Dashes above vowels as diactritic marks are not correctly shown, they are poorly replaced by accent acute. Points under consonants are not placed at all.
Source "SJ" = "Statistical yearbook Jordan".
Due to the use of several sources and the different terminology of what an urban settlement is, or an urban sub-district is, there are some strange raptures between the columns.
For the places on the "West Bank" see the separate file of the country "Palestine".
