women in this study should not be considered as fully representative of Syrian women in the three regions or in the nation as a whole.
