Summary 

The STEPS Noncommunicable Disease Risk Factors Survey uses a survey methodology developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) to help countries establish noncommunicable disease surveillance systems. The methodology prescribes three steps—questionnaire, physical measurements, and biochemical measurements. Core topics covered by most surveys are demographics, health status, and health behaviors. These provide data on socioeconomic risk factors and metabolic, nutritional, and lifestyle risk factors. 

The Jordan Ministry of Health conducted the first survey in this series in 2002 in collaboration with the WHO and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The Jordanian survey covers smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, physical activity, physical measurements, and biochemical measurements.

Only reports are currently available. No data have been released.
