Abstract

In recent there are a number of socio-economic development selections in Jerash, but its impact
is largely intangible for local community. For tourism to the local community of Jerash,
perhaps the most important thing that distinguishes the research is that most of the previous
research of Jerash studies the attitudes and perceptions of the local population, but this research
used quantitative and qualitative methods in the research methodology where he measured the
impact of promoting socio-economic development through regular interviews, observation and
the work of a linear regression model that measures the impact of the independent variable
(number of employees in the tourism sector, the number of tourists, the rate of expenditure) on
the variable income adopted for the first model and the model was distributed the income/retail
price index for the second model as well as measuring the attitudes and perceptions of the
community through questionnaires distributed to local community and stakeholders. The
results were analyzed through the statistical program SPSS as well as worked SWOT analysis
of current manifestations to enhancing socio-economic development. In addition to the local community with tourists through the manifestations of development in Jerash, however, there
are many aspects of development that have negatively affected the local community, perhaps
the most important of which is the failure to integrate the community with tourists and thus led
to a decrease in the material return of the local community due to the lack of government plans
and strategies. It is suggested that more community awareness and education programmers be
researched in order to obtain positive benefits and reduce the negative effects of tourism.
