Jordan Private Sector Survey for USAID Economic Growth and Competitiveness Assessment

USAID Jordan’s Monitoring and Evaluation Support Project (MESP) implemented the Private Sector Survey as part of the Economic Growth and Competitiveness Assessment conducted for USAID Economic Development and Energy. The assessment aimed at enhancing USAID’s understanding of challenges and opportunities as well as promising growth and employment strategies in Jordan. One component informing the assessment was represented by the Private Sector Survey.

Mindset was contracted by USAID MESP to conduct this survey in 2017. Through Mindset’s access to the most comprehensive and accurate business inventory in Jordan, a representative sample could be constructed and data was collected from more than 1,800 registered businesses (micro, small, medium, and large businesses) in ten different sectors throughout Jordan. The survey expanded on the World Bank Enterprise survey and other existing measures of private sector well-being to provide the most comprehensive view into the perceptions and perspectives of the Jordanian private sector on topics including company performance, employment, access to finance, the business enabling environment, connectedness, attitudes toward women and youth.
