I know Wikipedia is not the most trusted source of information but when it comes to data about a country I think someone should take responsibility to correct this information unless the data below is correct. In the list below, it seems “ethnic Jordanian” refers to Jordanians who consider themselves as Jordanians from a Jordanian origin, they add up to only 17% of the Jordanian population 1% less than the Iraqis!

I have been away from Jordan for too long so I am not sure about the numbers below but I think 17% is too small. Beside, the sum of these percentages is not equal to 100%. What do you think?
Ethnic and religious toleration: Jordan’s population has a very diverse background.
60% – Palestinian
18% – Iraqi
17% – ethnic Jordanian
~5% – Armenians, Chechens, Circassians, other
