  • Housing : 40% houses are built from full concrete 60% are built from concrete covered by metal sheets . Some have a shortage of electricity and water supply
  • Poverty is about 80 % of population , 60% are unemployed . when employed person ,he works in simple works which gives very low salary which reaches 50JD/month (75USD) .
