Jordan Population Count : A Theory in Practice

Why the hell do we need to do Population Count for Jordan ?
I can find the exact number (accurate up to 99.9 %) without moving a finger.

2.5 million Fastlink Subscribers
2.0 million Mobilecom Subscriber
1.0 million Umnia Subscriber
2 guys (My younger brother and sister don't have any mobile subscription yet)
---------------------------------------------------------------
Population Count = 5500002 NASAMEH (Jordan population count)

Good idea, but there is a problem u had to count the ppl who have 2 or more mobile #, I know alot of ppl have for example fastlink & umniah lines and may be more ...
so, u`ve to count the intersect between these companies. :)

One of my parents, who until 2 years ago viciously refused to even call cell phones now has a Mobilecom and Fastlink lines. This skews your calculations.

There was an article in A l Ghad yesterday that said one of every two jordanians has a mobile line,then they proceeded to say that there are 3.5 million subscribers in all four companies,this would roughly amount to a population of 7 million nasameh,unless 1.5 million nasamehs have 2 lines..

moi,Roba.... happy you liked it

Dar, I KNOW

Jad, Habeebi abu el jooj

Opairah, this is the basic theory, the advnced version deals with intersection and containment cases.

Abu 7amarneh, I don't know what to say, I am flattered, thank you and I will keep an eye :)

Rambling Hal, I guess Firas answered for me (thanks man)

Mirachka, yup more theories are coming up, BEWARE.

Jameed, well, your parent will be considered when calculating the "error ratio", thank you for the info. anyways :D

Salam, now that's an interesting sister-theory :D

LOL! Good one. However lets not forget that most Jordanians are having two cell phone lines for some reason that I still dont know, seriously. Ino I might understand the ones who own two lines from two differnt comapnies to make it cheaper for the callers or for them like a mobilcom line and a fastlink line (hada and at the end its no where near cheaper) bas what I dont understand is having two active lines from the same comapny =|
ino leish????

A good thinker, but you missed something important! It's that many people have more than one subscription for one (or more) mobile service providers. So these numbers can't be officially used.
