The following symbols have been used throughout this paper:

… to indicate that data are not available;

— to indicate that the figure is zero or less than half the final digit shown, or that the item does not exist;

n.a. to indicate that the item is not applicable;

– between years or months (e.g., 1991–92 or January–June) to indicate the years or months covered, including the beginning and ending years or months;

/ between years (e.g., 1991/92) to indicate a crop or fiscal (financial) year.

“Billion” means a thousand million.

Minor discrepancies between constituent figures and totals are due to rounding.

The term “country,” as used in this paper, does not in all cases refer to a territorial entity that is a state as understood by international law and practice; the term also covers some territorial entities that are not states, but for which statistical data are maintained and provided internationally on a separate and independent basis.


The papers presented in this study were prepared by staff members who have participated in cooperative exchanges between Jordan and the IMF over the past three years. The authors acknowledge the excellent research assistance provided by Use-Marie Fayad and secretarial support by Irene Carpenter, Susan Jones, and Mary Ann Miles. The authors are also grateful to Elisa Diehl of the External Relations Department, who edited the paper for publication and coordinated production.

The views expressed here, as well as any errors, are the sole responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the opinion of the Government of Jordan, the Executive Directors of the IMF, or other members of the IMF staff.

The study was completed in August 1995 and is based on information available at that time.
