The study evaluates the population shift towards decreased growth rates in Jordan, considering factors such as migration and the COVID-19 pandemic, since the announcement of the population opportunity in 2009. Economic measurement methods were used to identify the factors and their role in slowing down population growth over time. The study found that an increase in the children category by 1% leads to a 1.05% increase in the dependency rate, indicating a variation in the effect of demographics on dependency rates. The study also found that the COVID-19 crisis had a 0.05% impact on the actual dependency rate, which is declining slowly over time.
