December 1951 Arab Refugees

The Director of UNRWA in his report to the Sixth General Assembly, wrote:

The refugees are better off than the poorest levels of the native population, and in some cases better off than the Arabs of Palestine. It is, to let statistics speak, indicative of the material side of the question that the mortality rate among the refugees in Jordan (comprising more than half of all the refugees) has remained the same as in, say, 1945.”
