In October 2012, CARE Jordan released the findings of its baseline assessment on Syrian refugees living in Amman. Prior to this, no comprehensive assessment of Syrian refugees had been conducted, causing a scarcity of information regarding the needs of, and gaps in services available to, the Syrian refugee community living in urban areas. As Amman has markedly different characteristics from other cities in Jordan, it became necessary to conduct a new baseline assessment with Syrian households living in those communities, and analyze and compare findings from the two assessments. In early 2013, a research team working under the auspices of CARE Jordan conducted a participatory assessment and baseline survey of Syrian refugee households living in the cities of Irbid, Madaba, Mufraq, and Zarqa.
