This report presents the findings of a quantitative and qualitative examination of the phenomenon of early marriage. The period covered by the statistical analysis is 2005-2012, and also includes findings from a limited range of data available in relation to 2013 and the first quarter of 2014. Annual reports of the Department of the Chief Justice (Qadi Al Qudah) provide an overview for the years 2005-2011, while more comprehensive data available from 2011, 2012 and 2013 allowed the construction of a more complete snapshot of early marriage practices among Jordanians, as well as Palestinians and Syrians currently living in Jordan.
