AMMAN —AlGhad— The Jordanian share per capita of Gross Domestic Income (GDP) has decreased by JOD475 in six years, due to the economic slowdown, weighed by a 13.7 per cent growth in population, driven by the influx of Syrian refugees.

In 2011, indices show income per capita stood at JOD3,227, with nearly 6.1 million people residing in Jordan, when GDP stood at JOD20.4 billion.

The slowdown has affected the distribution per capita, driving it down to JOD2,782 in 2016, with 9.8 million residing in the Kingdom.

Meanwhile, the national product in 2016 stood at JOD27.4 billion.
