The population employed in this study is industrial firms listed on the Amman Stock Exchange between 2017 and 2019. The method of sampling employed in this study is purposive sampling. 39 firms are analyzed, with 117 items of data being achieved. Also, this study applies statistical testing via multiple regression.
