Workshop on Classification in the ESCWA Region Beirut, Lebanon, 19-23 July 2004

Jordan experience in the work with

the economic and social classifications

Abdelwadoud Matouk

Director of Economic Surveys

slide2

Introduction

Jordan has a central statistical system located at the

Department of Statistics (DoS).

DoS is responsible for conducting population,

economic and agricultural censuses.

DoS conducts periodical surveys in the social,

economic and agricultural fields on the national level.

DoS also prepares the external trade ststistics and

calculates the GDP through the National Account

Division.

slide3

DoS gathers and tabulates statistical data from other

Public Institutions and Disseminates it in the Annual

Statistical Yearbook.

The new law of DoS issued in 2003, allowed other public or private institutions to carry out surveys after getting the permission of DoS to make sure that such data does not exist. The new law also permitted DoS to supply data users with the raw data for further analysis as long as it doesn’t refer to the identity of the establishment.

DoS is the leading national institution in using and

applying International Classifications in Jordan.

slide7

Shortcomings in the Coordination Among Other Agencies

Comprehensiveness of frame

Inaccurate coding

Differences on the 6 digit Level of ISIC

Data Base updating problems (MoIT)

slide8

What has been Done?

Issuing a unique national number for each

establishment.

Coordination with other institutions to unify the

ISIC codes.

AL-Manar Project / Canadian Project with the National

Center for Human Resources Development in Jordan.

slide9

AL-Manar Project

A committee representing concerned institutions was

formed ( two members from DoS).

Institutions represented were:

- National Center for Human Resources

Development

- DoS

- Social Security Institution

- Civil Service Bureau

- Ministry of Labor

- Ministry of Higher Education

slide10

The committee also asked assistance from other institutions such as the Ministry of Interior and the Occupation Training Institution by adding a representative when needed.

The committee revised three International

Classifications and one local classification

- ISIC3

- ISCED-97

- ISCO-88

- Geographical Code for Localities (GCL)

slide11

The output of the committee was:

- A (7 digit) classification of the ISCO-88, where

the seventh digit represented the degree of skill

ranging from ( 1 to 5 ).

- A (6 digit) classification of the ISCED-97, where the

first digit represented the level of education ranging

from ( 1 to 6 ).

slide12

- A ( 6 digit ) classification of the ISIC 3.1, where

it was revised from another specialized committee

and is expected to be printed within a couple of

weeks.

- The Jordanian ISCO and the ISCED were revised

and verified by the ILO and the UNESCO and

found that they correspond with the international

classification.

slide13

Central Product Classification CPC and

the new UNSD Industrial Commodity List

DoS has started using CPC1 in coding the inputs

and the outputs in 1994.

The CPC used was on the 7 digit level which was

prepared by DoS.

The 7 digit level was prepared to build the Supply

and Use tables.

The Supply and Use tables were not prepared until

now.

slide14

DoS Experience in Coding the Industrial Commodities Using CPC

Coding the products was not so accurate on the seven digit, therefore the estimates for the quantities and values of the products were not accurate as well due to the following reasons:

  • Quantities were difficult to collect from the

establishments, specially the small ones.

  • The big establishments provides DoS with their

annual report which is mainly in monetary terms.

slide15

Dos started implementing the 93 SNA in 1999

which added lots of details to the questionnaires

and made them bigger.

  • The bigger questionnaire imposed extra burden

on the respondents and increased the non-response

percentage.

  • Some of the establishments which produce more

than one product usually reports them collectively

such as plastic products or bakery products ..etc.

slide16

Regardless of that, some commodities can be

well estimated such as Cement, phosphate, Marble,

Granite..etc. (see the marked UNSD Industrial

Commodity List).

  • Data collected about the above mentioned

commodities are in terms of value only.

slide17

Comments on the proposed new UNSDICL

There are no comments on the items in the commodity

list taking into consideration that some commodities

are not applicable in Jordan.

There are no comments on the measuring units of the

the commodities.

Taking into consideration the problems mentioned

about estimating the quantities and values for detailed

commodities, DoS can still provide good estimates

for about 100 commodities out of the list.
