|Introduction: Data collection for the 2015 Energy Consumption Survey in Transport Sector (ECSTS) will be conducted between March and May 2015, collecting data for reference year 2014. The goal of the ECSTS is to provide statistical information about energy consumption, expenditures, and energy efficiency in Egypt, Jordan and Palestine, in all modes of transportations, namely: road, railway, maritime, and air. In addition, the goal is to link the resulted statistics to national policies on energy production and consumption based on collected statistics.
|The authors would like to thank the Islamic Development Bank and the Department for International Development of the UK for providing funds for the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (UNESCWA) to implement the project “Strengthening Statistical Capacity of Arab Countries in Producing Energy Statistics and Energy Consumption Surveys” in the three Arab countries: Egypt, Jordan and Palestine. We thank the Director of the national statistical offices of Egypt (CAPMAS), of Jordan (DOS) and of Palestine (PCBS) who supported the survey at high level offices and the survey departments and the energy statistics units staff who worked intensively to conduct the survey in a short time and coordinated with the line ministries. The Director of the Statistics Division at ESCWA Juraj Riecan provided support and guidance.
